1. Buy your tickets in advance. One overlook detail that most Guest seems to miss when purchasing products online is that it can take 24 hours to process. That means if you purchase your ticket online while walking in from CityWalk, you may not have a ticket by the time you reach the gate. Here's our recommendation to entering into the park with no issues. First, Guest should purchase their admission tickets online. This will save them from paying at-gate pricing, which can be up to $25 more expensive than the online price. It also keeps you out of the long lines of other people buying tickets. Secondly, you want to make you purchase your tickets 24 hours before your visit. This ensures that your tickets have been sent to you by email, or you can call Universal if you may have selected the wrong date to fix the issue. Thirdly, make sure you have picked the correct date before purchasing your tickets. The amount of people we see waiting in line at Guest Services because they picked the wrong Thursday is unbelievable. Pro Tip- Make sure you use the Universal Orlando website, not the Hollywood site when purchasing your HHN products.

With it being Fat Tuesday, we cannot go without talking about a classic. The French settlers brought beignets with them as they migrated to the eastern coast of Canada to an area called Acadia in the 17th century. Unfortunately, many Acadians were forced to migrate as the British came to control their area. As a result, many Arcadians settled in Louisiana. Their descendants became known as Cajuns. With their migration to the southern USA, they brought their culture, language,and cuisine. The mighty beignet continues to display that cuisine. During this time of year, you can find beignets in many places. Today, we are going to decide which beignets are better between the 2022 Universal Studios Florida Mardi Gras version in comparison to Disney’s Port Orleans Resort version.
