We only have time for one day at universal....so if we do IOA we won't see the DM characters? I picked IOA because my son is a die hard superhero fan, but will be sad to miss some of the other characters.

As far as I know that's correct Despicable Me is over at Universal and Marvel characters are at Islands of Adventure. I don't remember ever seeing the 2 .parks characters together

I agree with Truck - I've never seen those particular characters cross parks (though some others do - Lorax and Popeye come to mind).

Great day at Universal - posted 12 new photos and spotted an additional 20+ characters. New page for Men In Black Agents (I've never seen them before) plus new Minion Kevin!

Maybe Im confusing them with something else, but I think Ive seen MIB agents walking around with Marylin Monroe or driving a car with another star in it. They almost looked like they were playing body guard to certain stars.

Marilyn and Lucy's attendants are dressed in suits; but the agents I met earlier this week has props for themselves and the Guests. I was told that they've been out in the past; but I personally had never seen them before. Very fun!

I have yet to see the MIB Agents. I just assumed that the suits with Lucy were the agents. Usually Ill see them over in front of Terminator area with the rest of the characters. There usually on the side walk or with in about 10 feet or so, and look like secret service agents.

Any idea on what happened to Beetlejuice on Sun? My wife and I wnet over after the color run and they had canceled the 4 oclock show at least. I think it may have been all of them. (the sign didnt have any show times on it and the cm at the entrance told everyone that the show was canceled and that the cast would be out) The cast were doing pics in front of the theater and Dracula and Hop were missing when we went by on our way out about 415 ish.

Sounds like some the Performers weren't available for the last show?

I was waiting for Blues Brothers couple years ago and we were told the show was cancelled due to Technical Difficulties... so the Performers came out for photos. There was only 1 brother. I guess that's a pretty big difficulty when you're missing half the brothers.

Could be. Thats what we were thinking. The odd thing was that all of the show times listed out front of the theatre were removed which gave me the impression that all of the shows for the day were canceled. Usually they leave them up until there ready to change them for the next days times.

In US the depending in the characters they are usually in front of the Character store by DMMM and the block in front of terminator. Other places they are for the Blues Brothers are in front of the shop where they perform, Bettlejuice and his crew are in their own theatre by Disaster and during the day some of the parade floats will have characters by the horror make up show Intersection. Other characters will be near the animal show theatre and in the playland area. On the map it will tell you for the most part the times. I'm not sure on IOA
