P. 604: Mardi Gras 2021: International Flavors of Carnaval announced

Recommended Posts

We were there today, it was still quite busy. 60+min waits for most of the big rides most of the afternoon.  As for February, it's really up in the air right now. Is it busier than normal because Florida is open and the rest of the country is mostly closed? It is quieter than normal because there's a worldwide pandemic still raging?  Both options (and right down the middle) are possible!  We'll keep you updated.  Also, there's a three day weekend in mid-February, or are you talking midweek? Finally, express is always an option!

So I know a lot has been discussed about how busy the park is around the Holidays (Christmas, New Year, Ect...) However, I'm curious to know what people think of a mid Feb. trip. Is the park usually crowded around that time, or has it pretty much died off from the Holidays at that point? - TIA!

I've been there twice in February.  Both visits were moderately busy and got more so towards the end of the day for Mardi Gras stuff but nothing like big holiday crowds.     I will say we didn't need express the times we went but it wasn't so quiet that it would have been a total waste of money.  

But yeah so much is out of the ordinary that an accurate prediction is difficult.

My guess is they convert it to something Trolls related since Universal seems to promote them a lot or maybe that Sing stage show that's in the Japan park. I'd be more surprised if they don't replace it with something for younger kids to do.

That kid's playground area just seems so outdated with Fievel and Woody Woodpecker and previously Barney when they have so many DreamWorks movies that are kid friendly and would definitely draw more attention than what's there now.
