    Universal Orlando’s parent company said Wednesday it will pour hundreds of millions of added dollars more into new attractions in Florida and California this year, accelerating an already aggressive construction plans in program schedule at its U.S. theme parks.

    Cable-and-media giant concern Comcast Corp., which reported second-quarter earnings Wednesday, said it plans to boost capital spending at its NBCUniversal division by 50 percent this year to $1.1 billion — twice as big an increase as initially projected.

    The vast majority of that money will be spent within the NBCUniversal family of Universal Studios theme parks — particularly Universal Orlando, which just opened a major Transformers thrill ride and a Simpsons retail area. The park is racing to finish a second Harry Potter land and an 1,800-room hotel by early 2014. The Orlando resort recently paid approximately $31 million to buy the land beneath its Wet 'n Wild water park, as well, though it hasn't yet announced any new plans for that neigbhoring attraction.

  8. Not sure if this has been posted already:

  9. New evidence found on Universal Orlando’s passholder website suggests that The Wizarding World of Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley expansion may open between mid-June and mid-August 2014.

    Universal has blocked those with the Power Pass (one of their annual passholder levels) from entering Universal Studios Florida beginning Saturday, June 14 through Saturday, August 14. Those with the Power Pass may enter the neighboring park Islands of Adventure, which houses the original Wizarding World, during that time.

    This two-month block out period isn’t normal for those with the Power Pass. This year, the same annual pass is only blocked from entering during the month of July. The purpose of the passholder black out is to help control crowd size.

    This blockout period falls perfectly in line with an April report which said Universal is planning to open the Diagon Alley land the week around June 11.
