Yeah…it might be a little far out, but I can hardly contain my excitement. It’s never too early to start planning your trip down the Bayou to celebrate Mardi Gras at Universal Orlando Resort. This year, Florida’s biggest party will take place every night from Feb. 3 through April 7 in 2018.

In addition to the longest celebration we’ve held, there will be an abundance of concerts on select nights. These concerts will feature some of the biggest names in music. But if you still want more, be sure to check out the live performances from New Orleans every night in the French Quarter Courtyard.

Universal's Mardi Gras returns in 2018 with concerts by the biggest names in music.

And you won’t want to miss the nightly Mardi Gras parade when it rolls down the streets of Universal Studios Florida every night. This dazzling parade features colorful floats, performers, lights, feathers, glitter, beads, and more!

Universal's Mardi Gras parade will run nightly in 2018.

Did we mention beads? I can guarantee there will be a ton of those. You won’t want to miss out on collecting as many as you can, although you will never have me beat!

So for you Kings, Queens, maids, and dukes, it’s almost time to start gathering up your closest friends and preparing those taste buds for the finest Cajun food east of the French Quarter. Next year’s Mardi Gras celebration will be here before we know it. With more nights to party on and concerts to see, the good times will surely be rolling.

Universal's Mardi Gras returns in 2018 with the French Quarter Courtyard.
