I am sure you have seen the lines as well. On a hot day, they can stretch the length of the New Orleans train station! So, what is all the hype, you ask.
The Mint Julep Bar is known for just 2 things: the Mint Julep and the Mickey shaped beignets. This makes for the perfect snack combination!
A beignet is a French pastry that is like a combination of a scone and a donut. The fried dough is covered in powered-sugar and served warm. You can purchase beignets at other locations in the Disneyland Resort, like Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen Express in Downtown Disney or Café Orleans in Disneyland’s New Orleans Square. Yet, the beignets at the Mint Julep Bar are Mickey-shaped and this makes them takes 100 times better!
Choose between a 3-pack or a 6-pack, but be warned, this is a hearty snack and make affect the outcome of your next ride attraction… if you catch my drift! My husband and I have found that a 3-pack is more than enough to share.
There is even an exquisite Victorian bench perched nearby for you to sit and enjoy your special treat!
I am not one to enjoy sweet drinks (I don’t drink soda and very rarely drink juice), yet I found myself truly delighting in the Mint Julep. It was not too sweet and not too sour. I did not have that “cotton mouth” feeling with this drink. I am truly looking forward to my next visit to the Mint Julep Bar in Disneyland Park.
If you find a dish that you really enjoy at the Disneyland Resort, be sure to stop by Guest Services and ask for the recipe!
