While Santa might be watching all year long, guests of the Universal Holiday Tour 2022 will have both the merry and the mischief with a variety of festive events. Whether guests want to tempt the Grinch with some onions or prefer to sing along with the Whos, everyone will leave with the heart full of holiday cheer.

Over the years, Universal Orlando has created a holiday spectacular for guests. While the attractions might offer the thrills during the day, as the sun sets, the holiday magic takes over. The twinkle in the night sky is more than just the shiny lights. It is the laughter that fills the air and makes everyone embrace the cheerfulness.

Returning this holiday season is the Universal Holiday Tour 2022. The specially ticketed event is a guided tour that immerses guests into the holiday atmosphere. From the memorable photo to the plate filled with sweets, everyone will have a favorite moment.

During the special event, guests will enjoy a sweets party hosted by the Grinch. Held at Circus McGurkus Café Stoo-pendous in Universal’s Islands of Adventure, the snarky personality will offer his witty banter as guests indulge on a variety of sweet treats and maybe even a hot chocolate. Even if onions are not on the menu, everyone will feast to their heart’s content.

With a full belly, guests will enjoy reserved seating for “Grinchmas Who-liday Spectacular.” While everyone might know the classic holiday tale, the vibrant sets, melodic songs and punny jokes will have everyone enjoying the performance.

Since every holiday season is complete with a moment with the man himself, Santa, the Universal Holiday Tour 2022 includes a photo opt with Santa. Just make sure that you are on good behavior because he is making that list.

Lastly, the evening ends with The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle. While sipping that Butterbeer, guests are mesmerized by the lights and sounds of the holidays in the Wizarding World. It is the perfect end to a magical day.

The Universal Holiday Tour 2022 is a separately ticketed event and does require additional theme park admission. The event runs on select dates from November 12 through December 29, 2022.
