Come Celebrate Mardi Gras and Carnevale at Disney Springs!

The end of February and into 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. In addition to delicious food, there will be live music, drink specials and prizes in the House of Blues Courtyard. With no cover or reservations required, this is a celebration you won’t want to miss!

Try the Bourbon Bread Pudding

Mardi Gras is French for “Fat Tuesday”, reflecting the practice of the last night of eating all the rich, fatty foods in the house before the ritual fasting during the 40-day Lenten season.

Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, culminates on the day before Ash Wednesday.

Don’t forget to meet Princess Tiana from Disney’s ‘Princess and the Frog’ movie!
