Before my last trip to Disneyland, I had never tasted the magic that is a Disneyland Mickey Mouse Beignet. But now….they are my favorite Disneyland snack. (Well maybe second favorite, almost nothing beats a Dole Whip as I occasionally say in our newsletter.)
The beignets are sold at the Mint Julep bar which is tucked in the back of the French Market seating courtyard.
There is no better place to enjoy your beignet than in the French Market courtyard where there is often live jazz being played. Check the day's entertainment schedule before heading over to the Mint Julep bar because throughout the day, different music groups perform.
How Many Disneyland Mickey Mouse Beignets to Purchase
Even though the bar is named after the iconic Mint Julep drink, the Mikey Mouse Beignets are front and center. The beignets are sold in 3 and 6 packs. When I went to try the drink, I was with all of my family so we decided to go for the 6 pack. What we didn't realize is that the cast members are often really nice or very sloppy and often put extra beignets into your bag.
We ended up with eight in our 6 pack.
How to Eat the Beignets
You will receive your beignets in a large white bag. Before opening the bag, give it a good hard shake to get as much powder sugar coating the beignets as possible. Make sure that you have napkins at the ready, because the beignets come out of the bag covered in powder sugar.
Side note: The Mint Julep bar beignets don't come with the fantastic strawberry and chocolate dipping sauces that are available at Cafe Orleans. We found that out the hard way.
Final Thought on the Beignets
The atmosphere that we enjoyed the beignets in make the experience absolutely fantastic as we chewed on powder sugar and listened to jazz.
