Last week, the Orlando Parkhopper showed you the walls going up around Sound Stage 44.  Universal Orlando has wasted no time demolishing this building.  Earlier this year, building permits were issued for Sound Stage 44 to host a haunted house for this year’s Halloween Horror Nights.  As the construction walls were going up, the Halloween Horror Nights crew was being kicked out, and now it is anyone’s guess where that haunted house will be relocated.

Large equipment has already been moved in, and even with the rain from Tropical Storm Debby, demolition is moving forward and fast!  This building will be gone in no time.

Along with Sound Stage 44 the Shrek Meet and Greet is also being demolished.  Universal Orlando has not yet announced where Shrek, Fiona and Donkey will be moving.

The video we have attached to this article is the Sponge Bob street performance. Universal has been taking individual units from their new parade and having them do spot performances in the park throughout the day. It has been a big hit with park guests.

Unfortunately, it’s been quite wet in Orlando from the recent hurricane, some parts of the state are experiencing devastating floods. We cut our recent trip short, but will be back soon with more news from the Universal Studios Orlando Resort.

On the subject of rain, how much rain is too much for you? At what point do you grab the kids and head back to the hotel?
