Fun to see floats and props. Not sure if it was because it was Monday - but was disappointed not to see more “working activity”.

There is a little video at the beginning that is very helpful in explaining things. It was cute that they gave a little piece of kings cake. Be aware it’s a self guided tour through an active workshop. I liked looking at all the past creations. Main downside was parking fee of $20. Even though I live in the area I might take advantage of the shuttle if I went again.

The whole family had a great time at Mardi Gras World. We took the free shuttle which was prompt and convenient. The tour started with a piece of king cake and a short interesting movie about the history of Mardi Gras. Because of covid it is now a self guided tour and I honestly liked just wandering around myself. Be sure to buy an “adult “ juice box from the gift shop to walk around with.

Mardi World was ok. Warehouse full of props and floats. No tour. Parking was an additional $20.00 which we thought was overpriced. $20.00 for 1 hour In a self guided warehouse! Still enjoyed seeing visiting. Unfortunately the roof was leaking the entire time we were there.

The parking at MarfiGras World is $20.00 and there is no tour. Wander around on your own to look at props for floats. It’s ok to do that, but would have liked a tour.

We really enjoyed our experience (which was our second trip to Mardi Gras World). The free shuttle from our hotel was nice, plus the complimentary piece of king cake was delicious. The fact that it was a self-guided tour is the main reason I am giving it a four-star rating because I thought it took away from the experience. All in all, though, it was a memorable experience with a lot of photo ops!
