Grinchmas at Universal Studios Hollywood
The heart of the theme park’s Universal Plaza will once again be the scene of the merry “Grinchmas” Who-bilation. The 65-foot-tall “Grinchmas” tree, which is adorned with thousands of LED lights and hundreds of decorations, will leave holiday park visitors in awe. Every evening, a joyful tree-lighting ceremony will enthrall visitors as they see the Grinch himself tell his tale with the Whos of Whoville, culminating in a snowball flurry that will make everyone smile and have fun.
Visitors seeking to get into the “Grinchmas” spirit can choose from a range of activities. Throughout the day, you can take pictures with The Grinch and his devoted dog Max. Children who want to learn about “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” can attend Cindy-Lou Who’s daily story hour, and the Who-ville post office will be collecting holiday-themed postcards. There will also be a variety of sweet seasonal delicacies, like hot chocolate, for sale.
In addition to the theme park, Universal CityWalk will be decked out in festive Christmas decor.
