    Universal Studios have Macey's Parade over the Christmas period. The Blues Brothers show is Christmas themed .... the park is decorated.

    Believe during the Christmas period at SW is wonderful :p015: They have a saxaphone player start the show and there is a jazz/blues theme with guest singers and a choir walk through the isles with lit candles.

    It's a different parade from the WDW parades .....but you still get characters and it finishes with Santa and all of his helpers under the tree

    Believe is fantastic at Christmas..... the sole sax player is spotlighted at the front of the pool.....the lights dim and about 30 carollers holding candles walk down the isles and onto the stage. The blues singer continues through most of the show while Shamu does his thing. It made me cry!

    I would suggest standing near the tree if you do go to see macy's parade as it is where the can can Santas helpers finish off and the countdown for the tree lighting is followed by tons and tons of ticka tapes 'raining' on you.

    There is also the Polar Express at SW during Christmas :yes:
