Disneyland: Beignets

One of my very favorite Disneyland treats are the beignets. In fact, the promise of these delectable Mickey-shaped puffs of fried dough is often the only way Matt can get me out of bed and lined up in time for the Magic Morning early admission.

Luckily, the Mint Julep Bar in New Orleans Square opens at 8:00 am. A five minute pit stop and I am on my way to the Haunted Mansion with beignet-filled paper bag in hand. This moment is made even more magical during Halloween when they roll out the seasonal flavors and I can have my beloved pumpkin beignets in all their cinnamon nutmegy (yup, thats totally a word) glory. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
