Now that Springfield is completed (although still in Previews) and Fast and Furious is pretty much done (we'll still have opening festivities in June),most of our Universal Hollywood Updates will now be moving over to what's coming in 2016.
And obviously this change is going to be huge.

A look through the Arch
By the time the park opened at 9:00am, it was clear that they'd already been working for a couple of hours.
Hogwarts is starting to receive it's rock-work.
Looks like they are doing it in layers to give it that forced perspective look.
The trees they planted a few weeks ago are already starting to come in nicely.
A close up on the area of Hogsmeade they are working on most now.
They are starting to work on Hippogriff as well.

Just a couple of things going on around the park. Pinks has been closed and is now "Plaza Grill".
Although some remnants of Pinks remain. =)
Statue guy is the best.
Not really much to report on here.
Outside, work on the parking structure is continuing and they were planting some new palm trees around the new entrance area.
Alright, that's going to wrap it up for this update. We'll have more from Universal Studios in a couple of weeks as the official opening of Springfield approaches.
Have a great week everybody!!
