What is a Beignet?
A beignet is a french pastry that is deep fried and covered with powdered sugar. It is very popular in New Orleans.
Where are the Gluten-free Beignets in Walt Disney World?
The Port Orleans French Quarter Hotel! I ordered them at Scat Cats which is right next to the Sassagoula Food court. Rumor has it you can also order them at the food court, but I did not see any signage indicating that. I almost gave up until I stumbled upon Scat Cats.
How do I get from Disney Springs to the Port Orleans French Quarter Hotel?
One thing I hate about going to Disney hotels is stopping at the gate. They WILL let you park if you are saying you are there to eat. USUALLY. But today we were at Disney Springs, which meant we could take the boat!

Disney Springs Hotel Boats
The loading dock boats to the Disney hotels (Saratoga Springs, Old Key West, Port Orleans French Quarter, and Port Orleans Riverside) are located on the Market Place side of Disney Springs. Past the large Disney store, keep walking toward Saratoga Springs. You will need to leave through the security exit.
We enjoyed the boat ride which took about 10 minutes. On the way, you get a great view of the treetop villas which was fun as you can not see these from the road anywhere in Disney. You also see one of the golf courses.
Location of Scat Cat’s inside Port Orleans French Quarter
Once you get off the boat (make sure you are going to the French Quarter!) start walking toward the pool. Then the main building with the food court/check-in. Once inside Scat Cat’s is near the entrance on the side of the drive-up check-in.
How much are Beignets at Port Orleans?
3 Beignets are $6.99 with 1 dipping sauce. Or 6 for $10.99. We were not charged extra for gluten-free, however, it has been reported there is an upcharge.
Are the Gluten-free Beignets also Mickey-shaped?
Unfortunately, they are not. My son blurted out “these aren’t Mickey-shaped” as they came out as those are what is on the sign.
Review of Gluten-free Beignets Walt Disney World
The Beignets were huge! At first, I thought I would be bringing one home. They will give you a to-go bag. However, they were so light and fluffy I could just not help myself from eating them all! I got the caramel sauce, but they were really too good to waste dipping.
The trip to Port Orleans French Quarter was quick and easy on the boat from Disney Springs. The gluten-free beignets were delicious. The trip over to the hotel was 100% worth it! The gluten free beignets are one of the best treats at Walt Disney World.
