Sassagoula Floatworks & Food Factory
Welcome back to the Magical Mickey linkup: the linkup centering around a love for Disney, sharing that love and connecting with others. I hope you find this linkup as a great place to turn to for Disney content each week and help all the bloggers participating out by helping readers find that great mouse-eared content. I’m co-hosting with John from Run. Geek. Run (disney), so of course check out his blog
Sassagoula Floatworks & Food Factory
*This dining experience took place in November 2014.*
After the Disney World Jingle Jungle 5k, I knew I needed a feast to fill me up from my race that morning, but to also prep me for that night. We headed over to Port Orleans French Quarter for some brunch. (By the way, we were staying at Saratoga Springs, so we had to take the bus to Downtown Disney and then catch the bus to POFQ. We knew exactly what we were doing because we had done it before. Unfortunately, the people at DtD did not understand what we were trying to do and made us get on the wrong bus. Lesson learned – be assertive if necessary!)
Sassagoula is located at the French Quarter of Port Orleans. It is a quick-service restaurant, but it takes the Tables in Wonderland card. It is Mardi Gras themed. We love this place because it is rather inexpensive for the amount of food, and they have good options for those that are gluten-free , vegan, or have allergies. Along with Landscape of Flavors at the Art of Animation, this is one quick-service that we will go out of our way to visit. We had eaten at Sassagoula before and I was really in the mood for some vegan & gluten-free beignets, so that is what we ordered first. But since I was really hungry, I also got some Mickey waffles and potatoes AND a veggie burger with a side of chili. (We were there for a while…)
The beignets, waffles, and potatoes were awesome like my last time here. The veggie burger was ok, but I still prefer the one at Landscape of Flavors . BUT I still very much appreciate that it is a house-made burger and not some frozen thing that you find at many of the restaurants on property (many of them are gluten-free). The chili freaked me on first bite because I thought there was meat in it. I took it back to the chef, and he assured me that it was TVP (soy product) and NOT meat! So, it was safe. After I wrapped my head around that, it was pretty good, but by this time, I was absolutely stuffed! Way too much food!Sassagoula is a great place to eat if you are looking for good quality, low price quick-service food. It will continue to be a place that we visit even if we are not staying at the resort!

I love eating there! Great food at a reasonable price. And really delicious. I’m really impressed that a quick service restaurant has so many vegetarian options.
Great. 11 o’clock at night and now I’m hungry thanks to those pictures. Haha. Looks like it was a good fuel up feast for you.
When we stayed at Port Orleans, my mom and I would make a run for beignets every morning. So good!
I love the Mickey waffles. I want to go to Disney just for the food.
Now I”m hungry!! Looks and sounds great!
I just ate there Saturday. LOL Good beignets, and I like the veggie options, too. The kids parade is really cute, too.
That place looks absolutely magical! Thanks so much for sharing your post with the Tasty Tuesday linkup party. I enjoyed reading it 🙂
