    So to make us make more money cut things that would bring people in or have them stay?

    If we got new alternatives then I'm sure most would be fine with it but we are just losing 4 shows. The Grinch area that for hours would have entertainment is now just gone. If we got say a show in Simpsons or Potter land instead their would be a discussion this is down to somehow te higher ups think too much money is being spent so cut cut cut.....we as ticket holders see zero benefits. The company in no way is close to shutting down so even if they are over budget on Jurassic the only people who are going to see this cut money are people with pills of money anyway, which at least for me I'm not seeing as a positive.

    I was under the impression they had JUST upgraded the previous tree, which looked great, so I'm a little lost why they bothered to spend money on yet another one... only to cut a bunch of other entertainment.

    I'm glad the walk-around characters weren't cut, as I assumed they'd go first. They're all fantastic.

    Is it true that they got rid of the snow fall in Hogsmeade?

    ^Yes. Although if you ask me, while the thought was nice, the execution was off... the snow never really fell in ideal locations (instead typically landing on the roofs of buildings before it ever got to the ground), as well as felt slightly redundant with the snow at nearby Grinchmas. So personally, I don't miss it much.

    Evidently, the Grinch stole Universal Hollywood's Holidays for real. ;)

    CityWalk holiday entertainment also got cut. It's a shame. If you're ever asked to do an in-park survey. It's best to let them know that these cutbacks are noticeable and bad.

    Right... but it still has an entertainment budget and it was still slashed.

    Not part of the park, sure. However, Citywalk is not excluded of that of budgets for everything, including events. If anything, it makes me..a bit nervous to know what might be getting cut from EvE for 2019, but I digress.

    Change the thread's titled to the animated film, "The Year Without a Santa Claus". Shame on Hollywood's management.
