Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – visitor’s guide & insider tips

For the first time ever, Christmas will be in full effect at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter!

Encompassing both Hogsmeade in Islands of Adventure and Diagon Alley in Universal Studios Florida, the holiday party will have new experiences to make guests feel as if they’ve stepped into their favorite films to celebrate the season with Harry and his friends.

While not very many specifics have been divulged just yet, the basics have all been laid out – and, man, do they sound exciting.

There are four different parts to Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.  A slew of holiday decorations (including individualized decor for each of the wizarding shops) will cover both Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley from end to end; new seasonal food and drink options – which, we’re sure, hot Butterbeer will be a part of – will be on hand; festive live entertainment will get you in the spirit, with new Yuletide performances by the Frog Choir, Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees, and London’s street buskers; and, finally – and most excitedly – a state-of-the-art projection-mapping nighttime show will transform Hogwarts Castle into a holiday wonderland, bringing “Christmas moments inspired by the Harry Potter series to life.”

We’ll be sure to update this page as we get closer to the event’s November 18 kick-off. Until then, use the links below to continue learning all about everything else that Universal Orlando has to offer during the holidays this year.

Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter will run from Saturday, November 18, 2017 to Saturday, January 6, 2018.
