Mardi Gras at Universal Studios is a wonderful event for people of all ages. There is even a special parade viewing area just for children, which opens an hour before the parade starts (Little Jester’s Parade Viewing Area).
If you want to attend the concerts that will take place at Universal Studios and be close to the stage, make sure you get there at least two hours before the concert starts. After listening to some great music, continue the party at CityWalk!
Mardi Gras at Universal Studios is included with a normal park ticket, you do NOT have to pay extra for it. Mardi Gras takes place in the Universal Studios Florida park, not Islands of Adventure. See you there!
