Insider’s Guide to Florida Mardi Gras 2019

Insider’s Guide to Florida Mardi Gras 2019


Every year the bold and the beautiful flock to Orlando, Florida to celebrate Mardi Gras. This Spring, visitors get to shake a tail feather as Universal Studios Orlando transforms into an explosion of colorful parades, concerts and ‘N’awlins’ style food and spirits.


Taking place from February 9thto April 4th, all festivities are included with theme park admission and annual passes. Witness outrageous street performers and chow down on authentic Cajun food, while listening to live New Orleans bands.


The Parades


Using the same float company as the original Mardi Gras, the parades take place every night, rain or shine, throughout the festival. They begin at the Hollywood Area in Universal Studios. Mardi Gras at Universal Orlando™ is designed to be family friendly, and includes a special parade viewing area just for children. The parades are around twenty minutes in length.


The Concerts


The concerts take place on the Music Plaza stage in Universal Studios, beside Despicable Me Minion Mayhem®. On selected nights you can catch some amazing R&B, Pop, Rock and Country acts, including Bush, playing on Feb 9th , Macklemore on Feb 23rdand Sean Paul on March 10th. Concerts are mostly standing room only and there is no separate VIP area. Get there super early if you want to be near the front!


Food and Music


This year’s French Quarter Courtyard sees Universal Orlando mimic ‘The Big Easy’, with sweet soul music from the South and Cajun and Creole bites, not forgetting Jambalaya, a favorite dish of the Bayou.
