Many people have dreams of the perfect experience they want to have during their vacation! Have you ever dreamed about being on a TV show?! Well we have exciting news coming from the Universal Orlando Resort this week! CNBC has announced that their popular game show Deal or No Deal will be returning! The games show’s original host Howie Mandel will also be making a return! The exciting comeback will be filmed at Universal Orlando Resort! If you are familiar with the hit show you will know that contestants make high-stacks decisions when choosing which briefcase to open, the results of their choices will result in a chance of winning a fortune or losing it all. If you are like me, when I am watching the show I know I always envision myself in the place of the contests and imagine what choice I would make! Well if you have also shared this dream you may just have the shot at making it become a reality.

The game show is an hour in length, during the program a contestant selects one briefcase from an array of 26. Each briefcase holds a value from $.01 to $1,000,000. Throughout the game, the contestant eliminates cases and is occasionally presented with a “deal” from The Banker to take a cash amount to end that game.

Legendary host Howie Mandel is back to host the show and of course ask that iconic question, “Deal or No Deal?” CNBC’s new season of Deal or No Deal will consist of 30 original one-hour episodes, and it will join the network’s primetime lineup airing at the end of 2018. Beginning in July, guests of Universal Orlando Resort will also have the opportunity to be part of the studio audience and experience the thrill and excitement of this high stakes game show.

Despicable Me, Shrek, Madagascar and Holiday Favorites Spread the Cheer in the New Universal’s Holiday Parade Featuring Macy’s

The new Universal’s Holiday Parade Featuring Macy’s is unlike any other parade that has been at Universal Orlando Resort.

We have 16 new balloons that will soar above you, 13 of which were exclusively designed for us by Macy’s, the global leader in balloon entertainment. And let me just say right now: the Dronkeys from Shrek are adorable (more to come on them later)!

These 15 floats are HUGE. Each float has an astonishing lighting display and unique details to each theme.

Despicable Me, Shrek, Madagascar and Holiday Favorites Spread the Cheer in the New Universal’s Holiday Parade Featuring Macy’s

Jingle All the Way With the Minions

The Minions are bringing mayhem to the holidays this year. You’ll hear them sing their own rendition of Jingle Bells as they attempt to decorate a Christmas tree. Look up and you’ll see Bob the Minion balloon chase after his favorite teddy bear, Tim. You’ll also see Lucy (for the first time ever), Gru and his daughters spreading holiday cheer.

Santa Claus is Coming to Madagascar

Up next, King Julien and the Madagascar crew are inviting you to a tropical holiday party. The Penguins are searching for Santa Claus, followed by King Julien who has gifted himself a giant pineapple balloon. The last float showcases Alex, Gloria, Marty and Melman celebrating the holidays like only they can.

Celebrate the Most Wonderful Time of Year with Shrek  

Shrek, Fiona and their baby ogres are also celebrating the holidays in their swamp. Gingy leads the festivities from above with his gingerbread house float below. Donkey follows right behind with an assortment of gifts. Lastly, Shrek and Fiona share a massive float with Dragon while two of her Dronkey babies fly above.

Here Comes Santa Claus…With His Elves

Holiday favorites are also returning with a brand new look. Santa’s elves are inviting you into the workshop where you’ll see all your favorite toys come to life. Following close behind is Santa Claus himself. Santa’s float is beautiful when it lights up with all the reindeer!

Having a performance background, I’m also really excited about the choreography in this parade. We have more than 100 performers and every one of them has a unique personality that ties to their character’s theme.

Also new to the parade this year is the musical score—and Santa will be making it snow throughout the parade.

You can watch the parade near the end of your park day in Universal Studios Florida. Check the Official Universal Orlando Resort App or your park map for the parade start time when you visit.

The parade is just one of the exciting new elements coming to this year’s Holidays celebration at Universal Orlando Resort.

The festivities start on Saturday, Nov. 18 and run through Jan. 6. Start writing your Christmas list and add Holidays at Universal Orlando to it. You won’t want to miss it!

One Night Only: Autism-Friendly Blue Man Group Show To Support Autism Speaks

One Night Only: Autism-Friendly Blue Man Group Show To Support Autism Speaks

Blue Man Group at Universal CityWalk has once again partnered with Autism Speaks, the world’s largest autism science and advocacy organization. Their third annual collaborative Blue Man Group performance will be on Saturday, December 9, 2017, at 6 p.m.

This performance will be “autism-friendly,” creating a safe and welcoming environment for individuals and families affected by autism.

 

Every time Universal partners with Autism Speaks for this special performance, the cast and crew can’t wait for the show to begin. The energy from the audience is so unique and everyone involved plays off of that energy. Some individuals with autism may be non-verbal, but it doesn’t matter once our show starts because the Blue Men communicate without words.

It is so special to look out into the audience and witness people of all ages affected by autism connecting with the Blue Men and music in an environment where they’re encouraged to be themselves and have fun.

Slight modifications will be made to the show including reducing sound and light levels at various moments during the performance and making earplugs available upon request. The Blue Men will limit the amount of direct audience interaction and keep their approach to the audience more subdued. Blue Man Group will also create calming environments in the theater’s lobby for families seeking a break from the excitement.

The Universal Orlando Resort Autism Speaks performance is part of a national partnership between Blue Man Group and Autism Speaks, in which Blue Man Group pledges to host autism-friendly shows suitable for families in Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, New York City and Orlando.

Four Horrific Original Houses Revealed For Halloween Horror Nights 2017

Four Horrific Original Houses Revealed For Halloween Horror Nights 2017

Welcome back to the Halloween Horror Nights campfire. In the distance, we hear the call of The Festival of the Deadliest. As opening night closes in, the call grows stronger, drawing us all into its seductive grasp. The chilling celebration of blood and bone is about to begin at Universal Orlando Resort.

It is time to unleash the Original Houses and the secrets they contain. So gather ‘round the campfire for our final chilling stories.

Scarecrow: The Reaping

Since the great dustbowl, an abandoned farmhouse stands in Nebraska. The bountiful fields ravaged by the farmers’ plows have spurred anger in the Land. Scarecrow guardians have risen from the blood soaked soil to seek revenge. The harvest that will be reaped this season is you.

Hive

We’re huge fans of those little-known 1980s horror movies, and we wanted to make you feel as if you’re in those movies. The story takes everything that is sexy, beautiful or cool about vampires and flushes it down the toilet. These Nosferatu are nasty, animalistic, and vicious. It’s the type of house that will make you cling to your date all the way to the exit…if you make it that far.

Dead Waters

We have had houses that later became scare zones in the streets of Universal Studios Florida. This is one of the first times, in recent memory, that a scare zone has influenced a house. For Halloween Horror Nights 24, we had the Bayou of Blood scare zone. It was so strong in character and story that we had to revisit its story again.

We’re excited to have you explore the Dead Waters of the Voodoo Queen and her hellish realm. Trust me…you’ll freak out when you see the half sunken riverboat and the skeletal remains of her victims close in.

The Fallen

It’s the ancient battle between good and evil. The Fallen are flying, jumping, and crawling up from the kingdom of darkness and laying waste to all who cross their path of destruction. These creatures are awesome…and yes, I did say flying. This house is a mix between beauty and decay, high screech and deep roar, and delivers more surprises than I can fit in this paragraph.

These stories are just the beginning. They only lack one thing—you. Come and be a part of these tales before the firelight dies out and we are plunged into darkness. The Festival of the Deadliest is almost here…and it’s enticing lights are pulling us to our wondrous doom.

Get your tickets now and come be a part of the celebration of blood and bone. You know you want to (Cue evil laughter).

WARNING: Event may be too intense for young children and is not recommended for children under the age of 13. No costumes or masks allowed.

Trick ‘r Treat And The Purge To Haunt The Streets Of Halloween Horror Nights

Trick ‘r Treat And The Purge To Haunt The Streets Of Halloween Horror Nights

There is one aspect of Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights no one can escape… the SCARE ZONES. They’re the first and last things you’ll experience, and it’s Universal Studio Orlando’s chance to make sure there is no way to hide from the scares.

This Halloween Horror Nights, we’re inviting you to join the celebration of blood and bone at what can only be called The Festival of the Deadliest – an ancient tradition from the depths of where nightmares are born.

A gathering of the most unearthly, hellish terrors has emerged from the darkest corners of despair. It calls to those who long for the thrill of the scare and wish to have their fears made real. You’ll be drawn like moths to a flame, and once you join this hallowed celebration, your nightmares will never end.

You’ll find the heart of the Festival on the streets of Hollywood in Universal Studios Florida, but its claws have spread throughout Horror Nights. Here’s what awaits you every night…

Trick ‘r Treat

First up, it’s time to make sure everyone understands the rules of this haunted holiday. Get a proper Halloween education in our Central Park scare zone inspired by the film Trick ‘r TreatUniversal is excited to have Sam visit and make sure we follow the rules of Halloween.

Trick ‘r Treat And The Purge To Haunt The Streets Of Halloween Horror Nights

The Purge

Next up, you have a returning story to New York streets with The Purge. This time, the approach was to create a zone that showed how Universal thinks the events of a Purge night might play out in their streets.

There are some fan favorites returning such as our auction and a very polite gentleman. We also have some new surprises in store. For example, how do you clean up all the mayhem on the streets during a Purge night? Visit the clean-crew up crew with their trusty wood chipper to find out. Just don’t get too close…

Altars of Horror

Near the front gate, on Avenue of the Stars, you have Altars of Horror. For us, this zone is very exciting because Universal is bringing something to the streets for horror fans that they have never done before.

In this zone, they’re taking some of the larger than life characters featured in this year’s houses, and letting them have their own scare zone. A lot of work goes into bringing these iconic film characters to life in our houses. Now you’ll have the opportunity to get an even better look at them.

Invasion!

Set in a time decades ago, the docks in San Francisco find themselves the victim of an INVASION! Visitors from far beyond have crashed their vessel, and are now wreaking havoc on the streets of San Francisco.

They aren’t just here to destroy; these invaders are also on a mission to learn everything they can about us humans. Careful, or you may find yourself on the experiment table at the mercy of an alien scientist.
