Universal is really hoping you'll skip the drive to New Orleans this year for Mardi Gras.  

From Feb. 6 through April 16, Universal Studios Florida will offer guests a family-friendly series of events that includes 1.7 million beads, "dazzling" nightly parades, authentic Cajun cuisine and 14 concerts that include acts like Diana Ross, Fall Out Boy, Barenaked Ladies, 3 Doors Down, Kool and the Gang, Adam Lambert and T-Pain. You can view the full lineup here



The 2016 Mardi Gras parties are included with regular admission to parks. However, CityWalk will also be hosting New Orleans-themed events for the over-21 crowd.
