My family and I visited Universal Orlando Resort recently to enjoy the December Holiday Festivities of Grinchmas and the Macy's Holiday Parade.
Whimsical decorations are found throughout Seuss Landing in Islands of Adventure.
We also came upon some of the Who actors from the Grinchmas production.
The Grinchmas show is a must do at Islands of Adventure every year. The performers are very talented and the fantastic music is by Mannheim Steamroller
We took the Hogwarts Express from Hogsmeade in Islands of Adventure to Kings Cross Station in Universal Studios.
The Christmas Tree in front of the Macy's Store and Macy's Parade balloons located throughout Universal Studios Florida make for some great photo opportunities.
Our son loves parades and he was very excited when the Macy's Holiday Parade began. You can probably hear his squeals of joy in the Facebook Video below.
Huge balloons, confetti, a marching band, floats, and of course, Santa appearing at the end make this parade a must-do when visiting Orlando's theme parks during the holiday season.
After the parade guests can have their photo taken with some of Santa's helpers. On select nights, Mannheim Steamroller performs their wonderful music for park guests.
I highly recommend the fabulous holiday events at Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios Florida and hope you will be able to visit soon.
