Mardi Gras Madness - A week at Universal - Feb 2020 - COMPLETE

Mardi Gras Madness - A week at Universal - Feb 2020

Welcome to my first and only 2020, no trilogy of reports planned this year but we are back in the summer, well we were meant to be!

Weíve been to Orlando a few times and Iíve written a food report for all my trips since 2013 and have managed 3 full trip reports. All my reports can be found here.

Cast
Me (46) Chief planner and obsessive Disney and Universal fan. I think I drive ds and dh to distraction with my constant call for family holiday planning meetings, however, they never complain when we get there and the plan works.


DH (48) Secret Disney and Universal fan. Loves it as much as me but canít be bothered with the planning.

DS (12) My apprentice! He prefers to Universal plan but loves to make a list. He is coming into that stage where Universal is way more cool than Disney and has just discovered the joy of rollercoasters.


On the way home last summer after we renewed our annual passes for Universal we got to talking about if there was a cheaper time of year we could come back for a short trip. We started looking at February, however, I wasn't very well for a bit after the summer so we had to wait to book due to crossing the renewal date for our travel insurance. By the time we booked prices had gone up so we ended up not booking with BA like we had planned but going with Aer Lingus.

We originally had a combination of hotels booked with the annual pass rates but we found a great deal on BA for a week at Aventura for £630 (hotel only) and we kept one night at RPR for $199 just in case we needed express passes.

I meant to write a pre trip report but I didnít get around to it as things have been not great in general life. Sadly, my aunt passed away suddenly at the start of January after being knocked over. Weíve been really sad and been doing all the organising for the funeral which was the week before our holiday so it just kind of crept up on us. It was totally what we needed though. We have also been kept busy as my aunt had a lovely, wee, 5-year-old dog which we have adopted, she is the sweetest thing and is firmly part of our little family now.

My friend generously agreed to dog sit for our holiday so she could remain in her own surroundings while we were away rather than unsettling her again.

Iíve already written a food report, here.
