The “Grinchmas” tree will be the centerpiece of the festivities in the Universal Plaza area. This tree is over 60 feet tall and is the perfect photo opportunity for a Christmas card photo!

Close to this fabulously decorated Christmas tree, guests can watch Martha May and the Who dolls performing a set full of Christmas cheer. Guests should also be sure to watch The Wholiday Singers take on the stage. Described as a “hip boy-band ensemble,” this group will perform nightly a cappella concerts that will feature a mix of Christmas favorites and pop rock hits!

Cindy-Lou Who and friends will also use the stage to tell the story of Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Be ready to be called on as an audience member, as participation is encouraged!


“Grinchmas” is designed to capture guests’ imagination with a wide array of activities that are sure to create memories to last a lifetime, as well as give back to the community and to loved ones.

Guests can visit the Who-ville Post Office, where they can share good deeds on a post card and mail it to The Grinch. As a result of this, Dr. Seuss Enterprises, L.P. and Random House Children’s Books, the publishers of Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, will donate a book to a child in need through First Book on behalf of the sender. This is a perfect way to share the true meaning of Christmas.

At the Trim up the Tree Lot, guests can personalize their very own “Grinchmas” ornaments. These can be hung on the venue’s trees, or be taken home as a souvenir.

Ginger bread and Christmas tree cookies are available for purchase at the Who-bilicious Cookie Dec-Who-rating station. Guests can use their creativity to design their own treats with frostings and toppings galore.

All things “Grinchmas” are included in the ticket price to the theme park.  More information is available at www.UniversalStudiosHollywood.com.
