The 2019 holiday season is officially upon us and we are so excited for our favourite time of year!
Spending the holidays at home with family and loved ones is always a treat, but if you’re looking for something truly magical, (and maybe to avoid that Boxing Day cabin fever) you couldn’t do better than Universal Orlando Resort’s Holidays Celebration.
Universal takes the seasonal celebration to the next level and puts a twist on the traditional. The whole family will love this incredible experience, when all of Universal Orlando is transformed into a holiday wonderland and a little mayhem and mischief is added to the merrymaking. It all begins November 16, 2019 and runs through January 5, 2020.
Your favourite characters -- including the students of Hogwarts, the Grinch, Shrek and the Minions – are going all out to make the most wonderful time of the year the experience of a lifetime.
Here’s a look at some of what’s taking place during Universal Orlando Resort’s Holidays Celebration
Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
What Harry Potter fan has never dreamed about spending the holidays in Hogsmeade? The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, one of the most immersive theme park experiences ever created, is transformed into a wizarding wonderland for the holidays! Imagine the streets of Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley decorated with garlands and lights while the sounds of special holiday-themed performances fill the air. The Frog Choir (made up of Hogwarts students and their giant croaking frogs) will be performing both magical and Muggle Christmas carols, and popular Wizarding World singing sensations, Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees, will play their original holiday hits. Vendors will also be serving up seasonal treats and drinks, including hot Butterbeer (yum!). As night falls, guests are treated to a stunning projection of “The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle,” as Christmas moments inspired by J.K. Rowling’s stories come to life projected on the exterior of Hogwarts Castle.
