As Universal Orlando Resort prepares for the heavily-anticipated arrival of Halloween Horror Nights (HHN) and the Halloween season in general, the Coca-Cola Refresh shop and nearby Cold Drinks stand in Universal Studios Florida are getting in on the festive fun. New Coca-Cola-branded Halloween decor has been added to both locations as the September 1 start date of HHN 32 rapidly approaches.
Halloween Decorations at Coca-Cola Refresh in Universal Studios Florida
The Coca-Cola Refresh station is located in the World Expo section of Universal Studios Florida near the Men in Black Alien Attack attraction. It contains electronic Coca-Cola Freestyle machines that offer a variety of sodas made or owned by The Coca-Cola Company.
A red decal that combines the iconic Coca-Cola bottle with traditional Halloween iconography adorns the store’s entryway. The bright bottle with white typography and outlining is topped with the red silhouette of a cat head. A curled red tail emerges from the bottle’s base, giving the overall image the appearance of a cat.
More Coca-Cola-inspired spooky iconography appears on the windows. The cat/Coke bottle design again appears on the windows in the form of a small red decal, and it’s joined by a symbol that blends the Coca-Cola packaging with a bat.
Additional decals include pumpkins, stars, and curved arches that emulate the entryway of Men in Black Alien Attack. The stickers are distinctly Halloween-themed while also fitting into the retro-futuristic aesthetic of the World Expo section of Universal Studios Florida.
Halloween Decorations at Cold Drinks Stand in Universal Studios Florida
The Cold Drinks stand (which serves various drinks in addition to quick snacks) has also received a Halloween refresh. The iconography present is largely similar to that found on the exterior of the Coca-Cola Refresh shop; the red decals are identical, if not a bit smaller, and the cat/Coca-Cola bottle symbol is also present, this time in black on the stand’s facade.
HHN 32 at Universal Orlando Resort
Universal Orlando Resort celebrates Halloween with the annual Halloween Horror Nights event. HHN 32 commences on September 1, 2023, and runs on select nights through November 4. There will be 10 haunted houses, including:

- Chucky: Ultimate Kill Count
- Universal Monsters: Unmasked
- Dr. Oddfellow’s Twisted Origins
- Dueling Dragons: Choose Thy Fate
- YETI: Campground Kills
- The Darkest Deal
- Bloodmoon: Dark Offerings
There will also be five scare zones:
- Dr. Oddfellow’s Collection of Horror
- Dark Zodiac
- Jungle of Doom: Expedition Horror
- Vamp ’69: Summer of Blood
- Shipyard 32: Horrors Unhinged
Halloween Horror Nights is also offered at Universal Studios Hollywood.
Several decorations have recently appeared around Universal Studios Florida in preparation for Halloween Horror Nights 32. The 2023 Halloween Tribute Store facade was recently installed in the New York section of the park; the store, themed this year to a “mysterious NYC Comic Book Shop,” will open when HHN 32 commences and can be previewed by Annual Passholders on August 30.
Portals have also recently appeared around Universal Studios Florida. They will ultimately indicate the entry points to the haunted houses and will contain house names, wait times, and warnings.
