This weekend Universal Orlando will transform into one of the biggest celebrations they offer! That’s right, it’s time again for Mardi Gras at Universal Studios Orlando! Mardi Gras, which is included in the price of admission, will fill the streets of Universal Orlando with a parade, great food, beautiful costumes and of course world class music! Universal Orlando’s 2015 Mardi Gras celebration begins this Saturday, February 7, featuring a live performance by Australian singer-songwriter Olivia Newton-John.
