Description And Comments

In 2012 the Studios introduced the Disney-like Universal's Superstar Parade, featuring dancers and performers, four large and elaborate floats inspired by cartoons and animated features, and a very mixed bag of street-prowling Universal characters. The parade stops twice for a highly choreographed ensemble number. Though impressive in its scope and coordination, the performance is well-nigh impossible to take in from any given viewing spot. The same floats are trotted out individually at various times of day for mini-shows and character meet-and-greets.

The parade begins at the gate between Louie's Pizza, in the New York section of the park, and Beetlejuice's Graveyard Revue, in San Francisco. From there it proceeds along 5th Avenue, past Revenge of the Mummy. At the end of 5th Avenue, the parade takes a left onto Plaza of the Stars and heads toward the front of the park, where it makes another left onto Hollywood Boulevard, from whence it disappears backstage across from Mel's Diner.

Touring Tips

The best viewing spots are along 5th Avenue, on the front steps of faux buildings in New York.
