We are also going this Mardi Gras -- it will be our kids first time going to Disney world. They have been to Disneyland already, but I have been planning for a couple of years for a big DW vacation and now that my youngest is potty trained, I think it is a great time to go!

We just booked on Saturday with the Play/Stay/Dine thing.
I've been much more likely to be going TO New Orleans for Mardi Gras rather than LEAVING it, but that's the way life's turning this year.
We'll be at Port Orleans Riverside (where else for Mardi Gras?) from 10-16 Feb.

Does Disney, or even any Yat guests, do anything to honor the day, or is Orlando too far outside the sphere?

We're in.

I think we're planning to wear mardi gras shirts and maybe let my DD give beads to the princesses on Mardi Gras day.

We're from Louisiana and we'll be leaving the Mardi Gras craziness behind for a little Disney magic instead! We'll be staying at POFQ so we'll get a bit of NOLA on Mardi Gras!

We'll be there at the same time. I hope you guys have fun! I noticed you are from "a tad bit north of New Orleans" - so are we. I've never been to WDW at any other time than Summer, so I'm really excited!

Hi from Covington. We are super excited and hoping for some great weather. I have only been once about 8 years ago during spring break.
