'World of Color' at Disney California Adventure Park

It’s All About the Food at New Orleans Bayou Bash! at Disneyland Park

posted on February 13th, 2012 by Pam Brandon, Disney Parks Food Writer


New Orleans Bayou Bash! kicked off February 10 with fantastic live music, Disney characters and over-the-top street performers, but let’s be honest – for some of us, it’s really all about the food!

From 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. on select dates through March 11 in Disneyland park, you can nosh on everything from bacon-cheddar popcorn to a steaming bowl of bouillabaisse with lobster, red snapper, cockle clams, shrimp and mussels at Blue Bayou Restaurant.

Fat City Snapper from Café Orleans at Disneyland Park

Other savory favorites include Fat City Snapper at Café Orleans with pan-seared snapper topped with tomato Scotch Bonnet sauce and mango pineapple relish, served with crispy onion straws, asparagus, rice and red beans; Mardi Gras Southern meatloaf and a French-style chicken-pork sausage sandwich with homemade apple-carrot slaw, both at French Market Restaurant; and Mardi Gras Southern corn chowder in a sourdough bread bowl at Harbour Galley.

Red Velvet Cupcakes from French Market Restaurant at Disneyland Park

Oh, the sweets are hard to resist: fresh fried apple fritters a la mode at Blue Bayou Restaurant; chocolate and red velvet cupcakes (almost too beautiful to eat) and bananas Foster cheesecake with caramel rum sauce at French Market Restaurant; Royal Street bananas Foster crepe at Café Orleans; beignets at the Mint Julep Bar; and apple fritters rolled in cinnamon sugar at Royal Street Veranda.

It will take several visits to try it all – have you found a favorite?

Remaining dates are February 17-21; February 24-26; March 2-4 and March 9-11. Laissez les bons temps rouler!

are the food items only available on the dates of the bash entertainment (weekends) or are they available the entire week?

Woot! Just got a reservation for Blue Bayou on Thursday. All because of the bouillabaisse.

Will any of this scrumptiousness find it’s way onto the gluten-free menu?

Doh! Was just there yesterday. I missed the bacon cheddar popcorn. Gee. I guess I’ll just have to go back next weekend. Could you give me a clue where to find it? Popcorn cart? Store?

My husband and I were there this past weekend and we loved the Bayou Bash! We shared a delicious red velvet cupcake, and my husband loved the bacon cheddar popcorn (which is available from a popcorn cart, Cynthia). :-) We didn’t get to try the bananas foster crepes, though. Hopefully we’ll get a chance next year!
