With “Mardi Gras 2021: International Flavors of Carnaval” set to kick off this weekend at Universal Orlando, the resort shared a first look inside the event’s tribute store today.

  • The video, which can be seen below, features several themed rooms that tie in with this year’s event as well as some of the special merchandise guests will be able to pick up to commemorate their visit.
  • We first saw the facade for the store last week, as well as more decor around the park for the upcoming annual event.
  • The Tribute Store will be similar to what has been done for Halloween and Christmas events in 2020 with merchandise and more inside the themed area.
