VIDEO: Universal Holidays Tribute Store Sneak Peek
The holidays kick off at Universal Orlando tomorrow (November 14 – January 3, 2021) and we have your exclusive sneak peek inside the highly anticipated Universal Holidays Tribute Store! In just two weeks Universal has been able to transform the space from the Halloween Horror Nights Tribute Store to magical winter wonderland I’m about to show you.
The Universal Holidays Tribute Store includes four colorfully themed rooms where you’ll find a dazzling display of Holiday-themed merchandise and tasty goodies available for sale.
You’ll walk into the entrance of the store and the first thing that you’ll see is what appears to be a toy maker’s bench. It looks as if the builder just stepped away for a hot cup of cocoa while letting the paint dry on a few almost completed projects.
When entering the first room you’ll be greeted by a life size toy soldier. The back wall even has a winter wonderland depicted with animated falling snow in the background. The room is full of ornaments, stuffed animals, and apparel on display for sale. Lighted garland is draped across the display cases which really sets the mood. In the center of the room you’ll also notice a rotating display of children decorating their tree.
The second room is Grinch themed! A large Christmas tree dominates the center of the room with a mountain of presents being unloaded by the back wall by the Grinch himself! You’ll also spy in the corner his dog Max showing off his antler. There’s also an animated Whoville fireplace roaring to life. Of course, here you’ll find all of the perfect Dr. Suess themed presents for the Thing 1 and Thing 2 in your life. This room also contains the machine that allows you to build your very own Snowman wax figurine!
To reach room number three of the Universal Holidays Tribute Store you’ll take a quick walk down a Christmas poster lined hallway.
To reach a Harry Potter themed wonderland! The decorations aren’t quite in your face as the last two rooms. Instead it’s decorated with softly glowing trees of different hues. Potter fans will be able to stock up on apparel and gifts for the Muggles back home or items fitting for any student heading back to Hogwarts after the Winter Holiday.
The fourth and final room of the Universal Holidays Tribute Store is Earl the Squirrel’s Tree Farm! In this room they are “NUTZ about trees”. Trees of every size and shape line the room decorated in brilliant Christmas lights. Here guests will find all of the seasonal treats and goodies. There are booths set up that display signs such as:
- Earl the Squirrel’s Hot Chocolate Bombz & Earl’s Nutty Nog
- Earl’s Sticky Buns & Sugared Nutz
- Earl’s Delicious Holiday Gummy Lightz
- Earl’s Sweet Treatz
Here ‘s your full walk through of the whole experience:
