Universal Mardi Gras

We have been talking of taking the kids for an Orlando vacation for a long time. You know, take a week and visit all the amusement parks at the same time. But then we start thinking of the logistics of getting that accomplished and we change our minds real quick. So now we're more of the mind set that maybe we ought to drag it out by taking in the parks one per year.

We're thinking maybe start out with Mardi Gras at the Universal Studios Orlando.
Discount Universal Tickets is surely a step in the right direction towards having a fun vacation. Universal Islands of Adventure has some of the best roller coasters in the country which is just perfect when you have teenagers who are wild for coasters like I do. They are also big Dr. Seuss fans so I know that a stop at Seuss landing will be on the itinerary, probably in between the wild coaster rides. At Islands Adventure, paleontology buffs can also get their thrills at Jurassic Park River Adventure where they can go on an unforgettable river raft ride.

At the Universal Studios Park, it's all about the movies. We can re-live the movie experience by visiting attractions such as Shrek in 4D, Men in Black, The Simpsons, the E.T. Adventure, and much more. While the kids are soaking up the adventures, I think my husband and I would rather spend our time celebrating Mardi Gras. You heard me, celebrate Mardi Gras at the Universal Studios Orlando by catching one of the fabulous concerts on their line up of amazing entertainers. Lined up, for the Mardi Gras music at Universal are names like: MC Hammer, Kelly Clarkson, Trace Adkins, Nelly and more.

The best deal to be had, if you're planning on visiting Universal Studios Orlando is to get the unlimited park admission to two parks: Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. The ticket is good for seven days, so you can take your time exploring both parks and won't feel like you have to see everything in one day.
