I plan on going to Universal Studios on May 8th with my husband. I heard that the new parade and night show will start on that day. Anybody know at what time it's going to happen?

I looked all over the internet and can't seem to find any information...

Thank you in advance

I would wait until the week before to check that, it's too early to say.

The times don't get revealed until that specific park map is out. However, I'm predicting the parade will be daily at 3 PM like most parks, and the nighttime show would be at park closing.

Does anyone know how late in the year it will continue? We went to Universal last year in mid August but the nighttime show had stopped running by August 13th and we missed it. We will be arriving this year on August 13th for 3 nights and I'm really hoping to see the new show.

Universal's press release said spring, summer and selected nights in the fall.

I would love to know their definition of summer :)

It's the first day of Summer, which will be June 20.

Probably next year when Universal's 100th Anniversary is over.

Dominick, (you made me laugh) I meant when does their summer season end.

Last year they ended their nighttime show performances on August 13th though. I wonder what they will do with this new show.

It will run this Spring, Summer, and select nights in the fall. We've been over this already.

It's May 1st and still can't find out at what time it is scheduled (I tweeted UO about 100 times about it but they seem to ignore my tweets!).

Does anybody have some new information to share?

Thank you!

It will be at park closing, or around 8, 8:30-ish.

Probably. I just wish I knew in advance because I'm planning our trip right now... I wonder why they wouldn't give out the informations?

The evening show is 8:30. I was there 2 nights ago and saw it (trip report coming soon). Unless you have to sit down to watch it, it is easy to see even if you get there 5 minutes before the show starts. Seats are harder to get. However, the show is only advertised the day of with signs around the lagoon.

I got to see it last week. Right now they are doing the show whenever the park closes at 8:30pm. If the park closes earlier than that it isn't being shown on that night. From the schedule in May I expect that they will be showing it on May 3rd & 5th at 8:30 when the park closes. It will probably be shown between 8:30 and 9pm on May 6th - 10th and not shown on the 11th. They have to wait for it to get dark before it is shown which is anytime after 8pm right now.

Wow thank you! I'll be there on the 8th (the park closes at 9:00)...

And what about the parade?

p.s. Calling UO from Montreal costs me a lot of $$$, that is why I am looking over the internet instead.

We still have no idea on the parade. The next park map will give us the times.

Any idea when the next park map will be out?

Sunday. Universal has the showtimes in it's maps so they have to change them every week or every other week. The current map goes through this Saturday.
