PHOTOS, VIDEO: Universal’s Superstar Parade Dances Back Into Universal Studios Florida

Parades have officially returned to Orlando as Universal’s Superstar Parade makes its way through the streets of Universal Studios Florida once again. Like the “Celebration of the Festival of the Lion King” over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, the parade is a smaller version of its pre-pandemic performance. Let’s take a look!

Right now, the parade is continuous and does not make its typical two stops. As such, the parade dancers, like these Minions, are currently not performing full dance numbers. However, there are still a few of them grooving along the route.
