HUGE Mardi Gras Celebration

HUGE Mardi Gras Celebration

Fun Spot America Theme Park guests can enjoy the flavors of New Orleans such as Jambalaya, Po’ Boys, Fried Gator Bites, and everyone’s favorite, hot fresh Beignets. There are festive decorations and music throughout the parks, and Orlando’s newest attraction, the escape room, received a Mardi Gras refresh, as The Backwater Bayou.

A Mardi Gras celebration isn’t complete without the world-renowned Nawlins food and drinks. Whether you’re craving something with a little spice, a sweet treat, or a drink to sit back and relax with, the Bayou Bites are homemade and WHO-DAT delicious!

In addition to delicious festive dishes and drinks, every Saturday in both parks, children 12 and under are welcome to line the park for our Children’s Mardi Gras Parade. The Fun Spot Trains will be decorated in Mardi Gras colors and Fun Spot Revelers will toss beads to children as it makes its way through the parks. Children celebrating their Birthday Party at each park that day will become the honorary Kings and Queens of the parade and are invited to follow the trains on their route.
