It’s no secret that one of my favorite things about Disney
is the food. I’m back to discuss a hidden gem in Disney dining located at the
French Quarter Resort. Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory takes you straight
to the Deep South with its New Orleans inspired cuisine. During our last Disney
trip, I had the opportunity to dine at this impressive location. I know what
you’re thinking, isn’t that a food court? And yes, technically it is. But,
Floatworks is full of charm and unique menu selections. Here is the breakdown of
what is offered in each section.



Grill Shop
The highlight of this section is the fried chicken on a
biscuit. This entrée is truly southern in style and is served with generous
portions. The crawfish mac & cheese burger is another great taste of New
Orleans that can be found at the Grill.

The Bakery
It’s no secret that the gem of the French Quarter are the
beignets that are served in the Floatworks bakery. Ask for yours with caramel
sauce – you won’t regret it! There are also several other great options
including a beignet gelato sundae and Mardi Gras king cake.
Carving Shop
If you’re on the dining plan, this is the stop for you. Ask
for the prime rib to get the most bang for your buck. Entrees in this section
are also served with tasty side item options: red beans and rice, mac and
cheese, and mashed potatoes.

Pizza & Pasta Shop
This stop offers a create-your-own pizza for traditional
folks. You can also try a New Orleans classic – shrimp and grits.

Po’ Boy Shop
Here’s the star of the show for me. Floatworks offers some
great Louisiana favorites here including Gumbo and and Po’ Boy sandwiches with
catfish, shrimp, or beef. These items are cooked on the spot and full of
flavor. I was thoroughly impressed with my entrée.
Floatworks now sits at the top of my list for counter
service options at Disney. If you’re a dining plan fan, this is a great place
to visit. There is a wide variety of choices that are quite different from your
usual burger and fry options. The beignets alone are worth your trip out to the
French Quarter. The resort is beautiful, and the food is quite memorable. Next
time you’re near the Disney Springs Resorts, don’t forget to stop by
Floatworks.
