Grinchmas is back at Universal Studios Hollywood for 2019! The celebration kicks off when Universal Studios Hollywood puts up the giant crooked Christmas tree in Universal Plaza and the magical Whos of Who-ville and the ever-popular Grinch appear for the annual holiday celebration.
Grinchmas Universal Studios Hollywood 2019
Grinchmas brings the story of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, a classic children’s story by “Dr. Seuss”, to life for those who are young and young at heart. The story follows the Grinch, a grumpy, solitary creature who attempts to put an end to Christmas by stealing presents and Christmas decorations from the homes of the nearby town Whoville on Christmas Eve. Miraclously, after befriending a sweet little girl name Cindy-Lou Who, the Grinch realizes that Christmas is not all about presents and feasting. Suddenly, the The Grinch’s shrunken heart grows three sizes and he has a change in spirit. Now he loves Christmas!
Grinchmas Meet and Greet Opportunities
The highlight of Grinchmas for any visitor is to meet the Grinch and other fellow citizens of Who-ville. In particular, there are three meet-‘n’greet opportunities available at Universal Studios Hollywood. First off, is the Grinch himself. The line to meet the Grinch is the longest, peaking at a 90-minute wait during the busiest time of the day. Therefore, I recommend doing it first thing in the morning when you arrive, and bring a camera along to capture that moment when your child meets the Grinch. Field Trip Girl’s expression is priceless!
Next up is Max, the Grinch’s dog and only loyal companion. They live together on Mount Crumpit, a steep high mountain just north of the town of Whoville. Guests are encouraged to pose for pictures with Max and pet him afterwards. When not on set in Who-ville, Max is a rescue animal who normally stars in the Animal Actors show.
