Performance Trip

Friday night football games- check. Regional marching band festivals- check. Local parade routes, check. What’s left for the marching band? An incredible STARS Performance at Universal Orlando Resort of course!

When you’re looking for an amazing way to highlight phenomenal, dedicated, and talented performers, the STARS Performance Program hits every high note. Take to the streets of Universal Studios Florida for a thrilling, mile-long procession through crowds of cheering theme park guests. Couple the electrifying experience of marching with the energy and excitement of world-class rides and entertainment.

Here’s a snapshot of what you need to know before you go…

Marching Options

The Universal’s Superstar Pre-Parade opportunity is available year-round and showcases your talented marching band as Universal Studios performers for the day

During select dates from November through January, your band can apply to perform in the Holiday Parade featuring Macy’s Pre-Parade, warming up the crowd for the merriest of marches

Minimum Ticket Requirement

Minimum of 40 tickets (non-Florida groups: multi-day park-to-park admission tickets required and Florida groups: park-to-park admission tickets required)

Required Participant Age

Performances are open to youth of all ages

Application Fee

None (that’s refreshing!)


Program requests must be submitted at least 6 weeks prior to performance date. Applications will be processed 2-3 weeks after receipt. Cancellations must be received in writing 3 weeks prior to scheduled arrival at Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Orlando reserves the right to postpone or cancel a STARS program based on weather conditions


Minimum of 40 performers (ideally 5 across, not to exceed 6)
