Dustin Fuhs & Jim Hill start off this week’s show by discussing the Universal Orlando Resort’s efforts to keep its plans for the Epic Universe project under wraps. They then talk about how the Universal Studios Hollywood version of the “Dark Arts at Hogwarts Castle” show differed from the version now being presented at Universal’s Islands of Adventure


Over the course of this episode, listeners will learn about:

What will the three parts of the expanded Universal Orlando campus be called

Why deferred attendance is something that genuinely worries officials at Disney Parks, Products & Experiences as well as executives at Universal Parks & Resorts

How Universal plans on borrowing from the Run Disney playbook when it comes to shoring up attendance levels at its onsite hotels during the slower times of year

Why – due to the increasingly competitive Southern California market – Universal Studios Hollywood has to do its Halloween Horror Nights a bit differently than Universal Studios Florida does

Why staging the very first “Universal Epic Character Race” on the exact same weekend that “Florida’s Biggest Party” gets underway at Universal Studios Florida may not be a dumb idea after all
