Photos: Universal Orlando Brings Holiday Magic to MCO with Holiday Pop Up Shop

The holiday season is here not just at Universal Orlando Resort but also now at the Orlando International Airport (MCO) where a holiday pop up shop featuring Earl the Squirrel is now open.

  • Located in Terminal B (prior to heading through security), the new store invites guests to shop some of Universal Orlando’s holiday merchandise as the holiday icon Earl the Squirrel welcomes everyone to “Earl-lando.”

  • Inside, guests are welcomed by a giant squirrel statue as well as holiday decorations and dozens of references to Earl the Squirrel and even Gerg the Llama.

  • And of course there is plenty of festive holiday merchandise available in the new shop. You can see some of Universal Orlando’s holiday merchandise (and food) here.
