Will Run For Beignets...Beignet Dash At Port Orleans French Quarter

Will Run For Beignets...Beignet Dash At Port Orleans French Quarter

Last weekend we stayed at Port Orleans Riverside for our first Disney trip with Ryder.

I knew going into it I wanted to participate in the Beignet Dash taking place right next door at French Quarter.

The Beignet Dash is a 2.5K around the French Quarter & Riverside resorts. It takes place every Sunday and starts at 8a ET. Check-in for the race begins at 7:30a ET which is when you’ll be given your bib and bottled waters.

You can sign up in advance or on the day of and it’s $15 per person (plus tax).

There were around 25 people the day we raced. When we started, they had the runners line up first and then everyone else line up after.

The Port Orleans resorts are really beautiful so this is a really nice race. It’s a fun run so there’s no time limit. Feel free to walk or run at your own pace. There will be a recreation Cast Member with the last participant but they won’t rush you.

At the end of the race, you’re greeted by the Recreation CM’s with streamers and a special guest visiting the French Quarter. You’re given your medal and there’s props you can take photos with.

The best part of this race…you get BEIGNETS at the end! Your bib will have a voucher on it for 3 beignets at the quick service location (Sassagoula) at French Quarter.

This fun run was SO MUCH FUN! I’ll absolutely do it again next time we’re at French Quarter on a Sunday!

Apparently there’s other fun runs at Saratoga Springs, Coronado Springs, and the Yacht Club so I can’t wait to check those out!
