Welcome Sign Missing From CityWalk Entrance, New ‘Harry Potter’ and Marvel Mugs Arrive, and More: Universal Orlando Resort Photo Report 3/28/22

Welcome back to another beautiful day at the Universal Orlando Resort. It’s sunny and the temperature isn’t overly hot – perfect weather for a day at the parks.

While walking into CityWalk we noticed something a little different about the welcome sign.

The entire welcome sign is missing! Previously just the “Orlando” part was missing from the sign, but today all of the letters have been removed. We aren’t sure if this is just a refurbishment or if the sign will be replaced, but stay tuned for updates.

Looking for a new mug to put your morning coffee in? Check out these cool mugs we spotted around the parks.

Diagon Alley is usually one of the busiest areas, so it not being too crowded was a great start to our day! 

gringotts wait time

Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts was only a 35 minute wait this morning. Not bad. 

minions wait time

Heading towards the entrance of the park though, Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem was a 90 minute wait. Minions are definitely a crowd priority.

Not much going on around Universal Studios Florida, so let’s head over to Universals Island’s of Adventure.

Popeye & Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges reopened last week from a standard refurbishment. Warning, you will get soaked. Fear not, the beautiful weather will be sure to dry you off! 


We ended our day hanging out with Cyclops outside the Comic Shop in Marvel Super Hero Island.
