Mardi Gras has been known to be one of America's best kept traditions. Mardi Gras became famous by being one big party full of costumes, fun, and celebration. Unfortunately it is not a family-friendly, and safe venue...so Universal Orlando Resort has a Mardi Gras that is good clean fun for everyone! Universal Orlando Resort's Mardi Gras celebration at Universal Orlando goes on from February 2, 2008 through April 19. Experience the spirit of Fat Tuesday with the 13 beautifully decorated floats straight out of the Big Easy along with constumes, the spicy goodness of cajun cuisine, and live music from Nola jazz bands. Come on down to Orlando for a Mardi Gras for everyone and have your friends at Kissimmee Guest Services show you the way!
