Over at Islands Of Adventure, The Grinch is making a ruckus with the Whos of Whoville. Enjoy the Grinchmas Wholiday Spectacular. A live retelling of How The Grinch Stole Christmas straight from the cartoon to a Broadway style musical with original added music from Mannheim Steamroller.

The Streets of Universal Studios Orlando come to life with huge floats and balloons from the Macy’s Holiday Parade. While it only shows for one day in New York City, parts of it are here at Universal all season long for your enjoyment. This year, we have the addition of the Christmas String Lights Balloon and the Thanksgiving Turkey balloon float.

About John Saccheri

John Saccheri has been rooted in the Disney culture from childhood. John only had the opportunity to visit Walt Disney World once, at the age of 5. After returning home, he never stopped talking about it, yearning to return. His parents were worried about this “obsession,” but John began working at the age of 12 with a focus on saving up for the next Disney trip. He was able to visit Disney World at least once a year from 14 years old onward. Today, a successful entrepreneur, John was able to move from his hometown of Long Island, New York, to Central Florida to be close to the Mouse. Going to the parks still seems like a fantasy to him!
