At Disney World’s Port Orleans Resort, there is a mini-float parade consisting of themed golf carts decorated by resort cast members at 10am on Fat Tuesday.

The parade features music, select Disney characters in Mardi Gras costumes, and free party beads and candy for guests along the parade route.

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

   by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins

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.
