During the 2023 holiday season at Universal Orlando Resort, guests can purchase a Holiday Tree Hunt map to participate in a self-guided scavenger hunt throughout the theme parks and CityWalk. Maps and pencils are available at retail locations through December 31, 2023, for $13 plus tax.
Holiday Tree Hunt Map & Ornament – $13.00
When purchasing the map, guests also get their Holiday Tree Hunt ornament prize.
The map marks fifteen different locations within Universal Studios Florida, Universal Islands of Adventure, and Universal CityWalk that display themed trees.
The back of the brochure advertises Earl the Squirrel holiday gift tags available at select locations for $4.99.
You don’t actually have to complete the Holiday Tree Hunt to get your ornament. It’s graphite on a twine string.
Earl the Squirrel is pictured on one side with Christmas lights, presents, and snowflakes.
Earl wears a fur-lined trapper hat and red scarf.
The Universal Orlando Resort logo is on the other side of the ornament.
