    Re: Universal Studios Orlando Gemini

    i totally understand what you are trying to do but you should also remember what properties are owned by universal. I can tell you right now 2012 and night at the museum are not owned by universal. so i can totally get what this is...but you might wanna do your research on some of the film properties you are using.
