Saturdays are now going to be an extremely special time to visit Universal Orlando Resort because they have decked the halls at a highly-themed Holiday Tribute Store! We all know they did a fantastic job with the Halloween Horror Nights Tribute Store, and we can expect nothing less from them for a holiday-themed store.
The store features four highly-themed rooms:
- Santa’s Workshop
- Earl the Squirrel’s Christmas Curious Museum & Emporium
If you’re wondering who Earl the Squirrel is, News 6 spoke with Universal about the character last year:
“So many years ago, there was a power outage in our tall tree out here in front of Macy’s. And some people say Earl was in there chewing on a cord, and he knocked out some of the lights. Other people will say he was just trying to get up to the top of the tree to see more of the Christmas decorations and disconnecting a lot. I don’t know what happened. But a squirrel caused a power outage in our tree,” said Rob Cametti, director of visual merchandising and store design.

The Holiday Tribute Store is located in the New York area of the park near the “Revenge of the Mummy” and will be open during normal park hours. This is perfect store to shop in while at Universal Studios Orlando this holiday season as they have merchandise options perfect for holiday gifts including ornaments, shirts and hoodies, mugs, plush characters and more. Happy shopping Insiders!
