This year’s Mardi Gras Tribute Store facade has been completed at Universal Studios Florida. New details have gone up since our last update, giving us a better idea of the theme we can expect for this year’s event. Get ready to board the P.S. Songbird for a river cruise!

The store will be located in the Hollywood section of the park and will be set up a little differently this time around. The entrance and exit have been swapped, with extra signage pointing guests towards the new entrance. Guests will enter on the Williams of Hollywood side of the building, next to Mel’s Drive-In.

A sign with a paddlewheel says “Port Entrance” with an arrow directing guests towards the new entrance.

Flyers have been added around the entrance, including several that invite guests to enjoy a journey along the Mississippi River on the P.S. Songbird. Entering the store will be like boarding the riverboat, so we can’t wait to see what’s inside.

A sign for “Tribute Store & River Cruises” has been added just above the “ramp” to board the riverboat.

Several large crates have been stacked around the exit of the Tribute Store to keep guests from entering on the wrong side. The Studio Styles side has been the entrance for all of the previous Tribute Stores in this location, so there seems to be a lot of signage to help redirect guests to the new entry point.
