I think I’m going to just give up and use that $75 towards my potential trip to Orlando next year for the 50th Anniversary. $75 already pays for a one way flight to MCO.
What airline are you flying? I know Frontier has lower rates. We are looking at $250/person round trip which is pretty darn good.

Due to popular demand its been extended 2 weeks. Probably all part of the plan get the demand up by only having 3 weeks available and then boom release 2 more weeks. The permit does go until June so curious how far they might extend it for this initial push .
I gotta believe the next time they extend dates it will be closer to $100/ticket.

>>Universal Studios Hollywood announced that it will open its gates for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic began in March 2020 with Taste of Universal.

The outdoor dining and shopping experience is the first step in the theme park’s re-opening plan and includes access to specific themed lands from noon-7 p.m. on select Fridays-Sundays beginning Friday, March 12. Guests will get a first look at the new “The Secret Life of Pets: Off the Leash” attraction shop and pet store; the all-new “Despicable Me Minion Mayhem” Minion Cafe; Hogsmeade Village inside “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” and “The Simpsons’ Springfield, U.S.A.”

Tickets are $44-$49 for adults and $25 for children ages 3-9 at universalstudioshollywood.com. The ticket includes a choice of five menu items (three for children) from a large menu featuring appetizers, entrees, beverages, desserts and vegan and vegetarian options. Additional items can be purchased a la carte. In total, there are 70 culinary options, 30 of which are new to the theme park.

Some of the offerings include Krusty Burgers, Lard Lad Donuts and Suds McDuff’s Hot Dogs from “The Simpsons’ Springfield, U.S.A.” and treats from Honeydukes and fish and chips from Three Broomsticks inside “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.”

The Hollywood & Dine section will feature queso street tacos, loaded nachos and elote corn on the cob with lime crema from Cocina Mexicana, hot chicken sandwiches, clam chowder in a sourdough bowl, pizza, brisket sliders with caramelized onions, Korean hot dogs and mini funnel cakes. The City Snack Shop will have giant pretzels, spicy pomegranate glazed turkey legs and the all-new Crepewich with sweet and savory options.

Taste of Universal will also be the debut of the Minion Cafe which will include grilled cheese sandwiches with meatballs, chicken and bacon mac and cheese and Nutella banana pudding.

There will also be photo ops throughout the event and characters from various franchises like “Trolls,” “Despicable Me” and “Kung Fu Panda” will be on-site for socially distanced meet-and-greets.<<


"Taste of Universal"? subtle jab there at Knott's. Is there really enough interest in a Universal type festival?

>>The new food festival coming to Disney California Adventure has proven so popular that Disneyland has extended the event just a few hours after fans feverishly snapped up tickets as soon as they went on sale.

A Touch of Disney ticket sales have been extended by an additional two weeks due to the popularity of the experience, according to Disneyland officials.

A Touch of Disney will start on March 18 at Disney California Adventure and will now run through at least April 19 with additional dates to be added on a rolling basis. The event — which was originally scheduled to run through April 5 — will run five days a week on Thursdays through Mondays from noon to 8 p.m.<<

My goodness... TDA must be on cloud nine. They can charge theme park level entry prices without even having to operate one of the most costly aspects of a theme park! No shows, no rides.. nothin’! Hallelujah. Can’t even imagine the demand (and prices) for when they actually open.

oh please . they don't know if the event itself is good let alone popular. the tickets were in demand. doesn't mean people actually like the experience yet. what a stupid statement to make.

Well, think about when the parks actually re-open.

All full priced tickets, single park, and maybe only part of the day.

And so long as they sell out, or get close to it, no "Membership" program.
