We may not even be celebrating Halloween yet, but Universal Orlando Resort is already gearing up for Christmas!
If you have ever been to the Orlando theme parks during the holidays, you know that the decor, celebrations, and environment make it one of the best times to visit. At Universal Orlando Resort, Guests can enjoy shows, parades, and even see the Grinch in his true element while visiting Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios Florida.
In a press release, Universal noted:
Universal Orlando Resort will unwrap its 2021 Holidays celebration on November 13. Guests can rip open a holiday gift of nonstop awesome for 51 days and nights as Universal’s biggest and loudest holiday traditions and characters come to life with one-of-a-kind experiences across Universal Studios Florida, Universal’s Islands of Adventure, Universal CityWalk and the resort hotels.
On the Universal Orlando Resort website, it is noted that aside from the individual and unique celebrations that will take place at each theme park, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter will also be celebrating in a big way. At Diagon Alley, Guests will see a transformation!
In Universal Studios Florida, Diagon Alley™ and London are transformed with festive décor and brilliant lighting. You can savor a hot Butterbeer™, and the atmosphere is brimming with excitement as Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees have a special show prepared just for the occasion.
Hogsmeade, on the other hand, is all about the food!
In Universal’s Islands of Adventure, Hogsmeade™ embraces the holiday spirit as the shops are festively decorated with garland and lights. The Frog Choir sings seasonal melodies and hot Butterbeer™, a seasonal favorite, is served.
Personally, I hope to see The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle return as the projection show over Hogwarts. Considering Christmas was not celebrated at its fullest potential last year due to the pandemic, seeing how Universal is determined to bring their theme park experience back to normal operations, I am hopeful that this will mean a full holiday celebration! That being said, we have yet to hear specific offerings.
Before then, Guests can enjoy Halloween Horror Nights, one of Orlando’s most popular Halloween events beginning this September.
