It’s that time of year! Universal Orlando’s Mardi Gras is days away! We are so excited for the return of this amazing event this year! Now is the perfect time to take a look at all of the food and beverage items that you can look forward to enjoying at this year’s event! You can anticipate many wonderful Cajun dishes and several delicious signature drinks from Universal’s Mardi Gras! You can look forward to enjoying both new and returning favorites daily in the French Quarter Courtyard which can be found in the New York area of Universal Studios Florida starting at 4 p.m. from Feb. 9 – April 4.
A change that is brand new this year, all food and beverage items will be served in smaller tasting sizes. This is so exciting because smaller portions means a chance to try a taste of EVERYTHING. Let’s take a closer look at a few of the items you can enjoy!
