PHOTOS, VIDEO: Tour the NEW Universal’s Holiday Experience featuring Macy’s Balloons Walkthrough and See Santa in a Face Mask at Universal Studios Florida

Merry Christmas from Universal Orlando Resort! A slew of holiday happenings have just begun the resort, but we’ll start off with likely one of the coolest: the NEW Universal’s Holiday Experience featuring Macy’s Balloons experience.

In this festive walk-through experience, you’ll get closer than ever to larger-than-life Macy’s balloons and colorful Christmas floats, including some featuring characters from DreamWorks Animation’s Shrek movies and Madagascar franchise, along with the Minions from Illumination’s Despicable Me. You can even get a photo with Santa himself, wearing a face mask, of course. Get ready to smile because it’s one great holiday photo op after another!

A Virtual Line will be in place for the first few days of the experience, but if you arrive early enough like we did (think 7:30/8:00 AM), you can line up normally via a standby queue.

You’ll find the entrance to the left of Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon, in Production Central. Just follow the Christmas trees!
