We are just a few short days away from kicking off the holiday season at Universal Orlando Resort and we are still learning new details regarding the highly anticipated “Christmas in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.”
Universal Orlando announced several exciting pieces of information today regarding what we can expect to see in the Wizarding World this holiday season.
First, over at Hogsmeade in Islands of Adventure, guests will see “The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle.” The show promises the latest in projection-mapping technology, transforming Hogwarts for the holidays.
Viewers will get to see the ghosts of Hogwarts singing carols, students riding broomsticks and creating snowmen, a moment inspired by the Yule Ball and many more surprises with several showings each evening.
Guests can also enjoy a brand new collection of holiday carols from the Hogwarts Frog Choir. Their new songs will include:
- “Christmas at Hogwarts” – This wizarding carol casts a Christmas spell that echoes through the halls of Hogwarts.
- “We Wish You A Merry Christmas” – The choir will bring a new and festive life to this classic holiday song.
- “The Most Magical Yule Ball of All” – Hosting the TriWizard Tournament also brings with it a magical event known as the Yule Ball. This song captures all the magic, elegance and wonder of this very special night.
- “I Cast a Spell On Father Christmas” – This fun song is a cautionary tale asking young wizards to be sure of the incantation before casting a spell.
Finally, over at Diagon Alley in Universal Studios Florida, guests can enjoy a special holiday show from singing sorceress Celestina Warbeck and her banshees.
The show will include four new songs from the Wizarding World star’s holiday album, “Nothin’ Like A Holiday Spell.” The new songs include:
- “Nothing Like a Holiday Spell” – There are many spells and charms in the wizarding world. But during this time of year, conjuring warm feelings of yuletide cheer is the most magical spell of all.
- “Accio Christmas” – This calypso inspired song officially brings a Christmas rhythm of the islands to the British Isles.
- “My Baby Gave Me a Hippogriff for Christmas” – Have you ever received a gift that wasn’t exactly what you were expecting? This song describes one such moment our singing sorceress experienced.
- “A Witch and Wizard’s Wintry Wondrous Land” – This classic wizarding carol shows there’s nothing more lovely than sharing the Christmas season with family friends—and of course Celestina’s fans.
“Christmas in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter” and the rest of Universal Orlando’s Holiday Celebration begins November 18 and runs through January 6.
