Beginning on 7th December and running until 4th January, families can create lifelong memories during Universal Orlando Resort’s Holidays celebration. Ages one to 92 can come face-to-face with The Grinch at Grinchmas, watch larger-than-life balloons float through the streets during the Macy’s Holiday Parade and hear Christmas music sensation, Mannheim Steamroller, perform beloved holiday classics with a modern twist.
At Universal’s Islands of Adventure, families will fill with Christmas cheer as Grinchmas comes to life throughout Seuss Landing. Guests will smile from ear-to-ear during the heart-warming live show, “Grinchmas Wholiday Spectacular”, featuring The Grinch and the Whos from Who-ville, accompanied by an original musical score by Mannheim Steamroller. Guests can also meet The Grinch and the Whos daily and, on selected dates, enjoy a special breakfast with the characters.
At Universal Studios Florida, the Macy’s Holiday Parade will fill the streets every evening with the same larger-than-life balloons seen in the famous New York City parade. Guests will also enjoy colourful holiday characters, fantasy-filled floats and a tree-lighting ceremony by Father Christmas.
The masters of modern Christmas music, Mannheim Steamroller, will also return this year. With more than 40 million albums sold worldwide, the musical group will take to the Music Plaza stage in Universal Studios six nights this year to perform their festive hits. Performance nights are 7th, 8th, 14th, 15th, 21st and 22nd December.
