When you enter the Universal Studios, make sure to grab a park map. It has the times listed for the Superstar Parade as well as its route. Parade times may vary, so be sure to check your park map that day. The Superstar Parade kicks off in Hollywood on Embracadero Street, located near the Louie’s Restaurant. The route travels down 5th Avenue past Revenge of the Mummy, turning onto 57th Avenue/Plaza of the Stars.
