U.S. President Donald Trump’s visit to the Universal Studios in Orlando is the first to feature a Thanksgiving Day theme park opening in the United States.
Universal Studios Orlando opened its doors to guests this morning at 10:00 a.m. local time, a day after the president was due to visit.
The park features a Christmas themed area where guests can visit with Santa and play “Silly Symphony” with his family.
“It’s the perfect place for families to come and enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving Day experience,” said David Smith, vice president of entertainment at Universal Studios.
“It’s got a holiday feel to it.
You can walk through the snow and it looks like Christmas trees.”
Smith said guests will be able to bring their own decorations, and guests can also watch the holiday movie.
“We’re working with the family to bring Christmas decorations for families who want to celebrate,” he said.
In addition to the Christmas decorations, the park is open for a day-long Thanksgiving Day event.
Guests will be given a limited edition Christmas tree and will also be able try out the new interactive “Sully” attraction with the theme of Christmas.
“Sully’s not a real Silly Symphony, it’s a more interactive version of Silly Christmas,” Smith said.
“I’m sure it will be a very fun experience for the kids and families,” he added.
There are more than 30 locations in the parks footprint.
“You’ve got to have the holiday spirit, you’ve got the holiday food and it’s got all the ingredients you need for a truly festive day,” Smith added.
Trump’s visit follows a recent trip to Orlando by President Barack Obama.
President Trump will be in New York on Tuesday for the Thanksgiving holiday.
