This year SeaWorld Orlando introduces a new element of celebration to Mardi Gras where guests are invited to become immersed in the vibrant flair of Brazil’s Carnaval. Explore the Brazilian Market, located along the Pipeline Pathway, where an all-new addition to the menu, Galinhada, awaits, along with the eagerly anticipated return of two reimagined fan-favorites: Picanha Steak and Pão de Queijo. Bring the party to life with exciting performances by traditional samba dancers and electrifying live music throughout the Brazilian market area.
