Come Celebrate Mardi Gras and Carnevale at Disney Springs!

The beginning of March marks the time to get together with friends and celebrate Mardi Gras. While famously celebrated on Bourbon Street in New Orleans, Disney Springs is offering up its own spin on this favorite holiday complete with food and entertainment that will have you “jazzed” to celebrate!

First things first, you have to dress the part, right?

New Minnie Mardi Gras Ears

No celebration is complete without a pair of ears and these Mardi Gras-inspired Minnie Mouse ears make for the perfect party accessory! These beauties feature all the fun colors and patterns of Mardi Gras.

The House of Blues Restaurant & Bar is offering classic New Orleans favorites such as Steak Po’Boy, Jambalaya, Gumbo, and Bourbon Bread Pudding.

You can grab all of these dishes at the Smokehouse grab and go window now through March 5th. In addition to delicious food, there will be live music, drink specials and prizes March 1-5 in the House of Blues Courtyard. With no cover or reservations required, this is a celebration you won’t want to miss!
