Celebrate Thanksgiving this November at Universal Orlando Resort.

Universal Orlando’s on-site hotels will host a variety of events, including holiday buffets, live entertainment, tree-lighting ceremonies at Holiday Harbor Nights and more. The hotels will also host a community-wide volunteer event on Saturday, Nov. 24 to put together 425,000 meals for Feeding Children Everywhere – a local charity that helps to assemble healthy meals for hungry children.

Of that total amount of meals, 325,000 will benefit children in Central Florida, and 100,000 will be sent to the Florida Panhandle for hurricane relief.
