In addition to the incredible rides at Universal Resort, there are also some great souvenirs! Make sure you remember the best parts of your trip by taking home something special as a keepsake. Here are some of our ideas from within the parks to inspire you...
Guaranteed to go down well with any Harry Potter fan, the chocolate frog is a crucial part of any Wizard’s diet, making its appearance early on in the first Harry Potter movie. At Universal you can buy an exact replica of the tasty treat that you see the character’s enjoying.
The frog shaped piece of solid milk chocolate is presented in the purple pentagonal box that you’re familiar with, with an intricate gold design. Hidden underneath the chocolate frog is your very own wizard card. The front displays an image of a famous witch or wizard, and on the back their story is told.

One of Universal’s best sellers are Despicable Me Minion plush toys. Outside the Minion Mayhem ride, there is a gift shop (called Super Silly Stuff) filled with all things Minion. The adorable cuddly toys are most popular, and are sure to go down well with younger guests.
You can also take home a Unicorn pillow plush, ideal for kids to rest their heads after a long day exploring the park. There are so many different characters to choose from, it’ll be hard to leave with just one!

Probably the cheapest souvenir you can get in Orlando, transform a simple 1 cent coin into a souvenir that you can keep forever. Insert your coin into the machine and watch as it is embossed with a unique design. Choose from your favourite character, theme park or date to commemorate your trip.
There are around 29 penny machines in Universal’s Islands of adventure, 23 in Universal Studios and plenty in CityWalk too. Characters include Spiderman, SpongeBob, Betty Boop, Jurassic Park dinosaurs, Shrek, The Simpsons and many more. You can even purchase a penny collectors book to hold all of your precious coins.

The Big Pink Doughnut:
Even though this doesn’t really count as a souvenir, it’s still something worth taking home (aka your hotel room) at the end of a long day at the parks. That's if you can last that long! Enjoy one of Homer’s favourite snacks with this delicious sprinkled doughnut.
This confectionary masterpiece has a creamy pink frosting, and can even be served as part of a D’oh-Nut Sundae special, with choices of caramel, hot fudge and Oreo toppings. Absolutely huge, it’s ideal for sharing!
