Universal Studios: Mardi Gras
Orlando may be your destination but what if you could visit two cities at once? It’s nearly spring in the City Beautiful and that means Universal Studios “Mardi Gras” is in full swing. Though you’re staying with us in the heart of the Sunshine State the “Big Easy” is only two miles away thanks to Universal’s take on New Orleans favorite tradition.
Running every night from now until March 25th 2017 (50 nights from start to finish), Mardi Gras is Florida’s biggest party. On select nights come on down and watch as headliners from all genres of music perform live on the Universal Musical Plaza Stage at Universal Studios Florida.
Can’t make it to one of the concerts? Join in the parade every night for millions of beads, incredible floats and colorful street performers. Bring your “Little Jesters” because they have their own viewing area to ensure they can see all the rockin’ fun.
If all your celebrating makes you hungry groove your way to the French Quarter Courtyard to enjoy some sizzlin’ Cajun creations. Big Easy favorites like Spicy Jambalaya, Grilled Andouille Sausage, Shrimp Gumbo and more are on the menu along with some “cooler” options for those who can’t handle the heat.
For some nightlife is the main event! Universal's City Walk has many different venues available for you to celebrate at night like you’re truly on Bourbon Street. City Walk is just steps away for even more New Orleans themed music, food and fun.
Book and join us for Florida and Louisiana fun!
