Universal Orlando Resort is currently in the midst of celebrating its biggest party of the year.
Universal’s Mardi Gras celebration began in February and runs through April 24. The event features all kinds of fun experiences like concerts, parades, unique dishes, and much more.
As Guests have been getting their party on, it seems one Universal Orlando Resort Guest may have hilariously gone a little too far.
On a recent Reddit thread, User U/brewgirl68 shared an experience that they certainly won’t forget anytime soon.
“I was at Universal’s Mardi Gras today,” the user said. “There was maybe a 65-year-old lady showing her boobs to get beads. Every single float, another flash. At least she had a bra on, but still.”
Of course, Universal Orlando Resort’s Mardi Gras celebration is a family-friendly event and the uniqueness of the event is certainly something that Guests have really come to enjoy. This kind of conduct is not allowed in the Universal Parks.
Universal Orlando’s full policy for entry can be found here. Here’s what the policy says about clothing:
Clothing likely to create a danger, incite a disturbance or displaying offensive language or content is not prohibited. Any other items Universal personnel deem to be inappropriate, disruptive or harmful are not allowed.
