Epic Holiday Cheer, Universal Style - A Review of Universal's Holiday Parade Featuring Macy's
We love how Epic the holidays can be at the Universal Orlando Resort. We enjoy their parks each December as part of our Christmas and other holiday traditions. Join us as we review one of their most notable annual signature offerings for the holidays, Universal’s Holiday Parade Featuring Macy’s. Every year, this impressive parade travels the streets of Universal Studios Florida with floats, balloons, and characters, daily from mid-November to the first of the New Year. In addition to character appearances and an extraordinary cavalcade of characters, the parade also features the famed towering balloons from the Macy’s Parade in New York City. The parade runs annually from about Mid November through the first of the New Year. It features characters from DreamWorks Animation’s Shrek and Madagascar as well as Illumination Animation’s Despicable Me! This offering is worth seeing if you're visiting Universal Orlando around the holidays.
