Last week we were invited out to Universal Studios Hollywood for the official grand opening of their all new Hello Kitty Store. It looks whimsical and fun as you'll see below. Lots of great merchandise for all.
We'll also take a look at the recently opened Laemmle Court and a look at Dreamworks Theater construction.

We're getting down to it everybody, the big Christmas celebration is in less than a week. We hope you're getting those last minute preparations ready, it's probably the last day to order stuff on Amazon to get stuff delivered in time and the stores are gonna be packed with procrastinators.
OR ... you can just sit back with a nice cup of cocoa or peppermint mocha and enjoy this great update from the Holidays at Unviersal Orlando Resort.
