I can never get enough of New Orleans Square; it is one of the least-represented lands in my collection (though I have even fewer from Critter Country, and none from Toon Town!).
I'm sure many of you recall the woman who ran for mayor of New Orleans back in 2006 who used a photo of Disneyland's New Orleans Square on her campaign web page. Was it on purpose (because it looked so clean), or did somebody not know the difference? Anyway, I'll bet that if you told the general public that this was a photo of the real Crescent City, they'd buy it. The curved wrought iron balconies feel so genuine! By the way, I am going to be running for Mayor of New Orleans in the next election; Sure, I'll have to wait four years, but it'll be worth it. Vote early, vote often.
Anyway (!), the line for Cafe Orleans (sponsored by Sara Lee) is short, let's go there for our Monte Cristo sandwich and mint julep.
Here's another view of Cafe Orleans, looking shady and lovely. It looks like there's a waitress to the left, do they still have a wait staff to take your order and bring you your food? Or has it switched over to a window service eatery? (For some reason I labeled this slide "Creole Cafe", which is just dumb).
