Disneyland will be providing us with a Mardi Gras celebration. Their family-friendly offering will be held on select days throughout February and early March, bringing additional entertainment to the area.
Disney said that live music would fill the streets, along with Disney characters, street performers and plenty of food food to spice up the already festive New Orleans Square. The celebration will be alive from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. on these dates:
- February 10, 11, 12, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 24, 25, 26
- March 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11
Princess Tiana, Louis Naveen, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald, Goofy, Pluto and Chip ‘n’ Dale will all come dressed to party Mardi Gras-style, offering special performances. I wonder if this means that there will be any chance for Tiana's Showboat Jubilee to return to Disneyland. If you don't remember the show, it used the Riverboats as a stage and told an all musical version of Princess and the Frog. For our original post on Tiana's Showboat Jubilee click here.
Not only will Disney add a different lineup of food for New Orleans Square they will also give us some special menu choices. While Disney hasn't announced them yet they are sure to be good.
