Grinchmas at Universal Studios
Prepare for your heart to grow three sizes after a visit to Universal Studios’ Grinchmas. On Dec 1, the park transforms into Who-ville from Dr. Seuss’ “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”. Watch as the one-of-kind Seussian Christmas tree lights up, and listen to the townspeople join in joyous song. And make sure to watch for the snowfall! Take a pic with the Grinch and his pooch Max after the 65-ft-tall tree lighting ceremony. Kids can sit and enjoy story time as Cindy Lou-Who tells the classic Christmas story of the Grinch. Guests are invited to send a postcard to the Grinch promising to do three good deeds. And Martha May Who-vier and the Who-Dolls will steal the spotlight with a variety of performances throughout December.
Tickets for this event are available here. Ticket prices for adults are $109, and $103 for kids ages 3-9. Universal Studios is also offering a special deal where you can purchase a one-day pass and get a second day free. Don’t wait too long because this deal is only available until Dec 19.
