Universal Orlando has been transformed into a holiday spectacular! Right now when you visit the park (and Islands of Adventure!) you can see twinkling lights, holiday shows, the Macy's parade, and more!
From December 7th- January 4th Universal's Islands of Adventure® will transform its Seuss Landing™ area into the whimsical world of Grinchmas. Be sure to explore every nook and cranny of this wintry wonderland, as its filled with special touches Dr. Seuss fans are sure to adore.
The Grinchmas Wholiday Spectacular:
The centerpiece of our celebration is a heartwarming live show starring The Grinch™, and featuring music recorded by Mannheim Steamroller. See characters come to brilliant life both onstage and off, as Whos from Who-ville stroll through Seuss Landing, ready to say hello and spread good cheer.
Who wouldn’t want to reminisce about their heartwarming moments meeting The Grinch? Alright, perhaps “heartwarming” isn’t the right description. Maybe “hilarious,” or “spectacularly sarcastic?” Either way, this is your chance to get his autograph, shake his furry hand, and have your photo taken with him. It’s the perfect memento for those who like to do holidays their own way.
Want to get even more up close and personal with your favorite Dr. Seuss characters? Start the day with The Grinch & Friends Character Breakfast in Circus McGurkus Cafe Stoo-pendous™, a circus-themed eatery where strange creatures perform and acrobats twirl high overhead.
Dig into a delicious hearty breakfast hosted by the maven of mischief from Mt. Crumpit himself, The Grinch. Don’t worry, it’s perfectly acceptable to laugh with your mouth full!
Tickets and reservations are required to attend so make sure you book ahead of time. It's a priceless holiday memory you'll never forget. And you’ll have the photos to prove it!

The Macy's Holiday Parade:
For many of us, The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade® is a TV tradition this time of year. But most of us will never see it in person…or will we? Once the legendary New York City parade ends, many of its breathtaking balloons and floats are sent straight to us, for Universal Studios Florida’s very own holiday spectacular featuring marching bands, clowns, and an appearance from Santa himself! Afterwards, enjoy the spectacular tree lighting ceremony with music and a dazzling display of lights!
