Universal Orlando Resort’s Christmas Celebrations

Universal Orlando Resort’s Christmas Celebrations

If you’re visiting Universal Orlando Resort this Winter, be sure not to miss the spectacular events at both Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure.

The fun and festivities will be taking place from December 3rd until January 1st, with something for all the family including live shows, music, amazing festive decor and a huge holiday parade!

Universal Studios Florida

This year Universal Studios Florida is celebrating the 10th Anniversary Macy’s Holiday Parade, with a colour-tastic celebration of floats and balloons direct from the Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York. The parade takes to the streets of Universal Studios every evening with marching bands, clowns, and even an appearance from Santa himself!

What else would you expect at the biggest and best holiday celebrations than an appearance from the biggest-selling Christmas artist of all time? Universal Studios Florida will be coming alive to the sounds of Mannheim Steamroller, performing live onstage on select weekends in December.

You can also enjoy holiday entertainment in the form of the StarToons Holiday Show, dancing to holiday hits with cartoon favourites or sing along with Barney and friends at A Day in the Park with Barney, and be sure not to miss the Blues Brothers performing festive favourites in the snow!

The festivities don’t end there either. If all that celebrating leaves you craving a little quiet time, take a stroll round the Holiday Village which is filled with unique gifts, delicious treats to eat and drink, and fun crafts for the kids. As dusk falls, you can marvel at the dazzling light displays with music and spectacular tree lighting around the village.


Universal’s Islands of Adventure

Universal’s Islands of Adventure is celebrating the holiday season in their own unique way with Grinchmas, as Seuss Landing is transformed into a winter wonderland adorned with festive storybook decor everywhere you look! Various live shows will be taking place starring the Grinch himself, along with the Whos from Whoville and the Wonky Tree Lot.

At the heart of the celebrations is the Grinchmas Wholiday Spectacular, a heartwarming live show starring the Grinch himself and featuring music by Mannheim Steamroller. Youll see your favourite Dr. Seuss characters come to life on and off-stage, and greet Whos from Whoville as they stroll through Seuss Landing, spreading good cheer to one and all.

You can even meet the mean green one himself at The Grinch and Friends Character Breakfast. Have your photo taken with the Grinch, meet all of your favourite characters and create some unforgettable holiday memories from the whimsical world of Grinchmas!
