It’s never too early to think about Christmas and thanks to the recently announced Christmas experiences coming to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando that’s all we can think about!
Because Christmas is so important in J.K. Rowling’s novels and film series, guests visiting Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley can look forward to new experiences featuring Christmas moments from the series.
“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.
According to the Orlando theme park, the area will be transformed in several ways. Guests can expect Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley to be decked out in holiday decor. Both wizarding places will also serve up holiday themed food, drinks and entertainment. Each storefront in Hogsmeade will have a unique holiday theme and new seasonal merchandise and at night, all of Hogwarts castle in Hogsmeade will be turned into a magical winter with the help of state-of-the-art projection mapping and special effects.
Universal will also debut a new Holiday Parade featuring newly designed parade floats from Macy’s, as well as festive balloons and some of Universal’s popular characters.
The holiday experiences will run daily starting November 18, 2017 through January 6, 2018.
