Universal Orlando Resort has just dropped a ton of news for Mardi Gras: International Flavors of Carnaval 2024! Universal Orlando Annual Passholders can celebrate Mardi Gras with some brand new benefits, including a new UOAP magnet, starting February 3. Feet don’t fail me now!
Universal Orlando Annual Passholder Magnet
Universal Orlando Annual Passholders can pick up their complimentary magnet starting February 3, while supplies last. The magnet will be available from the UOAP Lounge in Toon Lagoon in Universal Islands of Adventure during operating hours and at the Five and Dime in Universal Studios Florida from park open to park close.
The art for the magnet features a bowl of noodles for the U, a coin for the O, an A wearing a crown and bead necklace, and a crayfish for the P.
Discounted Food and Beverage Card
All guests visiting Universal Orlando during Mardi Gras can purchase a discounted food and beverage card, but Passholders get an even bigger discount! Passholders save $30 with a limited-time offer on the Universal Orlando Resort Food and Beverage Card. The card retails for $120, but holds a$150 value! Premier and Preferred Passholders will also receive their respective discounts with a valid Annual Pass on food and beverage (excluding alcohol) when paying with their Universal Orlando Resort Food and Beverage Card. These discounted cards can be purchased at the USF Reservation Cart (near TODAY Café), USF Front Gate, Mel’s Drive-In, Louie’s Italian Restaurant, Richter’s Burger Co. and all Mardi Gras 2024 kiosk locations.
