Mardi Gras: Universal Orlando

Need an alternate to Mardi Gras in New Orleans for your clients? Look into Mardi Gras at Universal Orlando!

Universal Orlando Resort announced that next year’s edition of the theme park’s Universal Mardi Gras: International Flavors of Carnaval will return from February 3 through April 7, 2024.

This year’s Mardi Gras parade will be complete with tons of colorful beads, dazzling floats and energetic street performers, and on select nights, live concerts by yet-to-be-announced talent to cap off the festivities.

Visitors celebrating the spirit of Carnaval can experience all the excitement of Universal Mardi Gras with regular admission to Universal Studios Florida or a valid Universal Orlando Pass.

For Universal Orlando guests looking to experience the cuisine of New Orleans, the theme park offers the Mardi Gras Float Ride and Dine Experience, which reserves a spot to toss beads from a Mardi Gras float during the event’s vibrant parade.

The Mardi Gras Float Ride and Dine Experience includes one appetizer, entree, dessert, non-alcoholic beverage (starting at $84.99 plus tax per person) and one Mardi Gras parade float rider reservation on the same day.

Universal Orlando Passholders receive a 15 percent discount off the ticketed price of the experience with a valid Pass when purchasing in person at the Front Gate or a Guest Services location of the theme park.
