From Minions and the Simpsons to magical world of wizardry, Universal Orlando has a way of brining these fantasy characters to life for guests. Now, to the squeals of glee from my daughters, Hello Kitty joins in on the fun.
Recently Universal Orlando announced the opening of the Hello Kitty Shop Featuring Hello Kitty and Friends within Universal Studios Florida. Unlike Universal City Walk that exists outside the parks, you’ll need a theme park ticket to access this new shopping experience.
According to the release, guests will be transported into the fun and colourful world of Hello Kitty. In Hello Kitty Town you’ll find products from some of her famous friends (and hopefully other Sanrio characters like PomPom Purin). Savour a Hello Kitty inspired treat in the Hello Kitty Sweet Yummy Shop like chocolate cupcakes topped with a candy bow. Grab a pair of fuzzy slippers and other gear in the Hello Kitty Lounge and enjoy the fun movie side of Hello Kitty in the Hello Kitty at the Movies section.
The Japanese pavilion in Walt Disney World Epcot is always a must visit spot for shopping, including Hello Kitty. However, by the sounds of it, the new Hello Kitty Shop Featuring Hello Kitty and Friends sounds like a much bigger and more focused shopping experience for fans.
Along with merchandise galore, guests will even have the chance to meet Hello Kitty herself during meet and greet photo moments. Having read Universal’s inside peek at the shop, I can see Instagram filling with many colourful photos from shoppers.
We’ll definitely be adding this to our list of places to visit next time we’re in Universal Orlando.
