Universal Orlando Labor Day Weekend is the perfect time to explore all of the new rides, shows and attractions Universal Orlando has introduced in their “Year to be Here.” Start your weekend at Universal Studios with the fun-filled new 3D Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem. You won’t believe how incredible and hilarious the attraction is as you take a chaotic journey with Gru, his three-adopted daughters and those hilarious yellow minions. You can also catch Gru and his adorable family along with SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora and more in the new daytime parade Superstar Parade. At night make sure you stick around to watch Universal’s Cinematic Spectacular – 100 Years of Movie Memories where you’ll relive Universal’s most iconic films in a stunning tribute with movie clips and explosive fireworks. And as always, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Islands of Adventure offers plenty of wizarding fun all weekend long.

Wet ‘n Wild Since Labor Day Weekend often signifies the final days of summer, what better way to send the season off than with a splash-tastic weekend at America’s favorite water park? Wet ‘n Wild recently added a new kid-friendly lineup to its watery fun and this coming weekend is a great time to check it out. Blastaway Beach is a family water play area featuring a 60-foot sandcastle, 15 slides and more than 160 soakers, water jets, cannons and waterfalls.

Is there a better way to commemorate on Labor Day all those hard working Americans that work hard to bring all these new attractions to life than to visit Orlando Theme Parks and ride out their efforts?
