We noticed that flowers were left near Bruce in honor of a long-time Universal Orlando Team Member who passed away recently. A Go Fund Me has been set up for his family, and you can donate to their relief here.

We stopped into Finnegan’s Bar and Grill for a Raptor Juicebox and a Potato and Onion Webb. This was a great appetizer to go along with our delicious drink.

It’s a brutally hot day today, but thankfully, the fire hydrant water play area is running. We saw so many kids and adults running through the water and splashing around to cool down.

Ever since the bypass bridge opened with the new cage, there have been barricades in this area. There are some tape markings along the ground, and we’ve noticed Team Members measuring in the area. We’ll be interested to see what happens here.
