Milestone at Universal Orlando

Last week marked a milestone at Universal Orlando in which many a toast were made. They celebrated the sale of 5 million butterbeers! The nonalcoholic beverage featuring hints of butterscotch and shortbread made its debut when the Wizarding World of Harry Potter opened within the Orlando attraction in June of 2010.

Even if you are not a fan of beer, sweet drinks, or even Harry Potter, this is a must-try element to experience when visiting this Orlando theme park. Universal Orlando made the announcement on Wednesday, then gave away 1,000 foam-topped beverages to Island of Adventure guests. That’s a lot of butterbeer mustaches!

Orlando Tourist Tip: Bring a little extra cash and try this beverage experience. If you aren’t certain you’ll care for the taste, buy one and have everyone in your group sample it before purchasing a mug for everyone. If you want to find it somewhere else, you may need to use your magic wand. Cheers!
