Thing 1 and thing 2 Universal Orlando Resort Character sightings 2021

Universal is FULL of Character sightings across both theme parks! During the past couple of weeks we saw some great opportunities for photos with some of your favorite Universal and IP characters.

Here are just a few you may get to see on your next visit to Universal Orlando!

Right in the heart of central park at Universal Studios you may see some favorite characters from the Dreamworks Animation’s Trolls Franchise!

At the edge of Central Park, Scooby’s fearless gang hangs out in the small courtyard, I feel like in this picture we had been talking about “catapulting.” Such a silly bunch!

While the indoor meet- and-greet is no longer open, there is still an opportunity to see some SpongeBob characters in front of their store! We had seen Sponge himself saying hello to his guests, as well as Patrick and Squidward, pictured here!

All of these character sightings and experiences are randomized to avoid crowding in any one particular area, but when we say they are everywhere, we mean it! Unless it is raining or they have another weather related setback, they are out and about all day. There to wave, say hi and take photos with you!

What do you say Insiders? Are you ready to return back to the parks and see some of your favorite characters and ride your favorite rides?
