Disney World Holiday Eats
With Halloween soon to be over, we’re about to go into full-on holiday mode at Disney World. The parks are already starting to get decorated, and Disney released a full list of 50 foods and snacks that will be available during the holiday season.
From a Christmas Cookie Milkshake to a holiday Mickey Cinnamon Roll to a Reindeer Mousse, we’re ready to dig into all of the fun holiday treats.
Port Orleans — French Quarter Reopens
Disney’s Port Orleans Resort — Riverside reopened on October 14th, and just recently, Disney’s Port Orleans Resort — French Quarter reopened on October 28th. And the dining locations Scat Cat’s Club and Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory reopened with them.
And yes, you can get Mickey Beignets at Disney World again, for the first time in over a year and a half. This means that only one hotel has yet to reopen at Disney World — Disney’s All-Star Music Resort, whose reopening has been delayed.
Modified Meet and Greets Return to Disney World
Disney World guests can now get more one-on-one time with some of their favorite characters again. Modified meet and greets, now called character “sightings” are now available at both Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
