Mardi Gras – Fat Tuesday – is today – February 13, 2018!
It’s celebrated at all the Disney parks, but especially at Disney World and Disneyland!
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 mini parade features music, select Disney characters in Mardi Gras costumes, and free party beads and candy for 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! It’s a Mardi Gras celebration there every day!
House specialties include famous New Orleans-style Beignets, fresh baked goods, pizza, pasta, hamburgers, split-roasted chicken, BBQ ribs, Po’ Boys and scrumptious sandwiches.
And, Princess Tiana will be at her meet and greet area all day signing autographs for guests:
The New Orleans Square of Disneyland is always decorated for Mardi Gras!
The streets of New Orleans Square are filled with jazz music and the smells of delicious cajun food.
Don’t forget to meet Princess Tiana from Disney’s ‘Princess and the Frog’ movie!
Interested in Disney Bounding at the parks as Princess Tiana?
It’s easy to do!

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.
