Red? Bleh. Blue? Meh. Let’s forget the two parties that have driven us crazy for the past year. How about you go Green? As in the Mean Green One himself. The Grinch is returning once again to Universal Studios Hollywood, and it’s going to be the Who-liday that we need this year.
The event will begin December 1st and run weekends until December 16th. After that, the Grinchmas celebration will run daily! This year’s Who-liday Whobilation is bigger than ever. Guests can sing along with Martha May Who-vier and the Who Dolls will take center stage by the “Grinchmas” tree, performing energetic musical sets to usher in the Christmas season in style. The Who-liday Singers – a hip boy-band ensemble – will perform nightly a cappella concerts featuring a mix of Christmas favorites and pop rock.
There will also be a ton of fun events for little who’s and Grinches as well:
- Who-ville Post Office – Visitors will have a chance to partake in the “Grow Your Heart 3 Sizes” campaign when they share their good deeds on a postcard and mail them to The Grinch. In return, Dr. Seuss Enterprises, L.P. and Random House Children’s Books, the publishers of Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, will pay it forward by donating a book to a child in need through First Book on behalf of the sender.
- Trim up the Tree Lot – Guests can design and personalize their own “Grinchmas” ornaments to help decorate the venue’s other “Grinchmas” trees or take them home as a memorable keepsake.
- Story Time with Cindy-Lou Who – Cindy-Lou Who and her Who friends will gather guests of all ages – tall and small – for an engaging storytelling show of Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
There will also be a huge transformation on the Studio Tour, as the Grinch Backlot set comes to life with Who’s as they decorate Who-ville for Christmas. The merry little Who’s love Christmas a lot, and you can see them playing and working…Grinch or not. Of course you’ll be able to enjoy all the sights and sounds of the seasons with a cup of Hot Butterbeer as well in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
Don’t think that the fun ends or begins in the Studios. CityWalk comes to life as a huge Christmas tree decorated with thousands of LED lights dances to holiday music in the Five Towers Plaza. The iconic water fountain will also be choreographed to holiday music and take on a festive light display. There will also be free holiday concerts on the Five Towers stage!
The Holidays begin at Universal Studios Hollywood December 3rd, and at CityWalk on November 25th!
