Celebrate the Holidays at Universal Studios Orlando

I was so excited to learn that I had been invited back to enjoy the holidays with the family at Universal Studios Orlando. The Grinch, the Macy’s Holiday Parade and Mannheim Steamroller all make for a perfect holiday trip for the family. We started our trip by making a stop in Seuss Landing to meet the big green guy himself…the Grinch.


Just like last year my youngest would not go anywhere near him but she loved the show it was amazing and it told the great message portrayed in the beloved Dr. Seuss story about the giving and caring for each other over material things. Once the show ended in Adventure Island it was off to The Macy’s Day Parade in Universal Studios side of the park. It was larger than life and we had an amazing view of the parade the kids were so excited as they lined the sidewalk eagerly awaiting the sounds of the sirens from the Police on their motorcycles and the music to start.

The show, the floats and the balloons were amazing! The parade begins every evening at 5:00pm, December 1 – January 1. There were quite a few new additions to the parade this year and one of my favorite were the Trykaloons.

Mannheim Steamroller  Perform Live!

To bring the end to a perfect evening was watching Mannheim Steamroller  perform live. This year they have changed up the performance and are playing more shows than they have in previous years. Performances begin at 6pm and will play on the following dates: December 1, 2, 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, 23. It is definitely not one to be missed they play many of the original holiday favorites as well as some of the songs from How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
