The holidays are just around the corner and Universal Orlando will soon transform for the season. As we creep closer to the final day of the Halloween Horror Nights Tribute Store, it appears as though someone has stopped by to leave a few packages on the counter. The entrance to the Halloween Horror Nights Tribute Store now has a small stack of packages on the counter, all from Earl.
There are three packages on the counter, each one from Earl the Squirrel. One is wrapped in brown paper, another has a red truck with a Christmas tree in the back, and the final one is bright red with holly on it.
There’s a shiny red package for Martha from Earl. This is most likely a reference to Martha May from the Grinchmas Who-liday Spectacular. Another package is addressed to Gerg from Earl. The final package on the counter is partially covered by the red package for Marth, but we can read some of the label.
“From: Earl” and “Ship to Hollywood” are visible on the bottom box. Earlier this year, the Tribute Store moved to Hollywood for the Mardi Gras season and the Jurassic Park 30th Anniversary. The Halloween Horror Nights Tribute Store returned to New York for 2023, but the Holiday Tribute Store will be back in the Hollywood section. This will be the first year the Holiday Tribute Store will be in Hollywood, too. Take a look at last year’s Holiday Tribute Store in New York in our post here.
Passing through what is currently the Dark Zodiac scare zone for Halloween Horror Nights 32, we spotted the first sign of the Holiday Tribute Store in Hollywood. A large metal truss has been added around the Studio Styles location that will be the entrance for the Holiday Tribute Store. This frame will be used for the facade, which we expect will be up soon.
The holidays at Universal Orlando start on November 17 and run through December 31, 2023. The Holiday Tribute Store will be open for Annual Passholder previews starting November 9 at 11 a.m. Typically, the Tribute Store is open to the public the following day.
