Mardi Gras at Universal Studios

I'm playing a bit of catch up (once again), as we have been dealing with a household of sickness. Poor Lil' Miss had a nasty cold for almost 2 weeks, and finally seemed to turn the corner to then come down with a stomach illness (the WORST) which also lasted several days. H and I seemed to have caught the head and chest cold, but thankfully seemed to have dodged the nasty stuff. After having food poisoning at the end of December, I am extremely thankful not to be dealing with stomach related illness again. 

Thankfully, before the germs hit our home we were able to enjoy Mardi Gras at Universal Studios. I had never experienced it before, so it was a lot of fun to try the food from different country booths from around the world (and of course King Cake!), watch the parade (Lil' Miss was excited to catch a lot of beads having no idea how it works in New Orleans - ha!) and then we enjoyed the Goo Goo Dolls concert at the end of the evening. Food, drinks, rollercoasters, fun parade AND a concert? Yes please! 

Where else can you watch a concert with Rip Ride Rockit in the background? Now I need to ride it at night which looks like a lot more fun than in the daytime. Have you ever been to Mardis Gras whether it be in New Orleans or at Universal Studios?
