If you are in Universal Orlando today make sure to stop by the Tribute Store today to check out the brand new Beetlejuice section and the new treat section of the store located in the New York section of the park.
Normally the Tribute store is about Halloween Horror Nights and reflects those properties, but since the houses were canceled this year they tried to make the store feel more like the rooms in the houses. Beetlejuice was supposed to be one of the houses in this year’s event. Sadly we can’t see this now, but Universal Orlando did try to integrate it into the store so you can still get some kind of Beetlejuice experience.
In this new section you can participate in a photo opportunity of the model cemetary where we first see Beetlejuice as well as seeing Beetlejuice in his famous snake form. According to the Orlando Sentinel, this character “…activates on a stairwell every 30 seconds and the waiting room, which doubles as the check-out counter for Tribute Store.”
They even have the waiting room:
Here’s a video of the new area posted by The Schmoofs on Youtube!
I can’t tell you how cool this is! Watch the video.
My daughter is a huge Beetlejuice fan. Her birthday theme is even going to be Beetlejuice this year. Maybe we can get some inspiration from the other new addition to the Tribute Store, the treat section.
Universal has added a special treat section to the store as well.
Here’s what the Orlando Sentinel posted about it:
“There’s a recurring, spooky vibe in the selection, including red velvet blood splatter cake pops, Frankenstein-theme treats, lime slime and “beating heart sour gummies.” There’s also a collection of large, Halloween-themed doughnuts. The prices are mainly in the $4.69 to $7.99 range.”
The new treat section was a stock room but they decided to put this sweet surprise inside.
I think this is a fantastic idea!
Of course there will be some merchandise:
Keep in mind that there are social-distancing guidelines in the store, just like everywhere else in the park. Capacity will also be limited but there is a queue area you can wait in for your turn.
This is so much fun!
