How to snag a selfie with Santa at Universal CityWalk

Much like inside the Universal Studios Hollywood theme park, the holiday season is in full effect at Universal CityWalk. Several giant wreaths are strung with garland and lights up high and in between the shops and restaurants. Hundreds of pretty potted poinsettia arrangements and mini lighted Christmas trees are scattered throughout the various planters. The stationary King Kong photo opp prop is currently sporting its best Santa hat and hanging on tight to a bushel of mistletoe, making it the perfect place to sneak in a kiss and picture with your significant other.

At the center of it all, located just outside of the newly remodeled Universal Cinema, is a ginormous Christmas tree, decked out with more than 200,000 LED lights that are choreographed to the piped in holiday tunes as well as the live musical performances that take over the adjacent 5 Towers stage Fridays through Sundays.
