Delicious, yummy, hot and tasty gluten free beignets at Disney World! These delicious and fluffy treats can also be safe for other food allergies and should be thought of as a not just gluten free, but dairy free disney beignets, soy free disney beignets (do you get the drift!)
Seriously… just look at these beauties! Not only are they absolutely delicious, but they cute too! Let’s talk about where to find them, and who would enjoy them and the ingredients + allergen procedures you need to know ahead of time before you waltz over to get them on your Disney World Vacation!
***As Always, please speak to a qualified restaurant employee when ordering food. In order to see the most accurate ingredients and risk assessment, you will need to confirm allergy safety in real-time.

Gimme the directions and tell me how to order
These beignets (said in my best princess tiana impression) are top 8 free! YES. gluten free! dairy free! soy free! nut free! egg free! (and we’re really glad this sweet treat is both shellfish and fish free because that would be grossssssss and quite frankly, a little ridiculous. )
Not only do they look appetizing, but knowing that they are safe with those with the top 8 allergies is a MAJOR bonus.
AND you can special order them to be free of the top 14 allergens (That’s right, no corn !)
Thankfully, these beignets are prepared with a dedicated fryer by a chef trained in Food Allergy awareness. BUT there is a cross contamination risk with the flour, so always talk to the Chef before ordering. They use brand of flour normally and people aren’t always comfortable with that option.
Which is SO amazing- I love that Disney is able to accommodate people like us that can’t eat whatever and whenever we want.
And finding treats like this doesn’t happen every day, in fact, these aren’t even in the Parks at Disney. (But this resort is super close to Epcot and Magic Kingdom, and you can find some yummy foods there!)
But they are ON PROPERTY- so we can hop over to the Port Orleans French Quarter and grab us some of those ‘man catching’ beignets.
ALSO- You can get these delicious treats in TWO locations at the Port Orleans resort.
The first is inside the Sassgoula Floatworks factory. Head over to the sign where you order with food allergies and speak with a chef about your order and your concerns. They can walk you through the process and you can get a meal while your there too.
AND if it’s spooky season, you can get them with pumpkin flavoring. HELLO FALL, my old friend 🎃
The second place you can find them on the new Scat Cat Club’s Cafe Menu.
Located directly outside the food court at French Quarter is this little hole in the wall (literally). You go inside and you can get drinks and beignets. Yummy, fluffy, covered in powder sugar beignets!
This is a new option as of fall 2019 and it is so welcome because the lines were getting out. of. control.
As you can see on the board above there are some special items that they can make (and they have some that are seasonal!)
If you want to get a Beignet that is also Corn Free- you want to check out the Cinnamon Sugar Allergy Friendly Options!
Want something alittle spicier? This is a seasonal option they had for Valentine’s Day.
Directions for Port Orleans French Quarter
You can get here a few different ways. The most obvious is to just drive over. Or you could get Uber/lyft/cab/rideshare what-have-you.
If you’re staying at Port Orleans riverside you can walk over, it’s a hike but nothing compared to what you walk in the parks all day.
At Disney Springs you can hope aboard a boat and head to the resort. It’s a quick and pleasant boat ride that you and the family will enjoy. This is also a great idea if you want to check out Erin Mckenna’s! Make a day of getting some allergy friendly treats.
Lastly, catch a bus from any of the PARKS (key point here) and head to Port Orleans French Quarter. Magic Kingdom is only a 10 minute bus ride and highly recommended!
While it’s not in the parks, it IS worth heading to- the food and the ambiance is perfect for everyone (especially if you love our princess Tiana!)
Seriously- get those Beignets! They are worth it
These are some of my favorite snack/treats on property. I think my favorite part is that they can be enjoyed by sooooo many people. Even if you don’t have allergies they are a yummy treat to share with those that do.
