Park of the Week: SeaWorld San Diego

Universal Orlando to Close Its Daily Parade

May 18, 2022, 12:41 PM · Universal's Superstar Parade will end its 10-year run at the Universal Studios Florida next month, the Universal Orlando Resort has announced.

Universal Orlando today posted the news on its website: "Universal's Superstar Parade will end its run on June 4 to make way for new entertainment experiences."

Universal Studios Florida's daily parade opened 10 years ago, on May 8, 2012. Here is our video of its premiere performance.

The parade today features licensed Nickelodeon characters such as SpongeBob Square Pants and Dora the Explorer as well as Universal's own IP, such as Gru and the Minions from Despicable Me and The Secret Life of Pets. But it misses several other Universal Parks franchises that have been featured in parades at Universal Studios in Japan, including Jurassic Park and Harry Potter. So let's take this as an invitation to offer up your wish list for what you would like to see Universal Orlando do next with a USF parade.

Long overdue. Sesame Street perfected the concept of “stop and go” parade, so this was running on borrowed time ever since that opened. Bring over something like the night parade at Japan and I’d be happy.

My kid loves this parade so much! And it's sad to know... Maybe it's overrated, but it's still the favorite heroes. Such things give our kids a happy childhood when we, as a parent, can't do it for them. Then they need to study hard and become an adult. That's why I allow my kids to use resources with writing help. I even found a source where I could read their review and choose the best one. My goal as a mom is to get them more rest and happiness. I hope the new parade will be better and will not upset kids. Universal Orlando is in their hearts.
