Spooky treats and festive eats have made an appearance all across Universal Orlando Resort. Halloween Horror Nights may be cancelled (we are still mourning the loss), but Halloween is still very much alive at the parks. To get your horror fix, you can visit the themed Tribute Store, walk through two daytime haunted houses or snack on some of the many haunted bites available now throughout the resort. Here is our Foodie’s Guide to Halloween at Universal Orlando Resort 2020.
Foodie’s Guide to Halloween at Universal Orlando Resort 2020
HHN Icon cocktails celebrating some of horror’s very best are available at select on-site Universal Orlando Resort hotels. Try The Director, made with Ketel One Vodka, Kahlua, Amaretto and Heavy Cream. Or, take a chance on The Chance, featuring Bacardi Superior Rum, Aperol, Sour, orange bitters, soda and an orange slice. Both HHN Icon cocktails are available at the Velvet Bar and Beach Club at Hard Rock Hotel Orlando, Bula at Loews Royal Pacific Resort, the Swizzle Lounge at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort and the Sand Bar at Universal’s Endless Summer Resort – Surfside Inn and Suites.
This year, CityWalk’s Voodoo Doughnuts is selling two Halloween-themed treats. The “Jack” Doughnut (pictured below) is filled with sweet raspberry Bavarian cream. You can also try the enormous Pumpkin Spice Specialty Doughnut, which features a pumpkin spice filling that is deliciously reminiscent of homemade pumpkin pie.
Skeleton Bar in Cafe La Bamba
Head to Cafe La Bamba in Universal Studios Florida for a new Halloween themed bar experience. Choose between three cocktails: the Mango Inferno, the Lou-Garou and the Vampires Curse. Non-alcoholic drinks, like the Frozen Candy Corn are available at the Skeleton Bar as well. You can also find a variety of themed food, like the Bloody Charred Tandoori Skewer, Vegan Jack’D Up Mac and Screamin’ For S’mores Fries. For the Halloween Horror Nights classic Pizza Fries, you’ll have to head over to Louie’s Italian Restaurant.
Dylan & Cal’s Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread is available now at TODAY Cafe in Universal Studios Florida, but only for a limited time. These new seasonal baked goods are fluffy and light, and as tasty as you’d imagine. But, our favorite part is definitely the adorable fall shapes on each piece of bread, from festive pumpkins to squirrels.
You can order more horror-themed snacks at the food trucks located near the two haunted houses in Universal Studios. Some of our foodie favorites include the Twisted Coil Taters, Franken Fried Chicken, Funnel Brains and foot-long hot dogs. Menu items rotate, so be sure to stop by on your next visit to see if any exciting new Halloween treats are available.
HHN Tribute Store
The Halloween Horror Nights Tribute Store is always a must-visit during the Halloween season. This year, you can stroll through rooms themed to Frankenstein’s Monster, HHN Icons like Jack the Clown, a creepy attic and the cult-favorite Beetlejuice. In the Beetlejuice room, a monstrous variety of treats and desserts are available to purchase. Choose from Vegan Brownie Skulls to Beating Heart Sour Cherry Gummies, or even a striped sandworm-themed hot dog. There are so many spooky bites to choose from, you’ll have a hard time picking a favorite.
This year, guests of all ages are encouraged to wear their favorite Halloween costumes while visiting Universal Orlando Resort, to fully embrace the spooky season. All-new interactive activities have been introduced as well, like the Scarecrow Stalk and trick-or-treating at Islands of Adventure.
