Dustin Fuhs & Jim Hill start off this episode by talking about the bozos who put a damper on Universal Orlando's most recent passholder appreciation night. Jim also details the sort of theme park that Universal originally wanted to build in Florida when they first revealed their plans for this project back in July of 1981


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

Whether it’s smarter to spring for a two park seasonal pass to the Universal Orlando parks or the new three park multi-day pass that this Resort recently put on sale

Why you should expect to do a lot of walking if you’re planning on using Uber & Lyft the next time you visit Universal Studios Florida or Universal’s Islands of Adventure

How you’re going to need a ticket to this year’s Halloween Horror Nights if you want to see USF’s new “Marathon of Mayhem” nighttime lagoon show

How “Hobbs & Shaw” ‘s opening weekend in China made it that much more likely that Universal Pictures will be producing a sequel to this “Fast & Furious” spin-off

Why Epcot’s slow start back in late 1982 / early 1983 made Universal decide to push back the proposed opening date for its Florida theme park (which was originally opened in the Summer of 1984)
