So, you’re asking “What is the Beignet Dash?” Well, it’s a 1.5 mile run through Port Orleans Resort every Sunday morning. It begins and ends between building 5 and Doubloon Lagoon Pool. Check in is at 7:30am and the run begins at 8:00. The entry fee is $15 for each participant. When you register you will receive an official race bib. When you complete the run, you will get a plastic medal, a goody bag with Mardi Gras themed trinkets, and a voucher for beignets at Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory!
From what I’ve read, you can walk or run in this “race.” It’s very low key and enjoyable. Everyone is welcome, even if you aren’t a guest at Port Orleans. The one thing I could not find was if strollers were allowed.
Would this be something you would be interested or willing to do on your next Walt Disney World Vacation? I personally would love to try this adventure. I’m always up for trying something new at Disney and the beignets are just the motivator I need!
