Welcome back to another photo update around the Universal Orlando Resort. This week we’ll start things off with a look at the installation of the sign on the exterior of NBC Sports Grill Brew. Over at the Studios, the archway has been decorated for Halloween Horror Nights. That’s just the tip of the iceberg for HHN coverage this week since there’s plenty of new props and merchandise to look at. Over at Islands of Adventure, we’ll take a look a look at King Kong and a Toon Lagoon shop under refurbishment. All that and much more, so let’s get going.

  • Thanks for the update.
    I wish they’d keep those horror stuffed animals year-round, since I can’t go until summer. I’d go broke trying to when them all.

  • We’re bringing our boys next week (ages 9 and 4) only on non-HHN days. We’re hoping that there won’t be too much scary stuff left out during the day. DS9 will take it in stride, but DS4 will have nightmares just from seeing too many creepy/bloody/scary clown t-shirts. Are these displays fairly easy to avoid, especially when entering KidZone and other little-kid areas?
