Christmas is starting now! Much like myself and countless others who begin celebrating the Holiday season at the beginning of November, so do the Orlando theme parks. With 21 days left until Christmas, you find yourself trying to get in the Holiday spirit and we are doing just that! From the Disney theme parks to Universal Studios and more, there’s no shortage of Holiday celebrations to be enjoyed during your Winter visit to Orlando. Though there is plenty to experience beyond the Orlando theme parks, we are going to show you how to celebrate the Holiday season here at Universal Studios!
HOLIDAY TREE HUNT
Whether you’re into a good treasure hunt, holiday fun, or a combination of both, the Holiday Tree Hunt at Universal Studios could be perfect for you. To begin your Holiday Tree Hunt, you will purchase the special brochure at any of the Holiday Tree Hunt locations and it will lead you on a quest to find decorated trees all around Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, and Universal’s City Walk. These special brochures are for purchase at $9.95 plus tax. The map comes in a gold drawstring bag for you to hold your ornaments, once you find them of course. These brochures indicate the location of 16 themed trees at participating locations around Universal Studios. Once you’ve visited each tree and found the ornaments you can then present your Holiday Tree Hunt brochure to a Team Member located at each participating location to receive a stamp on your brochure. You can also present your brochure by January 3, 2021 at the Universal Studios Store in Citywalk, Shop at Universal Studios, or Park Plaza Holiday to receive 1 ornament selected by Universal Orlando Resort. Now go and embark on your Journey to find all of the hidden ornaments!
HOLIDAY TREAT TRAIL
The Holiday Treat Trail is available from now through January 3, 2021. If you would like to embark yourself upon a magical realm of Holiday Treats, just pick up a Holiday Treat Trail brochure from a participating location. The brochure you have to acquire is free but you must purchase all 5 qualifying treats at select venues within Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure and Universal Citywalk. Once you’ve tasted each amazing Holiday treat, present your brochure to a Team Member at the time of your purchase to receive a stamp on your brochure. Once you’ve finished your magical journey of your Treat Trail, present your completed brochure by January 3, 2021 at The Watering Hole in Islands of Adventure or Silver Screen Coke in Universal Studios to receive 1 completion treat!
HOLIDAY PARADE FLOAT WALK-THROUGH EXPERIENCE
If you’re looking for Christmas Balloons, themed fun, and colorful Christmas lights, you’ve come to the right place. Universal’s Holiday Experience lets you experience a festive walk-through where you’ll get closer than ever to larger-than-life Macy’s balloons and colorful Christmas floats. Throughout this amazing walk-through they will also be featuring characters from DreamWorks Animation’s Shrek Movies and Madagascar franchise, as well as the Minions from Illuminations Despicable Me. At the end of your walk-through you can even get a picture with Santa himself.
