In this first episode, Alicia and Ian dive into the details for the Harry Potter Coaster being built at Universal Orlando, plus we discuss recent budget cuts around the Orlando parks. The podcast is available in a video and audio only version below. The video version includes additional visuals.
In our first podcast episode we really dig in to all the technical details, rumored characters and animatronics, and story theories for the new Harry Potter Coaster being built at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. The new coaster is opening in 2019, but there’s still so much that hasn’t been officially announced! We also discuss some of the budget cuts going on at Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando, including entertainment cuts, restaurants going seasonal and Rafiki’s Planet Watch closing.
