Today (February 25) is Mardi Gras 2020, and as usual the resort will be having a few fun activities to celebrate Fat Tuesday, leading off with the annual cast member's Pargo Parade. This is a mini-parade created as a competition between the cast members from the different departments at the resort. All guests are welcome to view the parade as it wends its way along the riverbank pathways from Riverside over to French Quarter, starting at 10am.

10am-11am - Mardi Gras Pargo Parade: Travelling through both Port Orleans Riverside & Port Orleans French Quarter.
6pm-9pm - French Quarter's Magical Mardi Gras: Join us in the French Quarter Lobby Courtyard for Mardi Gras fun for the whole family! Our Magical Mardi Gras Celebration will include dancing, character meet and greets, a King Cake eating contest, Mardi Gras Crafts ($), giveaways, and more!
7pm - Movie Under the Stars: End your Mardi Gras celebrations by joining us between Buildings 5 & 6 at French Quarter for a showing of The Princess and the Frog.

There are several planned Live Video Streams of the parade, starting around 10am. We hope to host one on our own Facebook Page or Facebook Group, and some of the folks from Eyes on Ears plan to be there too and will be streaming via their YouTube Channel pages.
