Last weekend we were privileged to be invited out to the Universal Studios Hollywood Christmas in Spring Event.
This annual event is a great opportunity for some community outreach and was a great event for everybody. Be sure to check out video and photos from the event.
As part of its annual “Christmas in Spring” community outreach event, hundreds of Universal Studios Hollywood employee volunteers will come together in partnership with M.E.N.D. (Meet Each Need with Dignity) to bring goodwill to 1,000 guests, including families, in need.
Celebrating its 27th year, “Christmas in Spring” has touched the lives of over 16,000 family members living in poverty in the San Fernando Valley, providing them with holiday cheer during a time of year when their needs are often overlooked.

Today we're back with our first Universal Studios Hollywood update in FAR too long. Just a few things this update to update on as we all wait for the next major attraction to be announced for the park.
We had an amazing time of course, it was a bit busier than we expected but because we're early birds we got everything done. Enjoy!!

Best Kong ever!!
As you can see it was a beautiful spring day
Some awesome Kung Fun Panda artwork has been added just beyond New York Street
Coming soon, as in June 15th!!
Chills ... every.time.
Studio Tour was great as always. Noticed a few enhanced effects on Earthquake (haven't seen it since it was down for rehab last year" and some script changes on Fast and Furious. As well as the lack of talking about it until you enter the garage.
Anybody know if this matches Orlando now?
They were doing a LOT of work on the Escalators and some work on the first "landing" as well.
The single rider line for Mummy was probably about 30 minutes. Had NEVER seen it that long.
Transformers was a much more manageable 10 minute single rider line
We also checked out the always fun Special Effects Show
It was a very busy day, but we had an amazing time as always
Our next update will likely be for the opening of Kung Fu Panda
Today Renee headed over to Universal Orlando Resort to check out the all new Fast and Furious Supercharged.
Below you'll see the queue, the set-up and a bit about the ride itself.

Today we had the chance to check out the new Fast and Furious Supercharged ride at Universal Orlando. The queue is awesome!
If you’re a fan of the Fast and Furious series (and even if you’re not!), you’ll enjoy all of the cool details in the ride queue.
There is a preshow with live actors before boarding. The ride itself is fine, nothing groundbreaking, and similar to the Hollywood version, minus the 3D.
