PHOTOS: Full Guide to the 2020 Holiday Tree Hunt at Universal Orlando Resort (Map, Ornament, and Every Tree!)
We’ve seen incredibly themed Christmas trees go up all over Universal Orlando Resort in the past few weeks, but the day is finally here! Today marks the official start of the holiday season at Universal, and we’re on a hunt… for Christmas trees, that is! Different themed Christmas trees can be found throughout the parks (and CityWalk) as part of the Holiday Tree Hunt, which kicks off today and runs through January 3, 2021.
Holiday Tree Hunt 2020 Map
You can pick up a Holiday Tree Hunt map/brochure at any of the Holiday Tree Hunt locations.
The price is $9.95 plus tax, per brochure.
The map comes in a gold drawstring bag for you to hold your ornament, once you get it.
You can then present your Holiday Tree Hunt brochure to a Team Member located at each participating location to receive a stamp on brochure.
The brochure indicates the location of sixteen (16) themed trees at participating locations within Universal Studios Florida, Universal’s Islands of Adventure, and Universal CityWalk.
Here’s the ornament you receive upon completing the tree hunt!
Present your brochure by January 3, 2021 at the Universal Studios Store in CityWalk, Park Plaza Holiday Shop at Universal Studios, or Port of Entry Christmas Shoppe at Islands of Adventure to receive one (1) ornament selected by Universal Orlando Resort.
Best of all, you don’t need to obtain any actual tree stamps to redeem the ornament—running around the park for tree is just part of the fun!
