Easily the best of the Hogwarts nighttime show. Glad to see it’s returning.

Is Hollywood the only one with this show or do they all have it?

I know that Orlando has run the show as well.

Thanks Robert I've always missed it when we go to Orlando. I'll need to look into it next time :)

However, from my understanding the Orlando version does not include the drones (for me this is the most compelling reason to watch the show). Universal has used drones in the Orlando parks before, so perhaps they'll be added this time around.
