Nice review. It's great to see Universal getting such enthusiastic responses to their expanded Holiday offerings. I don't remember you using the word Wow much in past reviews. As you alluded to in your review, it seemed like Universal was just doing the minimum in their past holiday offerings. Universal seemed to have ceded Christmas to Disney, and was content with owning Halloween (HHN). Universal was leaving money on the table by not having a stronger holiday line up. But from what I can see & read, this seems to be a quantum leap and a challenge to WDW. And, as I've stated before, I've booked a ten night early December 2018 stay at Portofino to experience this personally. I think a lot of other tourists will do the same.We review the new offerings, plus a lot of photos and videos.
