Grinchmas Universal Studios Hollywood
This year I fulfilled a dream: Going to Grinchmas Universal Studios Hollywood! I absolutely love Ron Howard’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas, so have always wanted to attend Grinchmas. On opening day, my husband, myself and my daughter took a family trip, and even met up with a few friends to check out the festivities. And honestly, it exceeded my expectations! Below you can see what you can find at Grinchmas 2018:
You can meet-and-greet with the Grinch in his Santa suit (I recommend doing this first thing in the morning or during the tree lighting for the shortest lines). There are also meet-and-greets with Max, who is a real life dog!
You can also head over to the post office, where you can meet Cindy-Lou Who and write a letter to the Grinch. Each letter you write will help support tutoring to homeless youth.
There’s also many other fun eccentric characters to meet throughout Whoville, I always saw so many popping up throughout the day!
Upon entering Whoville, you can find some amazingly delicious themed treats, such as Grinch donuts, cookies, and my daughter’s favorite, green cotton candy!
Amazing Photo Ops!
Grinchmas Universal Studios Hollywood is Instagram HEAVEN! The towering Seuss-esque tree in the center of Whoville is a masterpiece! And there are also cars from the Ron Howard movie on display to take photos with, as well as different Whoville setups throughout the promenade. Around, you can even spy some very Christmas walls that are perfect for a Universal Studios Hollywood Instagram wall pic:
There are a few different shows throughout the day in Whoville. What I love about them is that they aren’t too long (just the right show length when you’re with kids). And there’s three different ones throughout the day to enjoy, to keep you coming back to Whoville during your Universal Studios Hollywood trip! There is a song and dance number with Martha-May Who-vier and the Who Dolls, with Mr. Grinch making an appearance too!
My favorite where the Who-liday Singers, an amazing Whoville acapella group!
Lastly, at night you can see the tree lighting of the 60-foot tall Whoville tree along with snowfall!
