There are a ton of exciting things going on at Universal Orlando this Holiday season! From the Macy's Parade to some very cool live entertainment, they are sure to have something everyone will enjoy. The Macy's Parade features floats and balloons directly from the Macy's Thanksgiving parade in New York City! With the appearance from Santa, this is something that cant be missed. Universal also has Bands, and the spectacular tree lighting with this special event starting Dec 1st threw Jan 1st daily every evening at 5 o clock!

Universal is also celebrating the holidays with the Mannheim Steamrollers! Back again this year at Universals music plaza, on select Saturday and Sunday nights during December starting at 6 o clock pm( Dec 1,2,8,9,15,16,22,23). Did you know they are the best selling Christmas artist of all time? Make sure you don't miss the Fun Grinchmas Show at Islands of Adventure featuring music recorded by the Mannheim Steamrollers themselves.(For best sitting, skip the parade and go straight to Music plaza at park closing).

Of course there is also some more live entertainment to enjoy including Barney and Friends Sing a long, Clap a long at A Day in The Park With Barney and also The Blues Brothers Holiday Show performing some Christmas time favorites. Jake and Elmood with "Santa Clause is coming to town" and also "Blue Christmas". The Shows also include snow for the children to have fun in after the show.

Grinchmas has began again at Islands of Adventure! The centerpiece of the celebrations this year is a heartwarming live show including the Grinch himself. Dr Suess Landing comes to life during this special appearance with all the Who's from who-ville spreading Christmas cheer!
