It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Universal Studios Hollywood™ and Universal CityWalk® are all decked out for the holidays! Universal Studios is located in Hollywood California. This unique theme park gives behind the scenes peeks at popular movies and TV shows and is fun for the whole family. The holidays bring Grinchmas and other seasonal treats to Universal. All the holiday festivities are included with your admission ticket!
Do not miss Who-ville and the Grinchmas celebration. The center of Whoville has a perfect crooked tree and “Whos” wander throughout the crowd and chat up guests.
“Grinchmas™” returns to Universal Studios Hollywood with a Who-lebration fit for The Grinch, his faithful dog Max and a roster of Who-ville Whos. Do not miss out on photo opportunities with The Grinch, Max, and Whos! Meet and Greets and specials shows run all day, including multiple tree lighting ceremonies at night time.
The Grinch was hilarious and awful, just as one might expect of the Grinch. While he is the Grinch, he took the time to talk with each person that came through the line. Sarcasm and bad attitudes were so ridiculous we had to laugh.
Next we met Max the dog. Max is The Grinch’s faithful side kick. Max is such a good dog, not a great reindeer though…..
Do not miss this opportunity to do a good deed. Send the Grinch a post card with a list of good things you did this year. For every card that is filled out a book will be donated to a child in need! We all filled one out. I love that Universal Studios organized such a great charitable opportunity for guests of Grinchmas!
I cannot wait to share more about The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, but for now, I just want to share this! Just in time for the holidays and chilly weather…… warm Butterbeer!
Harry Potter fans rejoice! Hot Butterbeer™ is now available at Three Broomsticks™ and Hog’s Head pub when “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™” at Universal Studios Hollywood debuts this newest addition of this popular beverage to its offerings of themed offerings. Our kids loved the cold Butterbeer they tried on their first journey to Harry Potter World. They give the hot version two thumbs up!
Grinchmas is a unique spin on the holiday that can only be seen at Universal. In the Universal Plaza you cannot miss the 60 foot tall Grinchmas tree, it is the perfect photo op now through January 1, 2017. Music and performances around the Grinchmas tree were so fun to watch. Throughout the park you will see festive decor and even a few other characters that are in the holiday spirit!
In addition to the festivities inside the park, keep in mind Universal CityWalk also has entertainment. CityWalk is a free open air attraction with shops, entertainment, and restaurants. There will be talented street performers and visits from Santa on CityWalk as well!
