Oh The Stories You'll Hear

Oh the silliness and excitement you’ll experience at Oh! The Stories You’ll Hear at Universal’s Islands of Adventure! Located in Dr. Seuss Landing, this strange and wonderful area of the Orlando theme park will take you inside some of Dr. Seuss’ most famous stories in a way you’ve never been before! The result is a fun-filled, musical adventure that will make you feel like you are actually in the books!

Based on Dr. Seuss’ popular book, “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” this area of Dr. Seuss Landing at Islands of Adventure will take guests on a theatrical and musical journey through some of the good doctors most popular and notable books and characters including Sam of Green Eggs and Ham, The Cat in the Hat with Thing One and Thing Two, The Grinch and the Lorax. Each story is told through musical “tellings” as the characters dance along to the beloved stories! To accompany the famous characters are synchronized dancers, upbeat music and a giant storybook with pictures that stands in the background.

But perhaps the best part about Oh! The Stories You’ll Hear isn’t actually the stories or the high-energy production you’ll experience but who you’ll meet after the show. Some of Dr. Seuss’ favorite characters will come off the pages of the storybook and the stage to meet, greet and sign autographs for adoring children and even some adults. It’s a little known gem in the park so there usually isn’t a long line to meet the characters, which means you’ll have more time to snap a photo and chat with The Lorax, Sam I am, Thing 1, Thing 2 or whoever else might appear for the day.

After watching the whimsical show and meeting your favorite Dr. Seuss character, go ahead and take a trip inside some of the doctor’s stories by taking a ride on “The Cat in the Hat,” “Carosuessel” “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish,” “If I Ran the Zoo” and more. You can even enjoy some food from the quick service Green Eggs and Ham building.
