  1. This makes me nervous. Universal Hollywood is nothing in comparison to Orlando. It’s a whole different ball game. It’s always scary when someone new steps in. We may get stuck with another Chapek. The fact that she’s coming from California with all of their crazy rules doesn’t make me feel any more confident.

    1. I totally agree with you. Bill Davis is fantastic and made all the right decisions during the pandemic. He will be a very hard act to follow.
