After one long year of waiting, Universal Hollywood is finally able to reopen for Guests! Universal has just announced the reopening date for Universal Studios Hollywood will be on April 16, and we are excited to get back to the theme park.
Universal is currently holding a special event called Taste of Universal, which features plenty of food, drink, and characters.
