The Holidays at Universal Orlando Resort are just around the corner, and Universal has revealed the food and beverage options guests can enjoy during the Holiday season; including some new dining experiences.
From November 16, 2019 to January 5, 2020, Universal Studios Florida, Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Universal CityWalk will offer a variety of tasty options for guests to indulge in.
Universal will be offering a traditional Holidays meal of a mixed green salad, herb-roasted turkey, cornbread stuffing, roasted potatoes, sautéed & steamed vegetables, served with a flaky-crusted apple pie for dessert. The Holiday meal will be available at Classic Monsters Café in Universal Studios and Thunder Falls Terrace in Islands of Adventure. Voodoo Doughnut in CityWalk will offer a “Stuffed Santa Suit” doughnut set – which are yeast doughnuts dipped in Vanilla icing; one filled with Bavarian & white chocolate topped with Coconut, the other filled with peppermint chocolate cream. Breadbox will also be serving a “Not Your Normal Leftover” Holiday Sandwich
Over in Islands of Adventure, guests can find Grinchmas chocolate cupcakes in Seuss Landing – decorated to look like the Grinch, himself. Of course, Hot Butterbeer has returned to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter for the season.
Elsewhere around the Resort, festive holiday pastries, such as an Apple Strudel on a stick, Christmas tree eclairs and holiday “wreaths” can be found in the San Francisco Bakery and TODAY Cafe in Universal Studios Florida and Croissant Moon Bakery in Universal’s Islands of Adventure.
Guests looking for “the booze” are in luck, as specialty cocktails will also be available; offering twists on the unique flavors of the season, such as the Apple Pie on the Rocks, Apple Cider Irish Mule, and Cranberry Margarita. CityWalk will also be offering some limited-time beverages, including the “Gingerbread Mon’” at Bob Marley’s, the “Snow Globe” at Pat O’ Brien’s, as well as a variety of other seasonal mixed drink offerings throughout the complex. For non-alcoholic options, Frozen Eggnog and Frozen Candy Cane beverages can be found at several food stands located around Universal Studios Florida.
