Lights, Awnings, Neon, and More Removed From Former Classic Monsters Café and Shrek & Donkey Meet and Greet at Universal Studios Florida

The Universal Studios’ Classic Monsters Café closed permanently in May, and with it the Shrek and Donkey Meet & Greet. Since then, the awnings, lights, neon, and more have been removed from the exterior of the shared building.
