    Our family will be visiting Disney Springs next week. We do not have magic bands as we will not be visiting the parks. Are we able to ride the free boat from Disney Springs to Port Orleans Resort to buy beignets?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Amy! I'm so glad that I get to answer your question about my favorite attraction at Walt Disney World Resort: the food.

    On your visit to Disney Springs next week, you are more than welcome to take the boat down the Sassagoula River to Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter to enjoy some beignets at Scat Cat's Club Café. Even if you don't have Theme Park tickets or aren't a guest at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, you can use the complimentary transportation to go wherever you want to go. The Mickey-Shaped Beignets are great on their own, but there's also a Mickey-Shaped Beignets Sundae, which is the perfect way to take your New Orleanian treat to the next level!

    When you're done with your snack, you can take the boat back to Disney Springs or catch a bus from the closest stop. Disney Springs will be open until 11 p.m. on the day you're planning on visiting, so make sure to leave yourself plenty of time to get back before it all shuts down for the evening.

    Have a magical day, Amy!

I'm a personal stylist and I live in Texas with my husband and our three rescue animals. We are Disney Parks-obsessed and love enjoying all the magic that's out there especially for grown-ups. In fact, we even opted out of a tropical honeymoon to spend a blissful week at Walt Disney World Resort instead! I'm thrilled to be on the planDisney Panel and I'm excited to share everything I've learned from all of our trips and help you plan a memorable family vacation.  Learn More About Jessica
