A Handful of Ways To Get Into The Spirit of Mardi Gras at Port Orleans Resort
Here at MickeyBlog, we can’t think of a better way to celebrate Mardi Gras then with a visit to Disney World’s stunning Port Orleans Resort! At these sister properties – French Quarter and Riverside, it is Fat Tuesday all year round.
To give you a flavor of the Big Easy fun that you can have at this moderate property, here are 5 ways to let the good times roll!
Eat beignets at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter
There’s something about these powdered sugar covered doughnuts that just conjure up those feelings of sitting at Cafe du Monde in the French Quarter.
You find these delectable doughnuts at Scat Cat’s Club-Cafe all year round!
Listen to jazz music at Scat Cat’s Club – Lounge
One of the things that make New Orleans so special is the music and Scat Cat’s Club brings the magical tunes of the Big Easy to Walt Disney World Resort guests.
Starting on February 4th, a group of live musicians will be entertaining guests at the Scat Cat’s Club every Friday, Saturday and Sunday!
While you’re at Scat Cat’s we recommend that you indulge in some awesome eats and treats like their brand new Bebop Blood Mary, and the Oyster Beignet Po Boy!
Sample savory southern cooking at Boatwright’s Dining Hall
NEWLY REOPENED, Boatwright’s DIning Hall at Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside brings the taste of the Bayou to Disney. You’ll find everything on the menu from Mardi Gras Fritters to Boatwright’s Jambalaya!
Create your own Mardi Gras bicycle parade
You and your family can make your very own Mardi Gras parade by renting bicycles. Rentals are available at both Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside and French Quarter.
You can take a spin on the classic two wheels or you may instead want to opt for a Surry Bike which you’ll find at Riverside Levee Marina!
Enjoy the scenery along the Sassagoula River
During your visit to Port Orleans be sure to take some time enjoy the picturesque Sassagoula River! Kicking off again on February 4th, horse-drawn carriage rides will be offered along its banks. You’ll enjoy the fragrant magnolias, picturesque Spanish Moss, enchanting wildlife and more!
The Sassagoula River also has some awesome functionality. You can hop a boat to Disney Springs from right along the Riverbend!
