New props have been added to the first room of the Holiday Tribute Store at Universal Studios Florida hinting at the theme of next year’s Mardi Gras Tribute Store.

There’s a decrepit rusted box on the counter of the first room, with plants around it and several brochures below it.

The box is decorated with stickers. On the top, a sticker mentions P.S. Songbird.

Another sticker is for the “Anna Marie Hotel” in New Orleans. The hotel matches the buildings for the Hollywood tribute store location, with the right side of the building matching the former Williams of Hollywood facade.

The third sticker references Yeti: Campground Kills, a house at Halloween Horror Nights this past year. The Yeti’s silhouette is just barely visible above.

The sticker mentions Shadow Creek State Park, which was the house’s setting.

The brochures on the table reference P.S. Songbird again. It’s apparently a New Orleans riverboat sailing down the Mississippi River.

The brochure advertises “Tribute River Cruises,” a two-month “party that never ends with only the best food and drink money can buy!”

Mardi Gras: International Flavors of Carnaval will run from February 3, 2024, through April 7, 2024. Read our full guide to last year’s event for an idea of what to expect.
