Who-ville is decked out for the holidays at Islands of Adventure for the annual Grinchmas event. Watch the beloved Dr. Seuss characters come to life in a musical show and dance around the Who-ville tree before getting a holiday picture with Mr. Grinch. Next door at Universal Studio, balloons and floats from the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade wind their way through the streets in a nightly parade celebrating the season. Even the Grinch must have caught the holiday bug as both events are free with admission to the parks.
