Along with the parks’ mind-blowing rides and attractions, every day from Dec. 5 through Jan 2, Universal Orlando puts its own unique spin on the holidays. At Universal’s Islands of Adventure®, Seuss Landing™ is transformed into the wintry wonderland of Grinchmas™ featuring a heartwarming live show retelling Dr. Seuss’s classic holiday tale. You’ll even get a chance to meet The Grinch™ himself and explore all of Seuss Landing™ decked out for the Who-lidays.
Next door at Universal Studios Florida®, the Macy’s Holiday Parade™ takes to the streets with colorful balloons and floats direct from the world-famous Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade® in New York City, along with marching bands, clowns and an appearance by Santa Claus. The parade is capped off with a spectacular tree lighting ceremony complete with music and a stunning display of lights.
In addition, Mannheim Steamroller returns on select Saturday and Sunday nights in December. The best-selling holiday artist of all time will perform their signature blend of classical and rock music live in Universal Studios®.
There’s even more excitement in store as the fun of Mardi Gras returns to Universal Studios. On select nights from Feb. 6 to April 16 Universal Orlando throws the biggest party this side of the Big Easy. You can enjoy a dazzling parade with beads by the handful, incredible floats, outrageous street performers, authentic Cajun cuisine, and the biggest names in rock, pop, country, hip hop and more live in concert on the Music Plaza stage.
