Mardi Gras at Universal

02/16/2011  | 

Orlando, Fla. (January 13, 2011) — It is the biggest, best, party in the country — and Universal Orlando Resort brings it straight from New Orleans to you Feb. 12 - April 23.

Nationally renowned musical acts combine with an authentic Mardi Gras parade, dozens of colorfully costumed performers, authentic Cajun cooking, and hand-picked New Orleans bands to capture the look, feel and fun of New Orleans — all inside Universal Studios Florida. Universal Orlando has been creating its special Mardi Gras celebration for more than 15 years — bringing the perfect combination of the Big Easy and spectacular theme park entertainment to its guests all for the price of regular admission.

This year’s special Mardi Gras concert line-up features some of the biggest names in Rock, Country, Pop and R&B. Together, the headliners have had more than 100 songs on Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart and more than 20 Grammy nominations. Performers include Pitbull, also known as “Mr. 305,” who will perform songs from his hit album, “Rebelution,” Neon Trees, who will perform their hit “Animal,” One Republic and country-super-star Blake Shelton. Also performing will be Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Beach Boys and Ne-Yo.

There are many ways to enjoy your Orlando vacation — but there is only one Universal Orlando Resort. It is a completely separate destination featuring two theme parks, three magnificently themed on-site hotels and a nighttime entertainment complex. It’s the only Orlando destination where you are not just entertained — you are part of the most exhilarating entertainment ever created. You can soar above Hogwarts with Harry Potter, swing above the streets with Spider-Man, battle aliens alongside Agent J, and help Shrek save Princess Fiona in Shrek 4-D.

You can be courageous, be outrageous — and be extraordinary.
