Visitng Universal Orlando in December

Our family has been a Disney family since our first family visit in 2000. Walt Disney World was our vacation destination. Once we moved down here we were excited to give Universal Orlando a try. The family got season passes for Christmas last year and we have been enjoying the parks ever since.

I enjoy how Universal offers some nice seasonal activities taking place at the parks. In fact, on our last couple of visits, we hardly did any rides, we just enjoyed the holiday decorations and entertainment.

We came to check out the Macy's Holiday Parade at Universal. We had a great view of the parade while enjoying the beautiful backdrop of the park Christmas tree. It was a nice parade and it was fun watching the little ones light up as the characters, floats and Santa passed by.

You'll find various Macy balloons scattered about the park. These larger than life characters create a festive atmosphere inside the theme park.
