We all know that John Stamos is one of us. Take a look at his home (You’ll want to scroll through the photos at the bottom) and see just how nerdy he is about Disney….he just has a little more money than I do….so his stuff’s a bit cooler. 😉

      Have no fear–we’ve got coverage of the grand opening in the weekly Universal News later today. (Our Universal News is a regular feature every Friday.)

      Also today, if you follow the TouringPlans Twitter account, Brian is at Universal and attempted to ride Hagrid’s first thing this morning… before he was told that the ride was down for “additional testing”. Hoping to have more updates from him later in the day as the ride opens again.

    I really don’t like the new style of Disney animation and I really hope the Disney+ offers classic shows so my family can avoid it.
