PHOTO REPORT: Universal Orlando Resort 12/26/20 (New Wizarding World Wands, Lunch at Lombard’s Seafood Grille, Cold Weather Delays, and More)

It’s another cold winter day here at Universal Orlando. The sun is shining, but temperatures are in the 40s, which can cause weather delays for some of the outdoor attractions, like Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit and the Incredible Hulk.

Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit was testing throughout the morning and afternoon after being closed yesterday.

The attractions all had high wait times, but the parks did not hit capacity today.

There were long lines for most of the food options around the park, so we decided to stop into Lombard’s Seafood Grille for a quick lunch. The San Pablo Spinach and Artichoke Dip never disappoints. We also had the Wild Mushroom Gratin and the holiday exclusive Catalina Frost.

Dividers have been placed between tables to accommodate more guests in the dining area. This might not be the most attractive look, but it does help increase the capacity of the restaurant.

You can’t beat lunch with a great view of the park.

We headed over to Islands of Adventure next. The crowds really didn’t feel as bad as we expected.

It’s really cold, and we noticed some of the flowers and plants around the park have not taken it well. Some of the trees along the Jurassic World VelociCoaster track are covered up, most likely due to the cold.
