One of our family's favorite celebrations is Mardi Gras at Universal Orlando Resort. The elaborately costumed performers, beautiful floats, live music, and New Orleans style food are not to be missed.
Our son loves to meet the performers throughout the New York section of the park. The beautifully costumed performers (many on stilts) mingle with the park guests and pose for photos.
The Mardi Gras parade is always a fun experience at Universal.
The goal for most guests, besides having a fun time, is to collect as many beads as possible. We were very happy with the amount of beads we collected this visit.
I highly recommend going to Universal Orlando Resort's Mardi Gras Celebration. The parade, food, and entertainment is one-of-a-kind and not to be missed. Mardi Gras celebration is included with your park admission and on select nights there is also live concerts from popular artists.
Mardi Gras at Universal Studios Florida is Every Night from February 3 - April 7, 2018. For more information visit Universal's Website here.
