Universal chefs have created new food and drink options and of course included some Big Easy staples – that includes beignets (hot and fresh!), frog legs, crab etouffee, and crawfish where you’re supposed to suck the juice out of the head – oh boy! There’s also a signature Mardi Gras cocktail and of course some great craft beer.
