The Holidays are most definitely in the air, and on this day, we were invited by Universal Orlando to preview the Universal Holiday Celebration. Thank you to Universal for allowing us to come and see some of the festive and fun things that will be happening during the holiday season.
We first got to see the festive holiday decorations that are around Universal this year, bringing that yuletide feeling to everyone. It was also pretty cold out on this preview day (at least for this Floridian livestreamer) so it made if feel even more jolly.
We got to see for the first time the Universal Holiday Parade featuring Macy’s which is always one of the highlights of the Universal holiday season. Of course, the music, dancing and the big balloon characters that are the trademark of the Macy’s parade where out in all of their holiday splendor.
From there, we got to go backstage and check out some of the performers that were practicing and then were whisked away (sorry, no peeky on this part) to get ready to see the much anticipated The Grinchmas Who-liday Spectacular show, featuring the mean, green one himself. I even got to have a little chat with the small-hearted one after the show and I think that he was a little disappointed that I did not bring him another yummy onion. We may have to bring him a little treat later on in the season.
After the show, Universal set up a beautiful display of desserts for media and we got to wander around, check out some of the holiday offerings and try some of the treats. Then, it was time for the nighttime spectacular, ‘The Magic of Christmas at Hogwart’s Castle’. This mapping projection show is one that we look forward to every year and again, it did not disappoint.
There is much to see and do this year at Universal Orlando Resort during the holiday season and we will be visiting again very soon to see more festivities as the season progresses.
