One of my favorite books is Dr. Seuss “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”. As a child, I remember my mother reading the book to me and then seeing it come alive as on the big screen. This timeless classic comes to life at Universal Studios Hollywood “Grinchmas™”. Guest can enjoy a Who-lebration fit for The Grinch, his faithful dog Max and a roster of Who-ville Whos.
This year I was blessed to experince Grinchmas for the first time with my daughter Joy and she totally had a blast. Univerasal transforms an area of the park into Who-ville and all of the activities done in that specific area. Which is great because you don’t have to walk through the whole park to do each themed activity.
1) Who-ville Post Office – Joy is just learning how to write therefore, I figured we would incorporate a lesson into our visit to Who-ville by having her participate in the “Grow Your Heart 3 Sizes” campaign. Where Little ones are encourage to 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.
2) Story Time with Cindy-Lou Who – As I stood in line to wait to take a picture with the Grinch. Matt took Joy to the stage where Cindy-Lou Who and her Who friends gathered guests of all ages – tall and small – for an engaging storytelling show of Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
3) Who-liday Performances – As Martha May Who-vier and the Who Dolls took the center stage by the “Grinchmas” tree, performing energetic musical sets to usher in the Christmas season in style. Joy and her brother Houston a picture with Grinch, faithful dog Max.
5) Photo opp’s with the Grinch and other Who-ville Whos – They say it takes a lot to warm the Grinch’s heart. However, Joy and him got along just fine. She even gave him a hugged him before leaving to go to “Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter”.
Bring the kids to Universal Studios Hollywood “Grinchmas™”, Spend your holiday with The Grinch™, Max and all of Who-ville, during the most Who-tacular Grinchmas™ celebration ever at Universal Studios Hollywood™.
