Marilyn Monroe and Universal?

Universal Orlando: I have seen her at Universal Hollywood, but never at Universal Orlando.

I have been many times at USO and I have never seen her. I have been only once at USH and I saw her there. Anyone has seen her in Orlando?

I saw her for the first time along with a Lucille Ball impersonator this past Thanksgiving at USF right before the parade. I've been going to Universal for years and hadn't seen either until then.

Heck, even *I* saw her in Florida. I also rode behind her and Elvis at the Phoenix Phall Phunfest at Knoebels. Truth.

We've seen her nearly every day during our Universal Studio vacations. Even had pictures with her. Both her & Betty Boop look like the real thing. A pretty good casting & makeup job. Generally its been early in the day.

I use a photo of Marilyn and me taken at USF as my twitter photo. I had such a smile after the photo was taken. She stayed in character the whole time, wispy voice and all.

I just need to be in the right place at the right time.

Universal should give a special offer for guests who are celebrating their birthdays at the park; to have Marilyn Monroe sing "happy birthday" to them.

Daniel: That's an excellent idea.

But does the recipient get to dress up as JFK?

Was he dressed up when he was with Marilyn?

If Universal had the happy birthday option with Marilyn, I would go there for all my birthdays! And I'm sure I will not be the only one asking for it. They could give the option to dress one like JFK.

@Rob...at the "Happy Birthday" occasion, yes. I won't speculate on other times...

I have seen her at USO, but it has been awhile
