Universal Orlando Resort has so much to offer at all times of year, but from around February to April each year, the Universal Studios Florida park gets a little more pizazz as they add in Mardi Gras celebrations, all included with the price of your regular admission! It includes international inspired food booths, a parade complete with beads, and concerts by some of your favorite artists on select nights. Join us as we go beyond the Bayou for Universal's Mardi Gras, featuring NOLA favorites and the best of Carnaval celebrations around the world.
The 2023 event is International Flavors of Mardi Gras and runs from February 4th to April 16th, 2023. Due to a special event on March 31st, the parade will not be offered.
The parade is always a great time, full of energy, beautiful floats and beads to catch while you watch.
