In addition to the live concerts, partygoers can also revel in the following Mardi Gras festivities:

This year’s original nighttime parade theme, “Planet Mardi Gras,” comes to life in six incredibly detailed floats that fuse Mardi Gras flare with dazzling cosmic-inspired elements like comets, rockets and martians. These new floats join Universal’s traditional lineup of New Orleans-inspired floats to wind through the streets of Universal Studios Florida on select nights – accompanied by high-energy performers, catchy music and tons of beads.

Guests can take their taste buds on an international culinary journey by sampling more than 50 tasting-sized delicacies inspired by diverse flavors from around the world. Signature dishes include the tasty Crawfish Boil and melt-in-your-mouth Beignets from New Orleans, Coconut Curry Shrimp Laksa (a sweet and spicy noodle soup) from Southeast Asia, and Salchipapas (a popular street food made with sausage and potatoes) from Central America. The best way to experience all the flavors of Mardi Gras is with Universal Orlando Resort’s “Food & Beverage Card and Lanyard,” which allows guests to enjoy more for less by paying $65 for a $75 card and $120 for a $150 card.

The Mardi Gras Tribute Store is back with an all-new theme, Float Factory Warehouse, featuring four highly themed rooms designed to depict the creative process of bringing a parade float to life. Guests will encounter everything from pencil sketches and scale models to colorful parade décor and props while exploring the latest Mardi Gras gear and themed treats.
