Annual events at Universal Orlando – complete insider’s guide

From the beginning of February 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.
