Fitting right in with the theme of New Orleans, there’s the Mint Julep Bar where you can get Mickey-shaped beignets and mint juleps. And some other stuff that I’m not blogging about right now.
The Mint Julep Bar is tucked away in a corner in the back of the French Market restaurant.
In the dark
Real mint juleps consist of water, sugar, mint, and bourbon. Obviously that’s not very Disneyland-friendly. The only place you can drink in Disneyland is in Club 33. There’s alcohol available in the Mouse-Next-Door though.
Anyway, let’s look at another pretty picture.
The little quick service window
Instead of bourbon, Disneyland uses non-alcoholic Creme de Menthe syrup, lemonade, and limeade (with some real mint leaves). The result is a bright green, extremely sweet drink. I will admit I’ve only had Mint Juleps a couple of times. The sweetness can be really overwhelming. But sometimes on those really hot days, it totally hits the spot.
Here’s another picture.
The French Market restaurant
Seating is cramped, and there’s a weird hand in the foreground of my picture. Go figure.
Also back in this area is the New Orleans Square bathroom.
With a big line
If you’d like more information about the restrooms at Disneyland, and I know you are dying for it, visit the most excellent page: The Happiest Potties on Earth. I will say, though, that I’m not a fan of this particular restroom. It gets a ton of traffic because it’s the only restroom in the area. There are a lot of stalls (in the ladies–never been on the gentlemen’s side) but there always seems to be a backup at the sinks. I try to avoid this one myself, mostly because of the crowd. But when you gotta go, you gotta go!
