After not visiting the parks in two years, I’ve really got the itch to go back! Due to work, I was looking at times I could possibly go, and it would only be for a few days TH-Sun. However, upon looking at the dates, I’ve found out that Rock the Universe and Mardi Gras are on those days (The last weekend in January, or first weekend in February. Since I’ve never gone during this time, does it make a difference in what to expect at Universal? Is one weekend better than the other? Are these events after park close, or during the regular hours?
What I mean is, in the winter, it was decked out in decor and music, but other than that, it was the same as when I went in spring. I never went in fall because of HHN, and Diagon Alley being closed before I can go see it at nighttime. For the RtU or MG, what are things I should know before committing? Crowd wise, is one better than the other?
Can anyone who experienced any of these events provide feedback?
