Celebrate Grinchmas Who-liday Spectacular at Universal Orlando Resort

My mom and I are HUGE Grinch fans, so I told her I would take her to experience Grinchmas in Orlando together! So, I connected with Universal Orlando Resort and partnered with them to share my love for their Grinchmas Who-liday Spectacular and visit Universal Orlando Resort during the holidays with family.

How You Can Experience Grinchmas!

If you’re wondering how you can experience Grinchmas, make sure you come to Universal Orlando Resort during the holiday time! You won’t be able to experience Grinchmas unless it’s during the holiday time.

Once you’re here, you’ll want to visit Seuss Landing in Universal’s Islands of Adventure to find the area transformed into Grinchmas with Who-ville decorations and who’s from Who-ville walking around spreading who-liday joy!

Here’s a list of all the things you can do to celebrate Grinchmas at Universal’s Islands of Adventure:


1. Grinch Photo Opportunities

Meet The Grinch in person and snap a photo with him for all to see! You’ll get warm fuzzy feelings with a side of sarcasm when you meet The Grinch.

We had the opportunity to be the first in line to meet The Grinch the day we went and he called at my mom and said “Common! Move it!” just like Jim Carrey does in the movie which made my mom laugh and blush. I also got the Grinch to kiss me on the cheek, so he’s not truly a mean one.

2. Breakfast with The Grinch

Another unique experience Universal Orlando Resort offers for Grinchmas is the oppoutunity to have a Dr Seuss breakfast (green eggs & ham anyone?) and meet The Grinch & Other Dr Seuss characters! After having breakfast from a buffet selection, Mr Grinch makes his rounds to pose for photos at every table! You do have to book reservations at any of the guest services and pay for the breakfast buffet ahead of time. Because it’s a buffet, it is pricier, so make sure you come hungry.

Tip: you can get a photo with The Grinch by waiting in line across from the restaurant, but there’s usually a long line up (up to an hour), so you might want to skip the line for photos by having a relaxing breakfast while getting a photo with The Grinch at the resturant.


3. Meet Who’s from Whoville

Keep an eye out while walking around Seuss Landing since there are many Whos wandering around spreading who-liday joy! They’re happy to stop and take photos with you.


4. Live Show of the Grinchmas Who-liday Spectacular

Universal Orlando Resort has the unique experience of having a live performance of the Dr. Seuss classic holiday tale starring The Grinch in their studios!

There are multiple show times to see the live performance of The Grinch and you will be escorted to the Studio lot where you’ll sit down and watch the theatre musical of The Grinch!


5. Grinch Souviners & Merchandise

Perfect time to buy souvenirs or get your holiday shopping done! Although you’ll find Grinch merchandise all over Universal’s Islands of Adventure, Universal Studios Florida and Universal City Walk!

6. Dr Seuss Amusment Rides

Even though there’s no year-round Grinch ride (although I wish there was!), you and your family can ride The High in the Sky Seuss Trolly Train Ride, The Cat in the Hat, and One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.

Review of Grinchmas

My mom and I had the most who-tastic time celebrating Grinchmas, and although I wish there was a Grinch ride, the live show with the Grinch was amazing, as well as meeting the Grinch multiple times, getting told to “move it”, and getting photos is definitely worth the trip if you’re a huge Grinch fan like us!
