This special pre-show is five minutes long, and runs before Universal Orlando’s Cinematic Celebration all summer long.


Alongside imagery that showcases some of the past and present Olympic stars is custom music that features elements from the event scores crafted by composer John Williams. While the show doesn’t have fireworks, it does include choreographed fountains, lighting, and lasers.

Alongside this new nighttime celebration are Olympics-themed food tents that have popped up by the Music Plaza Stage, featuring Japanese fare.
