It's an active week in Orlando theme parks and attractions, even though we're not in the eye of this hurricane.
+ Our long-lasting Halloween celebrations end, with the last evening of Universal's Halloween Horror Nights on Wednesday and the final Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party nights at Magic Kingdom on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. More info: www.halloweenhorrornights.com/orlando and www.disneyworld.com/halloween.
+ There are two more weeks of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, and this week's Eat to the Beat entertainers are Billy Ocean (Monday-Wednesday), .38 Special (Thursday and Friday) and Howard Jones (Saturday and Sunday). HGTV.com's Marianne Canada will appear in the Festival Center Friday-Sunday, speaking on the topic "Handmade Goodies They Won't Regift." These events are included in regular Epcot admission. More info: www.disneyworld.com/foodwine.
+ Universal Studios has invited annual passholders to an announcement at 7:15 p.m. on Thursday. It's widely presumed to be a reveal of what's going on with construction in the park. The email says the announcement can be "viewed from any location around the Universal Studios lagoon."
+ Friday is moving day for space shuttle Atlantis, which will slowly arrive at its new (but under construction) home at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. The attraction has a couple of ticket-package options for the event, which will culminate with evening fireworks. More info: www.kennedyspacecenter.com.
+ Saturday is the Neanderthal Ball, a fundraiser for Orlando Science Center youth programs. Caveman-inspired attire is encouraged. More info: www.OSC.org.Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
