For Valentine's Day, we decided to hit Mardi Gras at Universal Orlando Resort. They had a concert with Jessie J and lots of Mardi Gras fun, including the amazing Mardi Gras parade. We ended the night with some good ole Louisiana cooking with a Po Boy and Beignet. YUM!

Universal Ticket with Shuttle Transfers: As we were leaving, there was a huge line (probably about 2-3 hours) for taxi pickup. I always recommend purchasing your Universal Tickets with the Shuttle Transfers added to the ticket. This shuttle pick up had NO line! You literally walked right onto the bus, while everyone else was waiting for hours for a taxi. Here is a link to DIF who sells this ticket options: http://tinyurl.com/przqahr

More About Universal Mardi Gras: With 16 concerts lighting up the stage; 1.8 million beads flying through the air; a wild and wonderful parade led by amazing, outrageous performers and great food" -- Mardi Gras is a Universal Orlando® tradition like no other.

Each night of Universal Orlando’s Mardi Gras, a different big-name headliner gets the party started—playing their biggest hits and favorite tunes live on stage.

Catch beads by the handful as our dazzling parade winds its way through the park with incredible floats and colorful street performers. Little ones will love it and our Little Jester’s parade viewing area was designed just for them.

The French Quarter Courtyard sizzles with authentic New Orleans cuisine and grooves with live music. Kick back with great tunes and tap your toes while you savor Big Easy favorites like Spicy Jambalaya, Grilled Andouille Sausage, Shrimp, Gumbo and more.
