There might be a party going on in Universal Orlando Resort in the form of Mardi Gras, but that doesn’t mean everyone was happy on Sunday.
Guests who were walking through Universal’s CityWalk security entrance and making their way across the moving walkway towards Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios Florida on Sunday morning were shocked to see a car in the Valet Parking Area across from the entrance set ablaze.
