Will You Do Anything Special for Mardi Gras?

Do you go to any local Mardi Gras celebrations, or celebrate it in some way? We've been known to make a king's cake, which we'll probably do again this year.

I wish there were a Mardi Gras celebration somewhere at WDW. They make quite a production of it over at Universal!

Has anyone been to NO for MG? When I lived in Atlanta, I heard that Mobile, Alabama also stages a big celebration, and that theirs is far more family-friendly. I'd love to see it - once at least Smile

Does anyone know if they do anything at Port Orleans French Quarter, after all they are Mardi Gras themed all year long?

I actually called down to POFQ last week to ask about anything special going on. Nothing's happening though, if you want to celebrate Mardi Gras at Disney, you'll need to head to Disneyland, where they happen to through an awesome party both inside the park and at Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen. Smile

I will probably spend my Mardi Gras getting ready for vacation, since I leave for WDW the day afterwards!

I have been to New Orleans three times for Mardi Gras. What a great time. I don't have any plans for this year but I will be wearing my beads that day to spread some holiday cheer.

Since I work at Universal Studios, I attended the parade for Mardi Gras last week and intend to stay after work to watch again tomorrow. Last year I was working at Universal during Mardi Gras but too busy with work to participate beyond that. I have done nothing for Mardi Gras outside of Universal Studios, but I would love to see the big celebrations in New Orleans and the one I heard about in Mobile.

Around here it's called Shrove Tuesday and everyone eats fastnachts (donuts). If you come from an English tradition, it's also called Shrove Tuesday, but everyone eats pancakes. I've done both the donuts and the pancakes, but I've never done Mardi Gras or Carnaval.

Oh, yeah, in that sense I guess I have done Mardi Gras in San Francisco, except that we called it Canaval. I am not up on all of the terminology!!
