Universal Studios Hollywood Grinchmas

On Saturday we went to Universal Studios Hollywood Grinchmas. This is our second year in a row visiting Grinchmas.  We all love both versions of How The Grinch Stole Christmas.  The entire day was just awesome!!

Curious George

We arrived right when the park opened and headed straight to Universal Plaza (where Whooville is located). The entire plaza is transformed into Whooville for the holidays. Every single worker in the area is a Whooville character. Cindy Lou Who reads The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, Martha May and Who Dolls perform and dance to Christmas songs, there are Wholiday singers that perform and sing. All the Whoville characters come out at dusk to light the Whooville Christmas tree and sing together on stage. You can meet the Grinch, Cindy Lou Who, every single Whooville character walking around, Max the dog (it took 6 dogs to make the movie and you actually get to meet one of the Max dogs that was in the movie). You can go to the Whooville post office and send a postcard to the Grinch and a book will be donated to a child in need in your community just by writing a letter to the Grinch. I cannot even begin to describe in words how amazing Grinchmas at Whooville was. Everyone should go! We spent the majority of our day and night in Whoville since there is so much to see and do! We also ate along the way, rode rides, and visited other areas of the park. Springfield (Simpson land) was so cool and had some of the best food! We also visited Fun Land that was dedicated to Despicable Me and those little Minions. Of course we rode the Studio Tour Tram Ride and it was so fun. We spent lots of time at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Blake and I have read every book and have seen every movie together. We are huge Harry Potter fans. We were like two kids walking through that land. The two rides that they have are both awesome. Our favorite was Harry Potter And The Forbidden Journey. It was unbelievable. All of the shops, windows, wands, dining, and every little detail is just amazing. We loved it all. Overall, I would highly recommend Universal Studios. I don't think I have any desire to go in the spring, summer, or fall, but we will totally be back again next year for Grinchmas!

In The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter you can celebrate Christmas in Hogsmeade village.  It is transformed with enchanting spirit, festive decor and new holiday themed food, drinks, and entertainment.  Starting at 5:30 pm and every half an hour after you can see the castle light up and there is a light show in front of the castle that is 7 minutes long.

In Whooville they light the Christmas tree at 5:30 pm and every half hour after that.  It is so cute!
