Did you know that the Port Orleans Resort celebrates Mardi Gras on Fat Tuesday each year with a cast members parade through the resort property? And you know they do it up! The resort employees follow a different theme each year and decorate golf carts, then even have a prize for the best-decorated cart! Click here for a cool story from the Disney Parks blog about the annual celebration.
And if it’s anything like last year’s (according to reports), folks come from all around (especially locals) to enjoy King Cakes, beignets, themed crafts and activities and an afterparty with live DJ, Mardi Gras-themed food & bevs and collectible Disney pins for purchase.
Regulars or veterans of Florida’s Walt Disney World know that the house of the mouse loves to celebrate a holiday! And we’re pretty sure that when the new Tiana’s Bayou Adventure log flume ride opens later in 2024, that Mardi Gras will have a regular presence in the Magic Kingdom.
Meanwhile, if you or someone you know is going to the park on Fat Tuesday, be sure to check into Port Orleans’ sweet, homegrown parade!
