Cinnabon Breakfast Sandwiches, Mardi Gras Treats, Holiday Weekend Crowds, and More: Universal Orlando Resort Photo Report 2/17/22

It’s another fantastic day here at the Universal Orlando Resort. We know it’s going to be a busy holiday weekend ahead, but we’re ready for it! Let’s see what’s new today.

But first, a stop into Cinnabon for a breakfast sandwich. A bacon, egg, and cheese on a cinnamon roll is just what we needed to get us ready for the day.

A new throne photo op for Bel-Air has arrived in CityWalk.

Someone has crowned the HHN Bear the king of Mardi Gras! And rightfully so.

This Mardi Gras kitchen towel for $12 matches the apron perfectly.

Construction walls were recently set up around the side of the former Shrek 4-D location, and now a few fun movie posters have been added around the sides.

Popcorn prices have gone up around the parks. A souvenir bucket full of popcorn is now $12.29.

Just a quick stop into the Southeast Asia booth for some Rou Jia Mo. This is one of our favorite items from Mardi Gras this year, so don’t miss out.

The newest Hogwarts House shirts recently debuted, and we finally found Ravenclaw one inside the Islands of Adventure Trading Company. Check out the complete collection, including youth styles, in our post here.

Crescent Moon Bakery at the front of Islands of Adventure has a Mardi Gras Petit Cake and Mardi Gras Praline Cheesecake available. We can’t wait to try that beautiful looking cheesecake!

The Port of Entry Christmas Shoppe has gotten a new centerpiece. The wooden Christmas display that was recently in the center was originally from the 2020 Holiday Tribute Store. You may recognize this new display from the first room of the 2021 Holiday Tribute Store. The naughty and nice list is even on display.

An hour wait for Spider-Man? No thanks.

The Boutique in Marvel Super Hero Island recently turned into a character meet and greet location. The “boutique” sign above the entrance now reads “photos” instead.

As we made our way into Toon Lagoon, we spotted the Universal Studios Frankenstein pillow prize available again. This is one of our favorite prizes from last Halloween.

Lots of repairs and general maintenance are currently happening around Toon Lagoon.

Get ready for a busy holiday weekend! Wait times have been high around the parks today, and it’s only Thursday.

The digital wait time sign for High in the Sky Seuss Trolley Train Ride has gotten an upgrade.

That’s all for this visit to the Universal Orlando Resort. Thanks for joining us around the parks today. Be sure to stay tuned for more updates from the parks and all the latest Universal news!
