Grinchmas Who-liday Spectacular 2023 – best seats in the house
Seating for the Grinchmas Who-liday Spectacular is first come, first serve (no Express Pass access is offered, either). Depending on how busy the park is when you visit, you’ll want to get in line 15 to 40 minutes before the show is scheduled to begin.
Roughly 10 minutes before the start time, guests are led from a queue area inside Seuss Landing (next to the Circus McGurkus Cafe Stoo-pendous quick-service restaurant) to the former location of Blue Man Group, located between Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios Florida.
Below is the interior of the theater.
The truth is, given the position of the bleacher seating, there really isn’t a bad spot.
That being said, we still have a few tips: first, if you have an animal lover in the family, sit on the right side of the stage. From here you will get a closer look at Max, the Grinch’s dog, who is played by a real dog – and a very cute one, at that. Second, sitting on the right puts you a little closer to the Grinch’s sleigh for the finale of the show, as seen here:
Once the show is over, you’ll exit back to the same area in Seuss Landing where you queued. There are no photo ops available after the show, but, as we mentioned on our main page, the cast does wander through Seuss Landing at many times throughout the day – the big man himself, for example, has his own scheduled photo-op times in the Seuss Landing bookshop (see your in-park guide map for times).
