Mardi Gras brings a French Quarter vibe to Fun Spot America

by Susan and Simon Veness

Mardi Gras returns to the Fun Spot America parks in Kissimmee and Orlando from now through April 4, 2022, with a kid-friendly parade, themed food, and family-fun “foto spots.”

Green, purple, and yellow décor is the first clue The Big Easy has come to Fun Spot America. The tantalizing scent of festival foods tempts guests even further, while the swingin’ sounds of jazz music really gets the party going.

Mardi Gras fun starts with festive “fotos”:

Event-themed photo backdrops have been set up around the park, and they’re free for all guests to enjoy.

Dance along with a kid-friendly parade:

On Saturday from now through April 4, guests of all ages can sing and dance as French Quarter-inspired parades wind their way through each park (and they’re free!). Be ready when the bead necklaces are thrown your way!

Fuel up with Bayou Bites:

Each of the Fun Spot America parks have cooked up a special Mardi Gras menu of traditional sweet and savory favorites, plus the Nawlins Spirits that help make the event an annual fun-fest.
