Guests Can Enjoy Grinchmas, Macy’s Holiday Parade December 4 Through January 1

Universal Orlando Resort’s month-long holiday festivities will kick off on December 4 and run through January 1, 2011. The resort’s celebration will include the specially-themed Grinchmas show and Macy’s Holiday Parade.

At Islands of Adventure, the popular Dr. Seuss book “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” is brought to life in Grinchmas, a live stage show featuring an original musical score by Mannheim Steamroller.  During the show, six songs are performed by a live cast, including The Grinch and The Whos from Whoville. As part of the Grinchmas celebration, guests will also have the opportunity to meet The Grinch.

Next door at Universal Studios, the world-renowned balloons and floats from Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade return.  Guests can experience the excitement of the New York City tradition as the Macy’s Holiday Parade cruises through the streets of the park.  In addition to the parade, Universal Studios guests can enjoy performances by marching bands from across the country and a nightly Christmas tree lighting.
