PHOTOS: NEW Display Windows Appear for Universal’s Holiday Experience featuring Macy’s Balloons at Universal Studios Florida

Just days before the Macy’s balloons walk-through experience opens at Universal Studios Florida, two new displays featuring maquettes of some of the characters guests will see has arrived in the New York section of the park.


The caption in the bottom left corner of the display describes the experience and where the entrance will be located, near Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon.


The half-inch scale maquettes are paired with a while model which shows the balloon seams.


In this display, you can see some of Donkey’s children from Shrek decked out in their holiday best.


In the second window, one of the Minions from Despicable Me appears in a seasonal sweater, along with a Madagascar-inspired blimp and a teddy bear balloon.


Let’s take a closer look at these models!


That blimp looks like it’s ready for a holiday of jungle fun!


Here, the white model shows us the patches of fabric that make up the balloon.


A coat of paint later, and you can see what the finished product will look like!


That teddy bear in a stocking must mean Santa Claus is almost here!


The patches on the balloon of Donkey’s child are far more intricate, if the pencil lines are any indication.


In just a few days’ time, guests will be looking like this happy family.


In lieu of a traditional parade this year, this brand new walk-through experience at Universal Studios will get you closer than ever to larger-than-life Macy’s balloons and colorful Christmas floats, including some featuring characters from Shrek and Madagascar, along with the Minions from Illumination’s Despicable Me. There’s never been a better chance to get your photo with these beloved giant balloons. Santa Claus himself will be there to pose for photos as well.
