Plan your Universal Orlando getaway!

Mardi Gras Parade
Experience dancers and street performers amidst themed parade floats. This year’s theme is “Treasures of the Deep” featuring floats inspired by a Treasure Map, the Sunken City of Atlantis and a treasure-filled Lost Ship Lagoon. Let’s not forget all the beads! The Little Jester’s Parade Viewing Area offers an unobstructed view for kids.

Live Music
Catch some of the biggest names in music live in concert on select nights at the Music Plaza stage. Upcoming shows include REO Speedwagon (Mar. 7), Earth, Wind & Fire (Mar. 21) and Gavin DeGraw (Mar. 29).

Open daily at 4 p.m., Universal Studios’ New York area is transformed into the French Quarter Courtyard. Enjoy authentic Cajun and Creole cuisine, from jambalaya and shrimp gumbo to po’boys, beignets and much more deliciousness. On concert nights, join revelers in Universal Studios Florida’s Battery Park for a crawfish boil and exclusive parade views.

Mardi Gras Tribute Store
Explore a dusty forgotten jazz hall and New Orleans’ many historic cemeteries, as you check out special apparel and commemorative gifts that celebrate New Orleans tradition and Mardi Gras.
