Universal’s Holiday Experience Featuring Macy’s Balloons takes place inside a soundstage in the park’s New York Area. It is a walk-through experience with physically distancing practices enforced. Reservations are not required, but if demand is high enough a virtual queue via Universal Orlando’s app can be instituted to help ensure distancing is maintained.
