Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle

For the first time ever, Christmas has come to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando. The park is also delighting guests with other festive Christmas entertainment including an entirely new Universal’s Holiday Parade Featuring Macy’s and the return of Grinchmas.

With so much to see and do at Universal during this magical time of year, Orlando Fun Tickets has come up with the top things to enjoy during Christmas at the park. Let’s take a look:

Hogwarts Castle in Lights – Hogwarts Castle is a beauty to see on a regular day, but this holiday season the castle will be even more spectacular as it is transformed through the use of projection-mapping technology. A spell is cast on Hogwarts Castle, illuminating in festive decor, candlelight and moments inspired by the film.

Universal’s Holiday Parade Featuring Macy’s – Universal has created a brand new parade for this year’s holiday festivities. In the all-new Universal’s Holiday Parade Featuring Macy’s enjoy some Universal’s most popular characters including the Minions, Shrek and Madagascar characters as they take to the streets and the air. The parade includes 16 new balloons, 13 of which were exclusively designed for Universal by Macy’s. Santa and over 100 live performers are also in the procession.

Grinchmas – Encounter The Grinch this Christmas during the popular Grinchmas Who-liday Spectacular. Seuss Landing at Unviersal’s Islands of Adventure has been transformed into Who-ville and includes a live retelling of the classic holiday tale starring The Grinch. Guess can also meet the green being himself for an autograph and photo.

Hogwarts Frog Choir – You’ve never seen a frog sing Christmas carols but this season you can with the Hogwarts Frog Choir. The choir takes the stage in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade to perform acapella wizarding classics and new favorites.

Mannheim Steamroller – Speaking of holiday music, the best-selling holiday artist of all time, Mannheim Steamroller returns to Universal Orlando select weekends in November and December. Mannheim Steamroller performs live in concert at the Music Plaza Stage.
