    If you are from Southeast Louisiana and your schools have Mardi Gras off, and you go to Disney and dress in Purple Green and Gold...Let's countdown together:)
    172 days until Fat Tuesday (so about 170 days until we hit the parks)

    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! :joker:

    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.

    We're under 100 days, y'all!!!
    And for some strange reason, my 6yo son has started humming/singing/modifying 'It's a Small World' :thumbsup2 DW says, does he know we're not going until February? Me: yeah, but it's either he sings that, or I start with Zip a Dee Do Dah... take your pick. :rotfl2: Oh, and major bummer... I just saw that Splash Mountain is scheduled to be down from 02 Jan to 19 Mar :sad:
    And DW just found out that her OTHER BFF will be going to WDW for Mardi Gras week, staying at "our" resort, Caribbean Beach (we're staying at "theirs", Port Orleans Riverside). We already knew the first BFF was going, but staying off-site with the school band group... they booked about the same time we did. Even so, I don't know of anything for certain, but I'm wondering if there could be trouble if/when these three get together over there... I'm sure there'll be some collusion/coordination between now and then, ya think? :stir: ::yes:: :duck:
    But that's why we go... the more the merrier party:

    Yeah, we were bummed about Splash Mountain, too. But excited about the new Fantasyland expansion! Plus, test track was closed last time we were there and that will be open again.

    Add us to excaping Mardi Gras madness, although we won't be going until the end of Mardi Gras week. We'll be staying at BLT for the first time!
