Annual events at Universal Orlando – complete insider’s guide

From the end of January through the end of December, Universal Orlando always has something going on, starting with the Christian music rockfest Rock the Universe and ending, obviously, with a hard-charging New Year’s celebration – with, of course, the likes of Halloween Horror Nights and Christmas at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter landing somewhere in the middle.

Please use the navigation links below to learn more about each event.
