Running through January 5, 2020, Universal Orlando is transformed with festive décor and exciting entertainment that will elevate your holiday spirit!

Shake it off at Universal’s Holiday Parade featuring Macy’s with your favorite characters and hundreds of performers!

Here is the breakdown of the events across the resort that you cannot miss this season:

Grinchmas at Universal’s Islands of Adventure

The whimsical storytelling Seuss Landing™ is filled with Christmas charm (and mischief). As you take a stroll down the most colorful area in Universal Orlando, be on the lookout for the appearance of Mr. Grinch. The mean one himself might come out for a photo and to throw in some witty sarcasm. Guests can also enjoy Grinchmas Who-Liday Spectacular, the heartwarming live show of the classical holiday tale starred by the Grinch, Max and the Whos from Who-ville.
