PHOTOS, VIDEO: Have The Grinch Take YOUR Christmas Photos in the New Grinchmas Photo Experience at Universal’s Islands of Adventure

It’s the holiday season at Seuss Landing, where you can enjoy the feeling of the warm fuzzies, complete with a hefty side of sarcasm, thanks to the Grinch! This year, you have the opportunity to meet the maven of mischief himself for an autograph and, if you’d like, purchase a photo of yourself with him. Now, we weren’t sure what we were expecting with this new modified photo experience, but we assure you it’s unlike any photo session you’ve ever had. Why? Well, the Grinch takes your photos.


You’ll find the photo experience at the All The Books You Can Read gift shop, next to the The High in the Sky Seuss Trolley Train Ride in Seuss Landing.


An expansive, socially-distanced queue is set up for the experience.


Reservations for a photo appointment with The Grinch are highly recommended, and available by clicking this link. Today, the experience opened at 10:55 AM for guests, and we got lucky with a chance at stand-by.

Once inside, we realized what the current setup was like—we weren’t kidding when we said the Grinch takes your photo. He’s the one at the controls, telling you how to pose.


We really loved this unique twist on the photo experience, and commend Grinch’s skill as a photographer!
