Universal Hollywood still serving up Holiday Cheer despite COVID-19 restrictions

Universal CityWalk at Universal Studios Hollywood is open to guests despite the theme parks remaining closed. And even as more COVID-19 restrictions are being implemented in LA County, a bit of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is coming to Universal CityWalk for the holidays.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter — Sweets & Treats pop-up is open for take-out orders only. Guests can order traditional cold, frozen and hot Butterbeer options ($8) served in a regular to-go cup or souvenir stein ($14).

This walk-up shop was originally only going to be open on the weekends but is so popular it will now be open daily from noon to 8 pm.

If you’re looking for some holiday merchandise, be sure to check out the Universal Studio Store. You’ll find new Wholiday ornaments ($9.95-$19.95), pajama sets ($24.95-$59.95) and plenty of ornaments from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, including ornaments with the Hogwarts house emblems ($19) and Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin print decorative ribbon ($16.95). There are also new ornaments and special edition holiday sets from The Simpsons ($14.95-$28.95).

Guests can also create their own movie or attraction-specific themed gift bags (reusable bags with various prints are $3) with stuffed animals, clothing, candy, toys and more.

Keep in mind that all guests will have their temperatures checked upon arrival and will need to wear face coverings. Select restaurants are open for to-go orders only.
