I've been telling you all about the Holiday celebrations around town, but the celebrations at Universal Studios Hollywood are like no other. When you visit Universal Studios from now until January 3rd, during select dates you can join in on the Who-liday celebrations in Universal Plaza.
There is no way you can miss the 60 ft tall Grinchmas tree or any of the wonderful Who-ville Who's, and once you enter you have to make sure to stop, meet and talk to each Who that you see.
Universal Studios has some of the best rides, shows and attractions and they hit it out of the park with Grinchmas. The transformation into Who-ville is amazing and there are so many fun activities and shows. You can sit and listen to Cindy Lou Who while she reads the Dr. Seuss classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas and see musical performances by The Who-liday Singers boy band and Marth May Who-vier and her Who Dolls.
The 60 ft tall one-of-a-kind, curved Seuss-ian Grinchmas tree is beautiful all day long, but in the evening you have to see it light up. You can catch the tree lighting every 30 minutes which also ends in snowfall!
Before you get in line to take a SUPER FUN photo with the Grinch or Max the Dog, here are some other activities the kids can enjoy.
- Decorate and send a postcard at the Whoville post office. Which also serves to donate a book to your community as thanks from the Seuss family.
- Design your own Grinch themed holiday ornament.
- Decorate a cookie with frosting and other edible sweets. Purchase is required but worth it, it's a huge cookie.
Meeting the Grinch is the definite highlight of all the Wholiday Wholibrations. He is just as you would expect him to be from the story, but better. He is great in person and full of fun and energy and really great at taking selfies. He asked my girls what their names were, read their post cards, and helped them put them in the mailbox before posing for our pictures. Such a great highlight for the holidays.
We had so much fun celebrating the Who-lidays here and you and your family will too! Come out for the Grinchmas fun and stay for the rest. Don't miss the Minion Ride, Springfield, the 50th anniversary Studio Tour and the Fast and Furious Supercharged.
Universal Studious Grinchmas is open select dates now through January 3, 2016!
Oh and in case you haven't heard, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is set to open at Universal Studios Hollywood on April 7, 2016!
