From Dec. 3 through Jan. 1, adults and children alike can marvel at majestic balloons, hear electrified holiday classics and discover the holiday cheer of Who-ville with Holidays at Universal Orlando Resort.
Check out how we’re decking the halls with one-of-a-kind heartwarming traditions returning this year:
15th ANNIVERSARY OF MACY’S HOLIDAY PARADE
Let your heart take flight at Universal Studios Florida for the 15th anniversary of Macy’s Holiday Parade, where larger-than-life balloons from the famous Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City fill the streets every afternoon. New to this year’s parade is the “Virginia” of “Yes, Virginia there is a Santa” balloon, which will join the popular “Macy’s Star” and “Big Man Santa” balloons.
GRINCHMAS IN SEUSS LANDING
At Universal’s Islands of Adventure, come face-to-face with the mean, green one himself as Grinchmas comes to life throughout Seuss Landing. Discover the true meaning of Christmas in a heartwarming live show, “Grinchmas Who-liday Spectacular,” featuring The Grinch, Max and the Whos from Who-ville. See park map for daily showtimes.
You can kick start your day of holiday cheer by dining with The Grinch and Friends during a delicious holiday breakfast buffet on Dec. 3-4, 8-11, 15-18 and 21-25.
SWEET SOUNDS OF MANNHEIM STEAMROLLER
On select nights, the masters of modern Christmas music – Mannheim Steamroller – return with the sounds of the holiday season at Universal Studios Florida. Performances will take place on the Music Plaza Stage on Dec. 3, 4, 10, 11, 17 and 18.
I don’t know about you, but my foot is already tapping to “Carol of the Bells”.
The festivities continue at our five on-site hotels—including the all-new Loews Sapphire Falls Resort, which is celebrating its first holiday. The spirit of the season flows freely at the on-site hotels with festive decor, tree-lighting ceremonies, Thanksgiving, Christmas Day and New Year’s holiday buffets, plus special family-friendly events to ring in 2017.
EVE AT UNIVERSAL CITYWALK
Speaking of ringing in 2017, the holidays wouldn’t be complete without a spectacular New Year’s Eve party. Featuring Orlando’s largest dance floor, endless entertainment and all-you-can-eat gourmet cuisine, Universal CityWalk’s electrifying Eve celebrationis the perfect way to ring in the New Year!
