While visiting Universal Studios Orlando is always a fantastic time, Mardi Gras season is one of our favorite times of year to visit! Read on to find it why!
As if there was not enough to love at Universal normally, Mardi Gras season has so much to offer!
2. Food, food, and more food!
During Mardi Gras, Universal brings out some seasonal fan favorites (I’m talking about you Twisted Taters and Pizza Fries!!), as well as having some Mardi Gras specific goodies such as a crawfish boil, king cake, specialty drinks and many more! And, if you are a foodie, they release tasting lanyards so that you can try out all of the goodies you wish to without breaking the bank!
On the way out of the parks, you can also pick up a Mardi Gras special edition doughnut from Voodoo Doughnuts! The flavor is a powdered doughnut, covered in Mardi Gras themed sprinkles on one side, with coffee flavored filling. I am not normally one for coffee flavored things, but this was a fantastic doughnut!
3. The Mardi Gras Parade!
Universal’s Mardi Gras parade is a fantastic, colorful sight that includes the opportunity to collect beads (my son proudly declared himself “king of beads” for the night!). Additionally, if you happen to be a passholder – you have the opportunity to be a float rider and experience the parade from a different perspective!
4. Concert Series
Another thing that runs concurrently with Mardi Gras season are concert weekends! Performers such as Busch, Macklemore, NF, and many more put on concerts during the March/April Mardi Gras season.
Overall, it was a hit in our household and we will be sure to visit next year as well!
