Universal Studios Orlando is trying out something new and exciting for guests!
Orlando Informer has reported that Universal is offering personal in-park photoshoots for guests through their in-house photographers. This pricey service is in the trial and testing phase right now, so if you are interested and want to take advantage of this unique opportunity during your trip to Universal, be sure and head right to the Photography Store inside the park!
This service is currently only being offered at Universal Studios, not at Islands of Adventure just yet!
The report says:
Starting today, Universal is experimenting with an interesting add-on for its My Universal Photos service: you can book an hour-long “focused and fun” session with one of the company’s photographers, who will take you to a specific location in Universal Studios Florida and snap as many photos of you and your party as you’d like (within that time frame, of course)…the sole photo location is within the New York backlot (in Sting Alley, the highly themed alleyway that lets out at where Transformers: The Ride – 3D sits); all pics can be previewed inside Universal Studios, but you’ll still need to download them from Universal’s website after the fact; and the hour-long window doesn’t include the walk to and from the photography spot. We should also take a quick moment and talk about the availability of this Instagram-worthy offer, which seems to be rather tentative at this point; there is a set limit of sessions per day, which will ultimately be determined by the level of demand that Universal sees for its new item. This means that, for the time being, you can book the day-of, but this could very well change in the near future.
The pricing is rather tricky for this special photoshoot add-on. It can be $99 if you have already purchased into Universal’s in-park photo package. If you originally opted out of this service, will need to purchase the 3-day “My Universal Photos” digital package for $199 and your session will be included in that cost.
We hope Universal sees success with this photoshoot opportunity as we would love to see them extend the offering into the Wizarding World of Harry Potter!
