Street Party
The sights and sounds of Bourbon Street are ready to take over the Wild Arctic Plaza with a DJ, street performers, and a physically distanced dance party. During select times from 12:30 p.m. - 6 p.m., you can dance your cares away in the heart of Mardi Gras fun!

Mardi Gras Beignets
Gulf Coast Flavors
Enjoy classic Gulf Coast flavors as part of our Seven Seas Food Festival! From 11:30 a.m. to park close, you can dig into deliciously sweet beignets, savor the smoky flavor of the Bourbon BBQ Smoked Pork Po’ Boy, and more.

If you’ve already had your fill of beignets (is that even possible?), there’s still a whole ocean of flavors to explore. Discover special Asian, Latin, European, Polynesian, and North Atlantic dishes throughout the park, along with wine, specialty cocktails, and craft brews from near and far. The Seven Seas Food Festival runs Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays Feb. 5 - May 9, plus Presidents’ Day, Feb. 15. With exquisite flavors to top off exhilarating coasters and extraordinary animals, our Seven Seas Food Festival is a voyage to stir the soul -- and warm the belly!
