New Holiday Food & Beverage Options at Universal Orlando Resort


There are only a few things I love more than food, especially when the holidays come around. When I learned about the new festive food and drinks coming to Universal Orlando Resort, I was first in line to volunteer as a taste tester! I loved the variety of options and holiday flavors you could get, with some being almost too cute to eat.

Here’s a guide to all the new bites and sips you can find throughout the parks now through Jan. 6.

Holiday Treats

Red Velvet Yule Log at Universal Orlando Resort

My favorite sweet I got to try was the Red Velvet Yule Log. The cream cheese frosting was heavenly. Grab a slice from Croissant Moon Bakery in Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Beverly Hills Boulangerie and San Francisco Pastry Company in Universal Studios Florida.

Apple Pie on a Stick at Universal Orlando Resort

Take your grandma’s apple strudel hot from the oven and put it on a stick with a drizzle of frosting. Pick one up at Croissant Moon Bakery in Islands of Adventure and Beverly Hills Boulangerie and San Francisco Pastry Company in Universal Studios.

Additional treats include these cute reindeer cupcakes, waffles on a stick, cheesecakes, ribbon pastries and a variety of classic sugar cookies. You can find these in multiple locations throughout the parks.

Festive Sips

You can’t enjoy all the holiday food without something to wash it all down with. Here are a few of my favorite new holiday drinks this year.
