Holiday Celebration at Universal Orlando Resort™

‘Tis the season for holiday cheer at Universal Orlando ResortTM and you can join in on the fun from December 3, 2016 through January 1, 2017. This year the Macy's Holiday ParadeTM is celebrating its 15th anniversary at Universal Studios FloridaTM. Marvel at larger-than-life balloons including the new "Virginia" of "Yes, Virginia there is a Santa" balloon, which will be joining the "Macy's Star" and "Big Man Santa" balloons. There's no need to travel up north to enjoy the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City when you can experience it at Universal Studios FloridaTM.

And if you're traveling with little ones make sure to catch the "GrinchmasTM Who-liday Spectacular" show at Universal's Islands of AdventureTM. You can come face-to-face with the mean, green one himself at Seuss LandingTM where Grinchmas comes to life. You can also enjoy a delicious breakfast buffet including Green Eggs and Ham at The GrinchTM & Friends Character Breakfast.

We all know that the holiday season wouldn't be complete without classic Christmas carols, so make sure you're visiting Universal Orlando ResortTM during selected nights so you can catch Mannheim Steamroller perform on the Music Plaza Stage!

If it's a party that you're looking for, ring in 2017 at Universal Citywalk®'s electrifying EVE New Year's celebration. You'll enjoy signature drinks in Universal Citywalk®'s six new clubs with live bands and DJs, but make sure to purchase your tickets before they're sold out! With unique party zones and unlimited gourmet dining, you'll be happy you decided to ring in the new year at Universal Citywalk®, Orlando's largest dance floor!

Create new traditions with your family this year by celebrating the holidays at Universal Orlando ResortTM. Start planning here!

You can feel the holiday warmth already!
