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.
