Let the good times roll!
After two amazing weekends of “Happy Lunar New Year,” it’s time for Mardi Gras celebrations at Disneyland park. The next three weekends will be filled with jazzy music, the sensational food of New Orleans and Disney characters in their Mardi Gras finery.
For Mardi Gras, Princess Tiana and her friends will help move “Family Fun Weekends” into New Orleans Square, with a celebration that features a lively street-party atmosphere and warm Southern hospitality.
You can catch the The Royal Street Bachelors playing their tunes at the French Market Stage, or join the fun with special interactive entertainment.
- Princess Tiana’s Mardi Gras Celebration – Colorfully-costumed dancers, together with Tiana, Louis and Naveen, burst into New Orleans Square and make their way through the land. You can clap and dance along.
- Jambalaya Jazz Cavalcade – Led by the Jambalaya Jazz Band, a cast of Disney characters dressed in their Mardi Gras attire proceeds to the Court of Angels for a meet-and-greet with guests. Look for Mickey and Minnie as they get ready to celebrate Mardi Gras.
Something new is on the menu for the first time at New Orleans Square – “Mickey” King Cake! You can also find Mardi Gras cupcakes, mint juleps and specialty items at the French Market and other New Orleans Square dining locations. Plus, you’ll be able to meet characters at a photo location in the Court of Angels.
The fun gets started this weekend – Friday, Saturday and Sunday – and it continues the following two weekends: February 25-27 and March 4-6.
Mardi Gras Celebrations occur in New Orleans Square at Disneyland park, beginning at 10:30 a.m. The last Jambalaya Jazz Cavalcade begins at 5 p.m. Look for show times in the daily park guide.
