Fireworks at Universal?

Hi,
Do they regularly have fireworks at Universal? If so, how often (nightly?). Where (which park?)? What time about?

I LOVE fireworks, hoping we can catch some. We'll be there on a Sunday and Monday.

TIA!

I have never seen fireworks at Universal, but we don't go during the summer months so someone may have knowledge for that time of year. We usually do Universal parks during part of the day, take a break and eat, then head to Disney for my fireworks fix.....gotta LOVE those fireworks! And Disney does them so well!

I don't think Universal does fireworks. When we were there, they showed something like movie clips over the little "lake" in US. You can always go over to one of the Disney hotels near MK and watch the fireworks.

There will be fireworks tonight and the Universal 360 - A Cinesphere Spectacular show starts tonight and runs through August 13th. The shows are in the Studios lagoon and usually start at park closing. No big firework displays though...except for tonight.

Too bad, but thanks for the info! I do love Disney's fireworks - never miss 'em when I'm there. We'll get a mini-display aboard the Dream before we go to Universal - that'll do!

I remember fireworks on the 4th in years past. Did you hear the reason for not having them this year?

I'm pretty sure I remember there being no fireworks last year either. Wasn't there, just from the discussion on here.

But there were when I first moved here in 2004. I remember riding Hulk one night and watching the fireworks at the same time...or trying to.

We went a couple years ago and it was just that awful 360 thing, no fireworks. Very disappointing for 4th of July. Perhaps it is because they are right in the midst of a residential area?

Yeah, they didn't do them tonight. It was my first time seeing the 360 tonight and it was alright.

I'm pretty sure they didn't do it last year either, since I seem to remember a lot of people complaining about the lack of on Facebook.
