Grinchmas

Hi. I will be visiting from UK next year in Nov/Dec and want to ensure we experience Grinchmas. Can anyone advise when it starts. Is it always same day or date? Thanks

Christmas festivities start this Saturday (12/1) and run through New Year's Day. Grinchmas is a daily event with different shows and experiences throughout the day. Check the park map when you arrive to see when everything is scheduled.

The official start is always the first weekend in December, primarily the first Saturday.

Timing of 2012 Grinchmas AND Macy's Christmas Parade

Does anyone know the schedule for this weekend and next weekend of Grinchmas AND the Macy's Christmas Parade?
I know they've started... it would be very helpful to know the times as we drive over from Titusville for a few hours in the Parks and don't want to miss either event.
Thank you!

Grinchmas usually has a showtime just about every hour until park closing.

Macy's parade is at 5pm every night. I believe the parade starts a little bit later towards the end of the month.

First to mid-december is much more enjoyable cause there are no crowds to speak of, you might want to consider coming then if you are able.

When do they start Grinchmas each day AND how often are the showings?

We're trying to time a lunch at Mythos between Grinchmas and the Macy's parade...

I'll be there tomorrow,it appears the parade is at 5pm with Mannheim Steamroller playing at 6pm,I saw them at Universal before but don't remember how long they played,does anybody know who's seen them this year?I assume it'll be an hour or so,I'm hoping it's not too long as I'm going to try to jump over to Sea World afterwards to catch some of their Holiday stuff which goes until 11pm.

About 1 hour. It's the same show as last year.
