Happy Dr. Seuss Day! In honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, here are all the fun things you can do at Seuss Landing at Universal Orlando to celebrate the wit and whimsy of Dr. Seuss.
Cat in the Hat
The Cat in the Hat is easy to spot from the large red-and-white striped hat on top of the ride’s entrance. This mild but fun ride takes guests through the animatronic story of the Cat in the Hat. It’s a cute ride that kids especially will enjoy, and those like me that have plenty of nostalgia for Dr. Seuss. Be aware that portions of the ride do involve spinning. Guests must be at least 36 inches tall to ride.
Oh! The Stories You’ll Hear!
This daily show features brief musical tellings of favorite Dr. Seuss stories, including Green Eggs and Ham, the Grinch, and the Cat in the Hat. The characters will typically take some time to meet with guests after the show. You can check a park map for show times. Keep in mind that during slower times of year, there may only be a meet with the characters in lieu of the full show.
High in the Sky Seuss Trolley Train Ride
You can get a bird’s-eye view of Seuss Landing on this train ride, which takes guests on a ride around the land on an elevated track, with views of several places you can’t see from the ground. There are two different tracks, one of which goes through the Circus McGurkus Café Stoo-pendous. The queue also features the story of the Sneetches. Guests must be at least 40 inches tall to ride, and children 40-48 inches must be accompanied by an adult. There is no height requirement for this ride, but children under 48 inches tall must be accompanied by an adult.
This merry-go-round is made special by the variety of unusual Seuss-style characters that guests can choose from to ride.
One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish
This aerial carousel-style ride allows guests to board a fish as they fly into the air. The fish vehicles can be controlled by the rider, which is good because you might be able to avoid getting wet. There is no height requirement for this ride, but children under 48 inches tall must be accompanied by an adult.
There are often several Dr. Seuss characters available to meet in Seuss Landing. You can often find the Cat in the Hat, the Lorax, Thing 1 and Thing 2, and others in the area. Check a park map for a Character Zone schedule.
