This year got the opportunity to spend St. Patrick’s Day at Universal Orlando Resort, this is something I haven’t done before because living in Orlando I avoid going to the parks during Spring Break, just being 100% honest here.

This year, Universal Orlando Resort invited me to check their St. Patrick’s Day offerings so this seems like the perfect opportunity. Springs Break at a theme park, here I come!!!

Esse ano eu resolvi passar o St. Patrick’s Day no Universal Orlando Resort. Isso é uma coisa que eu nunca tinha feito porque o St. Patrick’s Day cai no Spring Break e eu evito parque porque geralmente estão mais cheios do que o normal.

Bom foi aí que veio um convite da Universal me chamando para conferir como eles celebram o St. Patricks Day por lá. Então Spring Break no parque ai vou eu!!!



Universal Orlando Resort has a lot going on this time of the year. It was St. Patrick’s Day, Spring Break and let’s not forget Mardi Gras is still being celebrated at the park! Not only that, but yesterday was also a concert night, Ziggy Marley was performing.

Neitherless to say that I was expecting to find the park extremely crowded, but to my surprise, it wasn’t bad at all! Of course, it was busy, but wait times were very similar to what I’ve seen before.

Harry Potter and the Escape of Gringotts had a 60 minutes wait time, which is average for that ride.  I’m a HUGE Harry Potter fan, and that’s my favorite ride in the park.

Não é apenas St. Patrick’s Day e Spring Break, ainda está rolando o Mardi Gras na Universal e no domingo também teve show do Ziggy Marley.

Com tanta coisa rolando em um só lugar eu esperava encontrar o parque lotado, difícil para andar com filas que assustam mas para a minha surpresa o parque está bem cheio mas definitivamente nada assustador.

Para ter uma idéia a fila para a taração Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts, aquela que fica no Beco Diagonal estava uma hora nada além do normal.

Essa é a minha atração favorita no parque inteiro, então para mim essa é a fila que importa.



If you are looking to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at Universal Orlando Resort here are some suggestions. 
Além de tudo o que o parque oferece, existem várias maneiras de celebrar o St. Patrick’s Day na Universal.



Finnegan’s is my go to bar at Universal Studios Florida, I’ve been going there for years especially on concert nights it became a tradition, but I have never been to the restaurant.

They serve tradicional irish cuisinne so it was definitely my pick for St. Patrick’s Day. I didn’t made a reservation so we waited for 30 minutes to be seated, not bad I was expecting to wait longer.

They had live music and almost everyone was sporting green attire, so it was perfect!

We decided to make a meal out of appetizers. We order the Misty Isle Potato & Leek Soup, Finnegan’s Potato & Onion Web, Scotch Eggs, Shrimp Scargot and green beer which I don’t recall the brand, but it was amber for sure since that’s my favorite type of beer.

O Finnegan’s é o meu bar favorito na Universal. Ano após ano ele virou uma tradição nos dias de shows do Mardi Gras mas eu nunca tinha ido no restaurante.

O Finnegan’s serve comida irlandesa e como a gente não fez reserva tivemos que esperar por 30 minutos, nada mal!

Eles tem música ao vivo e a maioria das pessoas estavam vestida para o St. Patrick’s Day!

A gente escolheu provar os pratos pequenos. Pedimos a sopa de batata (Misty Isle Potato &Leek Soup), batata e cebola frita (?Finnegan’s Potato & Onion Web), Ovos Escoceses (Scotch Eggs), camarão com queijo (Shrimp Scargot) e cerveja verde que eu não lembro a marca mas era do tipo “amber” vermelha.



At the upper level of CityWalk, you’ll find Pat O’Brien’s. If you don’t live in the U.S. and never heard of this bar before, this is a perfect replica of a famous bar in New Orleans.

Pat O’Brien’s is known for being the place that invented the Hurricane cocktail in the ’40s.

This is the BEST place to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at Universal Orlando Resort. It’s a mix of St. Patrick’s Day with Mardi Gras.

They close part os the street for a block party with DJ’s and a Celtic Band.

My favorite thing about Pat O’Brien’s is the fact that the bar has several different ambients, such as a dueling piano room, a small bar and an outdoor patio which is my favorite because it is so pretty and it has the flaming fountain.

You can choose what best fits your mood or do like I did and go back and forth between them.

Since it was St. Patrick’s Day, I decided to skip the traditional Hurricane drink for something a bit more festive. I chose de Fuzzy Leprechaun, a vodka cocktail with blue curacao, pineapple peach schnapps and orange juice. 

No segundo andar do CityWalk você encontra o Pat O’Brien’s, uma réplica do famoso bar com o mesmo nome em New Orleans.

O Pat O’Brien’s serve a culinária tipica de New Orlean’s e foi o lugar que invetou o famoso cocktail Hurricane.

Na Universal Orlando Resort o Pat O’Brien’s é o MELHOR lugar para celebrar o St. Patrick’s Day.

Eles fecham uma parte da rua colocam dj’s e uma banda céltica tocando!

O legal do Pat O’Brien’s é que ele tem diversos ambientes. Dentro do bar você encontra uma área com duelo de pianos, um bar fechado mais tranquilinho e o pátio ao ar livre, que é o meu espaço favorito.

Você pode alterar entre badalação e sossego sem sair do Pat O’Briens.

Como era St. Patrick’s Day eu troquei o tradicional Hurricane por um drink específico para a data, o Fuzzy Leprechaum, uma combinação de vodka, blue curaçao com suco de abacaxi, laranja e pêssego.

How do you guys celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?
