Mardi Gras is later this month, and to celebrate, there is a new Berry Beignet available at Disney’s Port Orleans French Quarter Resort! Come see what we thought.
Beignets are a traditional donut made famous in New Orleans. They are very basic; fried dough covered in powdered sugar. We stopped by the New Orleans-themed moderate resort at Walt Disney World, Port Orleans French Quarter, to give this Disney version a try.
You can find these beignets at Scat Cat’s Club Lounge. When you enter the lobby of the resort, Scat Cat’s can be found to the left.
Berry Beignet with Whiskey Pipette — $9.00
Mickey-shaped beignet with fresh mixed berry compote, house-made Uncle Nearest 1884 Small Batch Premium Whiskey caramel sauce, mint, and powdered sugar.
The Berry Beignet is offered with or without the pipette of Uncle Nearest 1884 Small Batch whiskey.
We ordered it with the optional whiskey pipette. It’s also worth noting that because we chose the alcoholic option, the beignet we received was just a square rather than the Mickey-shaped one shown in the photo.
The beignet itself was perfect. Soft and fluffy with just the right amount of sweetness. You couldn’t really taste the whiskey caramel sauce on top of it, though. The mixed berry compote you could tell was fresh, and the mint leaves were a nice touch of flavor. That alone tasted very refreshing.
We ordered it with a house made Uncle Nearest 1884 Small Batch Whiskey pipette. Once we got to the areas that were soaked in whiskey, the whiskey flavor completely took over and made the beignet soggy. While we would recommend this Berry Beignet, next time, we would skip the whiskey pipette.
Will you make a trip to Disney’s Port Orleans Resort to try this beignet? Let us know in the comments.

We are passholders from PA and visit disney world 2 to 3 times a year. We always make the trip to port orleans for beignets each trip. They are a great treat and well worth the trip. This new one looks delicious. Not a big alcohol fan so most likely would skip that but rest of it looks delicious. Not sure if this will be available when we come down in July but I definitely would recommend making the trip to port orleans for beignets. If carriage rides are back at port orleans would reccomend that too. We did that pre covid along with beignets and it was a great night out. Kids loved seeing some of the resort and Christmas lights from a horse drawn carriage. A great date night as well if you dont have kids.
We have been coming to French Quarter for many years and enjoy most of its charm and activities. The original beignets were the best ever , prior to being replaced by the current “doughnut-type” offered at the resort. At Scat cats you can still enjoy this better version of beignet- and not the Mickey shaped donut offered at the food court!!
