Be A Part Of Mardi Gras At Universal Orlando!


Universal Orlando is celebrating Mardi Gras this year in a huge way! From February 11 - April 14, there's going to be food, fun, and floats throughout the park with a distinctive New Orleans feel.

The one thing people think about when they think Mardi Gras is the parade. Amazing floats and catching beads are a huge part of the celebration, and this one is no different. On Saturdays and other select nights, you'll be able to see amazing costumes, stilt walkers, and street performers as well as the iconic floats. Even better, if you're a Premier or Preferred Passholder, you can even sign up to ride ON the floats, tossing beads and doubloons to spectators! Click HERE to be taken to the sign-up page.

But that's not all the excitement! There's a special French Quarter area where you'll be able to try all sorts of delicious Cajun foods, an after-party at Citywalk, and a huge music series! With acts like B-52's, Kelly Clarkson, Boyz II Men, Goo Goo Dolls, and Cyndi Lauper, there's bound to be an act that you don't want to miss out on.
