Those celebrating can expect the return of star-studded, live concerts, colorful nighttime parades filled with authentic floats, and more.

No Mardi Gras would be complete without authentic, Cajun-style eats from New Orleans. In addition, there will be international flavors represented to ring in the carnival.


Admission to the event is included with tickets purchased from Universal Orlando, but blackouts dates still apply.

More details on the concert lineup, food and drinks will be announced later on.
