Mardi Gras is right around the corner and there’s plenty of beads, concerts, and food to look forward to at Universal Orlando. Last year, we ate and drank our way through multiple food booths at Universal Studios Florida with the assistance of the Tasting Lanyard. This year, the tasting lanyard will not be available, but there are still two great options to get the biggest bang for your buck. If you’re looking to save money and enjoy all Mardi Gras has to offer, this card is for you!

Guests can purchase discounted food and beverage cards to save money while enjoying the specialty food and beverage for the Mardi Gras celebration. There are two different cards to choose from.


For $65, guests can purchase a food and beverage card valued at $75. For $120, guests can purchase a card valued at $150. These cards work for purchases made at Mardi Gras kiosks and at all Universal Orlando owned and operated restaurants and carts. These cards can be applied towards the purchase of food, alcoholic drinks, and non-alcoholic drinks. Any discounts, such as Premier of Preferred Annual Passholders, can still be used for food and non-alcoholic drinks.


These discounted food and beverage cards can be purchased at any Mardi Gras food booth inside Universal Studios Florida from February 5 to April 24, 2022. These cards do not expire and there is no limit to how many can be purchased. Even if you’re not planning to eat very much during Mardi Gras, these cards can be used at any food location in CityWalk, Islands of Adventure, Volcano Bay, and Universal Studios Florida and never expire. It’s really hard to beat that kind of deal!

Even though many people were disappointed that there was no Tasting Lanyard available this year, these alternative discounted cards are a fantastic deal and great way to save money. To be able to purchase a discounted food card that can be used around the resort and never expires is a fantastic deal. There’s also no limit on purchasing these cards, so this might be a good time to stock up on cards for future trips. Add in the fact that you can apply your Passholder discount to the food, it’s easy to see that this card is the best way to go if you’re visiting Universal Orlando anytime soon. There are more than 50 items for Mardi Gras, so make sure you grab one of these discounted cards before you start enjoying all the delicious food and drinks around the resort. Happy Mardi Gras!
