One family attending is the Dressel family. Caleb Dressel is a Universit Florida graduate who is heading to the Tokyo Olympics for swimming. Wesh 2 News caught up with Caleb’s mother, Christina to talk about the Universal Orlando trip:
“They are offering you two flights, two passes to get into the watch party and I think it’s two or three passes to Universal for four days, they’re doing it in waves so you get 4 days of watching your kid swim,”
“I’m getting all my red, white and blue stuff, and family is flying in and we are ready to cheer him on Team USA,”
We have discussed how you can celebrate and watch the Olympics at both Universal Studios Orlando, and Universal Studios Hollywood. Check out that guide to the Olympics here.
