Mardi Gras as Universal Orlando Starts This Weekend

Mardi Gras kicks off this weekend at Universal Studios theme park at Universal Orlando this Saturday, February 9, 2019! This year’s party is starting off with a bang, and featuring a live concert from BUSH. Other Mardi Gras offerings include a nightly parade and festive party food.

This parade is animal themed and features all of the colorful floats, masks and parade performers you would expect to see at the New Orleans event. Be ready to catch as strands of the iconic beads are thrown into the audience.  The parade can be seen every night of Mardi Gras. The start time varies from night to night so be sure to check the time the day you are visiting. A special parade viewing area for pint-size party goers can be found outside of the Brown Derby Hat Shop. The space dubbed the Little Jesters Viewing Area offers unobstructed viewing for kiddos and opens an hour before the parade begins.

Every day at 4:00 P.M. the French Quarter Courtyard will open. During Mardi Gras, the area usually known as  New York gets a Cajun makeover and features food, music, fun, and specialty libations. The portions this year are tasting size so don’t be afraid to try several different offerings. While you enjoy your tasty selections the atmosphere comes alive with live music straight out of Louisiana including jazz, blues, and zydeco.
