Macy's Holiday Parade Universal Orlando

Running daily Dec. 5 through Jan. 2, 2016, families can create holiday memories as they experience one-of-a-kind holiday traditions at Universal Orlando Resort.

All park guests will have the opportunity to:

• Marvel at the iconic larger-than-life balloons seen in the famous Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City during the Macy’s Holiday Parade at Universal Studios Florida. This year, enjoy two all-new balloons exclusive to Universal Orlando’s parade, Turkey Balloonicle, a towering balloon with a self-powered vehicle, and Holiday Lights Balloon, as they dazzle guests while floating through the air.

• Grinchmas comes to life throughout Seuss Landing at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. Experiences include a live show, “Grinchmas Who-liday Spectacular,” featuring the Whos from Who-ville. Guests will also have the opportunity to dine with the Grinch and Friends during a delicious breakfast within Seuss Landing.

• Sing along to holiday classics with performances by Mannheim Steamroller at the Music Plaza Stage in Universal Studios Florida. Performance nights are Dec. 5, 6, 12, 13, 19 and 20.

All holiday festivities are included with theme park admission.

The celebration continues at Universal Orlando’s four on-site hotels with holiday buffets and dining events, tree-lighting ceremonies, special music performances, Hanukkah candle lightings, visits from Santa Claus, holiday poolside “dive-in” movies and family-friendly New Year’s Eve celebrations.

At Universal’s CityWalk, guests can experience a dynamic New Year’s Eve celebration which includes non-stop entertainment, unique party zones—each with their own entertainment and signature drinks—along with access to six different clubs with live music, unlimited gourmet cuisine, and Orlando’s largest dance floor.
