Universal Orlando Mardi Gras

Get those beads on and get ready for a good time.  In just a few weeks Universal Orlando’s Mardi Gras Grand Celebration starts.  On select nights from February 8-May 31 get ready to experience a “N’awlins”-inspired, family-friendly version of Mardi Gras at Universal Studios Florida.

This years Mardi Gras celebration has an all-star music lineup for you to enjoy and the best part is, it’s included in the price of your theme park ticket!!!  With acts like Robin Thicke, Nelly, The Wanted, Foreigner, Daughtry (OMG!!!), and many more, there is sure to be no lack of fun during this annual celebration.  Not only will they have those big names in music, we hear on the radio but they will also have some of the big names from New Orleans itself.  That’s right, Universal Studios will bring some of the big easy to you, so you can feel like you are right in New Orleans listening to the bands.

If you don’t live close enough to drive over for a day and go home, don’t worry, Universal has 3 on-site properties: Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, Hard Rock Hotel and Loews Royal Pacific Resort, and a fourth on-site hotel, Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort, opening March 31, 2014.

Also, the Universal City walk that just announced an expansion to come in the future (more about that in a future post).  So, get excited, get those purple, gold/yellow, and green colors ready and have some fun at Universal Orlando Mardi Gras!  Check out the full entertainment line-up below!

 It doesn’t end with great entertainment.  There will be parades to enjoy, get ready to catch those beads in the “Around The World in 80 Days” themed parade and there is a little jesters parade made strictly for kids to enjoy. There will be a “French Quarter” where you can enjoy the musician straight from New Orleans, cajun cuisine, all so you can feel like you are right in the midst of New Orleans, while still having your theme park fun!  After a day full of fun, and if you are up for it, there will be the Mardi Gras After Party, this is strictly for the 21 and older crowd.

Whether you are a little or big one, the family friendly, Mardi Gras Celebration at Universal Studios Orlando is sure to make you get in the Mardi Gras spirit.  For those of us who can’t  or just aren’t brave enough to fair New Orleans I’d say this is the answer!  Have you ever been to the Mardi Gras Celebration?

    I have always wanted to visit New Orleans during Mardi Gras, I suppose this would be a fun substitute. Looks like some great headliners are on the way!
