As if the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at both parks at Universal Orlando wasn’t magical enough, prepare for more… a lot more. Starting November 18, 2017, and running through January 6, 2018, guests will be immersed in the magic of Christmas as you stroll through the streets of Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley for the very first time. With the shops all decorated in festive garland and the holiday food being served right from the pages of the books. This magical experience will culminate with a very special holiday light show never seen before that will be a grand spectacle of Christmas spirit.
According to Universal Orlando, “The Christmas celebration will crescendo nightly as a festive spell will be cast onto Hogwarts castle, cascading it in décor, candlelight and festive moments inspired by the films. Using the latest in mapped projection technology, Hogwarts Castle will transform itself into a yuletide display, gifting fans with an amazing, new view.”
This new addition will expand upon the numerous Christmas Holiday experiences guests can enjoy this winter. “The new Christmas experience in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter will give guests a special opportunity to see, feel, and even taste what it’s like to celebrate the magic of Christmas in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World,” Universal said in a statement.
