Universal’s Superstar Parade Returns at Universal Orlando Resort

Like most theme parks in the U.S., Universal Orlando Resort has been heading towards normal Park operations for quite some time now, and it seems that they have reached another milestone.

From mask mandates being fully removed for fully vaccinated Guests, to social distancing disappearing, to single rider lines returning, the Universal theme park experience truly has felt like it is on the way to a pre-pandemic state. However, one thing that has been missing for quite some time now is their parade. This changed earlier today (June 26)!

Orlando Informer (@OrlandoInformer) noted that Universal’s Superstar Parade, which shows off fan-favorite characters such as Nickelodeon's SpongeBob SquarePants, returned to Universal Studios Florida at 7:00 p.m. this evening.

Universal Orlando Resort describes the parade as:

"Boogie down with Nickelodeon’s 'SpongeBob SquarePants,' Dora and Diego. Rock out with Gru, Agnes, Margo, Edith and the Minions from Illumination’s Despicable Me. And catch funny moments from The Secret Life of Pets as the streets of Universal Studios come alive with elaborately themed floats, energetic street performers and spectacular music."

The parade hasn’t been offered since March 2020, although floats have appeared regularly in some form since the reopening of the park last summer.

Parades truly heighten the theme park experience and give guests an excuse to laugh, smile, dance around, and wave to their favorite characters, so it is great to see this offering return to Universal. With Halloween Horror Nights around the corner, Universal is really showing guests that they can give them a fun-filled park day.

It's also nice to know that Nickelodeon is still at Universal Studios in one capacity.
