    Might as well start this now.


    From the most recent Photo Update from Inside Universal; preparation is already beginning for this year's show, with Christmas lighting already starting to come up for Universal Blvd, Minion Way, the Lower Lot and French Street.

    I wonder if they will eventually change the aesthetic to match the upcoming Grinch movie next year, or possibly even change the theme to Rudolph anytime soon due to the recent Dreamworks acquisition.

    I believe that the upcoming Grinch Adaptation has been delayed a year..and if SWO is like anything; don't expect to see Rudolph anytime soon.

    Some days over December, USH closes early like 7pm. Will the lights be on by then ?


    Sorry, I am from abroad, and it gets dark only by 7.45pm over here in this part of the world.

    I would love to see them decorate the Potter land for Christmas but as far as I know they've never done that in Orlando, have they? Seems like a missed opportunity to make it look really amazing for the season.

    For what it's worth, there have been multiple rumors that Orlando would get some Holiday festivities for this year as Japan has been celebrating the holidays in Hogsmeade as well.

    When I was at USF years back, they had a Macy's parade.

    They haven't offered any sort of holiday parade for the park (which I assume is due to that it'd take too much space when the park lacks space as it is).

    Grinchmas will start on December third as it will go from December third to the fourth, the tenth to the eleventh, and the sixteenth to January first.

    No parade but what's the special events and activities?
