Universal’s Macy Holiday Parade

You will be delighted by the marching bands, clowns, and from the jolly man himself; Santa Claus will make his appearance for all the children. Afterwards, enjoy the magnificent tree lighting ceremony with music and a glittering display of lights! Universal Studios Florida has been bringing Macy’s Holiday Parade down to Orlando for a post-Thanksgiving encore every December for over a decade.

The Grinch is right at home at Universal Orlando’s holiday event in the Seuss Landing section of Islands of Adventure. In addition to scoring a private audience with the reformed “mean one,” visitors can see The Grinch and his newfound Whoville buddies present The Grinchmas Wholiday Spectacular. Make sure you get a chance to see the live performance of the star of the show, The Grinch™, and get your picture taken with the mean green character himself!
