Universal Orlando announces New Mega Movie Parade, Cinesational Lagoon Show, and New Hogwarts Projection Show

Today, Monday, April 29, 2024, Universal Orlando Resort has announced a collection of new, must-see experiences that offer exciting entertainment for the whole family from day to night coming to the resort this sumer.

The lineup includes the June 14 grand opening of DreamWorks Land, plus the debut of a riveting new nighttime lagoon show, CineSational: A Symphonic Spectacular, plus Hogwarts Always – an all-new castle projection show in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade.

These new experiences will be followed on July 3, with debut of Universal’s largest daytime parade to date, Universal Mega Movie Parade.

Beginning July 3, some of the most beloved stories from Universal’s films will leap off the screen and land on the streets of Universal Studios Florida for Universal Mega Movie Parade.

This spectacular new parade will feature well known floats from many of Universal's iconic movies - E.T., Back to the Future, Jaws, Ghostbusters, Jurassic World, Illumination’s Minions and Sing and DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls and Kung Fu Panda.

Universal Mega Movie Parade will be Universal Orlando’s biggest daytime parade to date and combine 13 brand new floats, nearly 100 performers – including dancers, skaters, stilt walkers, poi performers and more – and special effects to create a jaw-dropping experience where guests can relive classic film moments in a whole new way.

Guests will watch in awe as they see the massive 16-foot Stay Puft Marshmallow Man atop the Ghostbusters float, the colorful Caterbus and giant rainbows on the vibrant Trolls float, a live marching drum line perform the iconic movie score of Jaws alongside a float themed to the film, and – for the epic finale – a Gyrosphere, Raptors and the fierce Tyrannosaurus rex aboard the Jurassic World float – and so much more. Fans should also pay close attention to the parade to see if they can spot additional details that nod to iconic elements from the films.

Universal Orlando has also confirmed the return of the Summer Tribute Store, which this year will complement the new parade experience and feature themed rooms, merchandise and photo ops inspired by some of the films that will be seen in the Universal Mega Movie Parade.

More details about the Summer Tribute Store will be revealed soon.
