Universal is 100 years old - But what will that mean for the theme parks?

Now, with more Comcast!
The highlight so far is the announcement that Universal will restore 13 of its top films this year, releasing many of them on Blu-Ray special editions. But what will Universal do at its theme parks? Here's the release, again:
Universal’s Parks and Resorts will help highlight the campaign with centennial specific content and merchandise throughout both the Orlando and Hollywood locations. The Orlando resort will soon announce a specially themed entertainment experience that will celebrate Universal’s heritage. At the iconic Hollywood park, the world-famous Studio Tour features expert guides that will take guests on a tour through 100 years of moviemaking history on the Universal Studios production backlot. Tours are conducted daily, visiting TV and movie sets ranging from the early Universal Studios monster film classics to current productions.
The TL/DR? A new movie-history exhibit in Orlando, new logo T-shirts, and... they'll keep running the Studio Tour in Hollywood. Ho..kay. To be fair, the 100th anniversary of the Universal City complex isn't until 2015, so there's time to do up something big for that. (Hmmm, I've got an idea.)
What would you like to see Universal do in Orlando and in Hollywood to celebrate its 100th birthday?
