Mardi Gras 2019 | Inside Universal Forums
  • As the Coronavirus pandemic continues to impact everywhere, we understand our users will have a lot of questions about how it affects the theme parks. We are entering unprecedented waters, and honestly, the answer is either "yea, probably", or "Too early to tell". We just don't know specifics until the theme parks give us an answer. At this time, we're asking to please leave the COVID talk to the appropriate COVID threads, and if something officially and specifically is impacted by a closure, then we can discuss it further in the respective threads. Thank you!

We decided to film the parade a little differently, and got a little artsy fartsy.


Also, our guide has been updated with more information on food & drink (lanyard, boil, etc) and the full concert line-up

Nice. Thanks Brian.

Curious here:

“15 items lanyard for $60 – Passholder Exclusive!

Only items designated with a special Universal globe icon are part of the deal. Alcohol is included but comes in a 9oz tasting glass. Water and sodas are also included in the lanyard. You can rollover unused items during any Mardi Gras day, and it can be reloaded until 4/4. Any unused value does not expire, so you can purchase snacks including soft pretzels, popcorn, and bottled water during normal hours”

Regarding the other snacks, is that anything that could be considered a “snack” on the regular dining plan? Like a giant Simpsons donut, ice cream or Butterbeer, for example (as the highest price option)?

The only snacks that we have confirmed are the 3 we listed. Dining Snacks are not a part of it.

Can I ask- was the info part of what Universal gave to you via media or did you actually test them on your own just on a whim?

Not much for reports here. It's like half way through? The local members not attending? I sure had fun last year. Ziggy would be good.

Heck, sometimes I think many of the people posting, never, or rarely, steps foot in the parks. Or, if they do, it's only a day or two over the course of years. Many seem to visit vicariously through You Tube videos. It always feels good to hear someones' story that actually experienced what they were talking about.

This was the crowd to see Pitbull past night from our view on the float.
I stood with some friends near the French Quarter listening/watching off the screen. The crowd was completely backed up to that point along with us. I've on ever seen crowds this large for Kelly Clarkson and Fall Out Boy at a Mardi Gras Concert.
