    It's a nice tribute. Shows this isn't the Universal we knew under Blackstone and the many other companies during the "dark" ages.

    For now, it's about as good of a place as any at UOR.

    I imagine DWA will find a home in the future third park, but right now there isn't really one for them at USF, so using that courtyard area which is normally pretty empty is a good idea. Keeps people off the street and it's also on the way to Kidzone so it gives families with young children something extra to do on their way.

    It looks like ww2.universalorlando.com is the new website and Universal Orlando® Resort | Your Orlando Vacation Destination is the old website. It's probably still in beta.

    Love the new design, hate how they haven't updated the vacation + hotel booking tool. It's ugly, difficult to use, and totally separate from the rest of the site. Disney has done a phenomenal job with their website + booking experience. I can't think of a travel website anywhere that's as pleasant as theirs.

    I think they need to get rid of the user reviews on the new website. I think leaving the basic x out of 5 star rating from TripAdvisor is fine, but I've seen a few less than positive reviews and I highly doubt that Universal wants less than positive reviews on their own website, a place they should be controlling the narrative completely.

    I'd think that's staging area for it to go up at Aventura.
