All we can say is wow what a night at Universal Orlando. We attended the special after hours Mardi Gras party last night and it was just so incredible. Access to the party as we stated in our previous article was through the new Token Experience exclusive to passholders that were randomly selected back in January and earned their way in. This exclusive party was limited to 300 people total 150 passholders and a plus one. The My Day Token was talked about so much and was definitely worth the 75 points we paid to get in.
The Mardi Gras party was held in the French Quarter area of the park. We got to experience all of the food tents in the French Quarter and as you know it was so delicious. We got to experience everything from the famous King Cake, Twisted Taters, Maple Candied Bacon, Beignets, and much much more. We were definitely stuffed but there is always room for one more Beignet.
The floats were parked in the streets and it was awesome to be that up close to them. There were tons of performers to interact and take photos with. If you love beads as much as we do there were tons of them all over. Scooby and the rest of Mystery Inc. were also available for a photo op. You could also get your thrills on with Revenge of the Mummy. It was open with no wait all night. The Mardi Gras Band kept us going with live tunes. The atmosphere and team members were electric and so thankful to all of us passholders.
With it being such a limited event it was perfect for making memories with Baby Chance. All of the team members were so interactive with her and even gave her as we call them now baby beads. One of the performers even made her own star beads for her. It was definitely nice to get to know some of the team members and to be able to just have conversations about everything from Mardi Gras to HHN.
In closing it was just an incredible night of Mardi Gras fun and yet another reason for being an Annual Passholder. We look forward to seeing more of these great experiences in the future and hope Universal expands on them. All of the Universal Team Members deserve the biggest UO Fistbump for giving us the most incredible night. See you all in the parks!!
