The resort is currently hosting its annual 'Holidays at Univeral Orlando' event, which runs through Jan. 3. The event is modified from years past due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Guests can enjoy a new walk-through experience where you get a close look at the larger-than-life Macy’s balloons and colorful Christmas floats. At Islands of Adventure, Grinchmas is in full swing featuring the mean, green one himself and the Whos of Whoville.
