    You have to check the Universal ride app weekly to find out what parts of the garage walks and escalators are working. Changes on a daily basis.

    I see that it is 1:30 am on HHN night 19, you are parked in JP 505... It would be a shame if we turned off all the up escalators wouldn't it. Don't worry we'll leave the ones going down on.

    I understand idiot kids like to hit the stop button. But does no one in the entire area know how to restart one?

    Another victim of budget cuts: unfinished bathrooms.

    Is this a permanent or temporary restroom?

    That's shockingly subpar.

    Yikes. No bueno.

    While I'm here, streetmo actors we're cut from Flower and Garden this year. It might not be noticed by many, but it hasn't escaped my eye.

    Did Universal pick any of them up? ...I believe they hired a few ex DHS Streetmosphere actors previously.

    The street performers at Universal have been noticeably better recently.

    Some have been employed by both for years. Talent is shared between the parks on a level many can will never know.

    The ones at Seuss Landing, during Christmas, were amazing, and very entertaining. Some really good street skits and routines as the Who's from Grinchmas. It was hard for us to leave Seuss Landing since the entertainment was non stop, close up, and so much fun. Probably one reason Seuss Landing had Hogsmeade type street crowds, and it was the slow season even.

    But I remember the days that they never would have put an unfinished restroom onstage.....

    Exactly. They shouldn't have been accessible to the public until they were completely finished.

    Jokes aside, I wouldn’t be surprised... Disney doesn’t do long-term contracts with their WS entertainment anymore. They hire with contracts of only months at a time or weeks.

    It does actually help in keeping the entertainment fresh rather than seeing the same acts over and over again.

    They also want to avoid another Off-Kilter scenario. Where the band developed their own crazy rabid fan base.
