Mardi Gras – Fat Tuesday – fell on February 9th this year.
It’s celebrated at all the Disney parks, but especially at Disneyland and Disney World!
The New Orleans Square of Disneyland is always decorated for Mardi Gras. The streets of New Orleans Square were filled with jazz music, Disney characters, street performers and delicious food at New Orleans Bayou Bash for the special event.
Special entertainment for Mardi Gras included performances by Princess Tiana, Louis and Naveen, along with meet & greet opportunities with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald, Goofy, Pluto and Chip ‘n’ Dale – all dressed up in their Mardi Gras finest!
At Disney World’s Port Orleans Resort, there was a mini-float parade consisting of themed golf carts decorated by resort cast members at 10am on Fat Tuesday. The parade featured music, select Disney characters in Mardi Gras costumes, and party beads and candy were given out to guests along the parade route.
We got to eat at Sassagoula Floatworks Food Factory at Port Orleans for Mardi Gras last year and really liked it! Dining at Disney’s Port Orleans

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???
We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.
We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney. Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
