1. Holidays in Hogsmeade
As Halloween is on its way out, the Holidays at Hogwarts are back in Hogsmeade. Lights, ornaments, and garlands can be found all throughout The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade. Storefronts are bedecked in Christmas cheer, and the snowy rooftops that provide winter wonder year-round look better than ever with the complementary decor.
The holidays at Universal Orlando Resort will take place from November 13 through January 2. Check out our guide on Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter here.
