Universal Orlando’s Mardi Gras

If you are new to Mardi Gras at Universal Orlando here is a taste of what you can expect.

What’s even more exciting than Mardi Gras? Universal’s Mardi Gras! We’re going beyond the bayou with an awesome party inspired by Carnaval celebrations from around the world. Watch a parade (on select nights) of spectacular floats. Sample flavors from the bayou to Brazil and beyond. Enjoy live music all around and concerts (on select nights), then go ahead and get your beads and your party on!”

The Fun


This year’s theme includes a  “Mythical Realms of Mardi Gras” parade – featuring six new floats inspired by fantastical creatures like dragons, phoenixes, unicorns, and more that will join Universal’s traditional lineup of New Orleans-inspired floats – such as the iconic, two-story Riverboat and nearly 50-foot-long King Gator.

The Food


Experience the flavors of global Carnaval celebrations from New Orleans to Brazil to Belgium and beyond with an expansive menu featuring more than 50 tasting-sized items. Plus, guests can enjoy more for less with the purchase of the Universal Orlando Resort Food and Beverage Card by paying $65 for a $75 card, and Universal Orlando Passholders have exclusive access to a $150 card for only $120.

The Concerts


Universal Orlando has a great lineup of concerts planned. For more info and to see the complete schedule check out their website here.

I am really looking forward to Mardi Gras at Universal Orlando. The theming is so immersive and really transports you. I’ve never been to New Orleans but I am excited to experience Mardi Gras here in Orlando. I also really enjoy trying new dishes I might not normally experience. The parade has me the most excited though and I can’t wait to see the new floats this year.
