How About That Prime Rib Dip at Port Orleans? Well…

 by Ray Keating



April 23, 2022


Let’s say that you’re staying at or just visiting Disney’s Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter, and a sandwich is in order. Perhaps you’re looking for lunch, something on the quick side when taking a break from the Mardi Gras-themed pool, or after a day at the parks, you simply need some sustenance before crashing in the room.

I recently ventured into the Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory – a quick service restaurant open from 7:00 AM to 11:00 PM – on the hunt for a satisfying lunch.


I chose the Prime Rib Dip sandwich, featuring shaved prime rib with provolone cheese served with French Onion Au Jus and French Fries. The prime rib was on the salty side, with some peppers and onions serving as plusses. The sandwich un-ironically was best dunked in the accompanying dip. By the way, there was a large amount of solid fries on the plate.

How to sum this up? Well, there was no “wow” factor. Instead, it was an adequately tasty sandwich, falling into the better-than-fast-food category. It meets the needs I mentioned at the outset, but not much more. It would have been nice to be able to say more, but that was not to be. Sometimes a sandwich is just a sandwich, even at a Disney resort. However, since I like the look and feel of Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter, that seemed to make this sandwich just a bit tastier.
