We’re Going Beyond the Bayou for Mardi Gras!

What’s even more exciting than Mardi Gras? Universal’s Mardi Gras! We’re going beyond the bayou with an awesome party inspired by Carnaval celebrations from around the world. Watch a parade (on select nights) of spectacular floats. Sample flavors from the bayou to Brazil and beyond. Enjoy live music all around and concerts (on select nights), then go ahead and get your beads and your party on!

Prices, times, dates, entertainment, event and/or experience details are subject to changes and/or cancellation without notice.

Daytime and Nighttime Fun at Universal Studios Florida

At Universal’s Mardi Gras you’ll enjoy a glittering parade and some of the biggest names in music live in concert (both select nights only), along with unforgettable food from around the world (food available for purchase).

Don’t Miss the Spectacular Parade

The dazzling floats will be rolling, the colorful performers will be moving to the beat, and the beads will be flying. This year’s parade features traditional floats plus six all-new floats straight from New Orleans and the party will bounce!

Float Riding
You haven’t experienced Mardi Gras until you’ve experienced it from atop one of our spectacular floats. Toss beads to the crowd while you make your way through the streets for an unforgettable time. A limited number of spots are available per night.

Reservations will be accepted in-park via the Virtual Line™ experience in the Official Universal Orlando App.

Note: There is no Mardi Gras parade on March 31.
