Annual or seasonal passes to Universal Studios Hollywood will also allow you to experience Grinchmas as long as your pass isn't blocked out on the day you're hoping to visit. 

In short, Grinchmas is included with the price of admission at Universal Studios Hollywood and no event specific tickets need to be purchased!

As long as you've purchased any ticket to Islands of Adventure during Grinchmas dates you'll be able to enjoy all of the holiday festivities.

The same goes for Universal Orlando annual passes - as long as your pass isn't blocked out then you're all set to head over to Islands of Adventure to experience Grinchmas. 

Where Can You Buy Grinchmas Tickets? (And how to save some money!)

Tickets for Grinchmas, which are the same as general admission tickets to Universal Studio Hollywood and Islands of Adventure, can be purchased either online or at the front gate. 

We recommend purchasing your tickets online either directly from Universal or from an authorized discount ticket seller like Theme Park Center.

Purchasing your tickets online will save you hassle in what is often a lengthly line (especially around the holidays) at the ticket booths at Universal Studios or Islands of Adventure. 

You'll also find that tickets purchased online will often be slightly cheaper than tickets purchased at the front gate! 

You can save over $5+ per person by purchase Islands of Adventure tickets or Universal Studios Hollywood in advance.

Remember, Grinchmas is included in the price of admission with every ticket to Universal Studios Hollywood or Islands of Adventure, so there is no need to purchase anything except for a day ticket to either of these parks.
