The Mardi Gras parade at Universal Studios Florida is the centerpiece of Universal’s Mardi Gras event. But what’s better than watching the parade, is being in it. Riding in the parade is one of the most fun things that there is to do at Universal. Thousands of guests will be cheering at you as you throw them beads, it creates a unique thrill. Riding in the parade is a very easy thing to do. Let’s take a look at how you can be in the parade:
1) Register in advance as a Universal Orlando Annual Pass Holder through the pass holder website.
2) Standby Line- Arrive to the Barney Courtyard in Woody Woodpecker’s Kidzone at Universal Studios Florida at 5pm and wait in the standby line. If you arrive at 5pm you will be waiting for an hour but you are basically guaranteed a spot in the parade for that night. This is the only other reliable way to get a spot in the parade besides registering I advance.
