Universal Orlando Resort’s new nighttime lagoon show “Universal Orlando’s Cinematic Celebration” officially opened tonight at Universal Studios Florida.

Guests now have a brand-new way to cap off their day in Universal Studios as they enjoy an “epic cinema under the stars” in the heart of the theme park.


The show seamlessly blends panoramic water screens accented by multi-layer water screens, pyrotechnics, lasers, projection mapping and more than 120 dancing fountains to transform the lagoon and surrounding buildings into a vivid celebration of beloved characters from Universal attractions and films.

And guests can watch this all come to life in an all-new dedicated viewing area designed specifically for the show.

Some of the more iconic moments in the show come from the famous “Harry Potter,” “Jurassic World,” “Fast & Furious,” and “Despicable Me” films. Some of which include spells, terrifying roars, high-octane action and mischief from everyone’s favorite Minions.  

This new nighttime show joins “The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle” in Universal’s Islands of Adventure as Universal Orlando’s second nighttime celebration.


“Universal Orlando’s Cinematic Celebration” runs select nights this summer.
