What’s Ahead for Universal Orlando Resort in 2020

0

The past 10 years have brought a lot of growth and change to Universal Orlando Resort, and I’m proud to say I’ve been here through it all. I’ve joined you in experiencing new ground-breaking attractions and entertainment, new restaurants that are elevating theme-park dining, and annual events that keep getting bigger and better. Not to mention the opening of four new hotels and big game-changers to the theme park industry like Universal’s Volcano Bay and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

A decade has come to a close and I can write a novel on all the memories and happenings. But why reflect on the past when we have so much to look forward to? It’s time to start the next chapter for Universal Orlando Resort. Let’s kick it off with an epic year of new attractions, experiences, and celebrations.

I recently got a download on the details and from what I’ve heard and seen glances of, this show is going to make you say things like, “Wait! How’d they do that?” Read more here and stay tuned for more details.
