Grinch it at Universal Orlando

Not everything has to be saccharine sweet, and the fun can often be found in the dysfunctional which is why we wanna Grinch it at Universal Orlando this festive season.

And our old pals at Universal have only brought hilarious hijinks to this live retelling of the classic tale starring the Grinch with music recorded by Mannheim Steamroller.

While there are also treats galore including an array of unique Grinch-themed sweets.

So try out the Grinch Hot Chocolate Bomb, a Grinch Ice Cream Sandwich, and Grinch cookies, among others.

And we’re advised to watch out for resident Whos wandering through Seuss Landing as we go.

You will, in truth, be full of questions wandering around the Islands (there are eight) of Adventures.

The most pressing of which will be where?

Leisure Islands

Inch by Grinch: Suess Landing

And so the super seven are the Port of Entry, Marvel Super Hero Island, Toon Lagoon, Skull Island, Jurassic Park, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, The Lost Continent, and, of course, Seuss Landing.

With our most familiar the Boy Wizard.

And I was inspired by Daddy’s Little Girl who insisted I get her her own wand and a group of Potterheads.

So she probably had an excuse being seven at the time.

And that’s an excuse my colleague Emma-Jane couldn’t use as she was breathless at being picked in Olivander’s.

Look out then for the Hogwarts castle lighting up for the holidays.

And festive decor brightening up the streets.f Hogsmeade in Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Diagon Alley in Universal Studios Florida.

Here for the Butterbeer

Mellow yellow: The Butterbeer

So with it being holiday season you’re encouraged to toast the season with a hot Butterbeer.

And that sure is a delight for those with a sweet tooth.

While the Frog Choir and Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees put a holiday spin on their performances. 

So you’ll need a Park-to-Park ticket to ride the Hogwarts Express and visit both lands of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

The train travels between Hogsmeade in Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Diagon Alley in Universal Studios Florida.

And this being Potter there are Dementors invading your peace and other surprises in store.

All of which will delight those who like a bit of Scary Christmas.

And as a counterbalance to all the Merry Christmas messages all around us.

So whether you want to Grinch it at Universal Orlando.\

Or potter around the Boy Wizard’s domain it’ll be a fearstive season to remember.

With Universal Orlando starting Christmas from today right through to a Scary New Year on January 1.
