Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory Dinner - Disney's Port Orleans French Quarter

On Saturday, we stopped at Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory at Disney's Port Orleans Resort for dessert, but ended up sampling one of their new dinner offerings while we were there.  

Sassagoula is a Mardi Gras themed quick service restaurant located at Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter. 

Some new menu items include the barbecued pork baked potato, the chili & cheese baked potato, and a baked potato with broccoli, cheddar & bacon.  The chili & cheese potato was off limits, but the other two are gluten free.  

Because of our big lunch at the ABC Commissary at Hollywood Studios, we decided to split a barbecued pork baked potato with cheese baked on top, then eat some gluten free beignets for dessert.  All five of us dove in and quickly devoured the potato, which we all enjoyed.  After this meal, my girls asked me to make my Chicken , Bacon & Cheese Stuffed Potatoes sometime soon.  

The gluten free beignets were amazing!  My husband doesn't even order the gluten-filled ones anymore.  He loves the gluten free ones as much as the kids and I do.  The beignets are gluten, dairy, egg, and soy free, and require no advance notice to prepare.  Just tell the cast member at the beignet counter that you would like to order gluten free beignets, and they will find a chef for you.  Thankfully, the beignets are served all day, so you can enjoy them anytime Sassagoula is open.  You can read my blog post about the beignets at Sassagoula here.

  1. Hi, I'm just reading your blog and we are headed to disney this week for a few days, you are full of great info! Can you pls tell me where the french quarter is in relation to magic kingdom or epcot? We are staying at the new four seasons hotel. Is it just another hotel?
    thanks! Also looking for fast service places to eat for lunch in magic kingdom that are gf friendly. My three girls and I are gf.

    1. Port Orleans French Quarter is a resort that is just down the road from the Four Seasons. For quick service lunch at the Magic Kingdom, I recommend Columbia Harbour House or Be Our Guest.
