Spend Christmas At Hogwarts This Year In Florida For A Simply Magical Experience

You may not be able to spend Christmas at the North Pole, but you can now do the next best thing: celebrate the holidays with Harry Potter.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Florida will be creating its first ever full Christmas experience this year from November 18 to January 6. Everything will be covered with festive decorations and transformed into the wintry wonderland you remember from the books and movies. Even better, seeing this magical spectacle for yourself will cost you no more than standard admission.

The experience promises to be a truly enchanting one. The snowy village of Hogsmeade at Universal’s Island of Adventure will be festooned with green wreaths and festive garlands. The bustling Dragon Alley at Universal Studios Florida will get the same treatment, with each storefront decorated in a truly magical Christmas fashion.

Of course, the crowning experience will be a visit to festive Hogwarts Castle. Each night, the school will be transformed into a holiday dream featuring thousands of lights and wintery simulation thanks to projection mapping technology.

There will be live Harry Potter-themed entertainment a la the Yule Ball, and seasonal treats that are “taken straight from the stories.” Expect cauldrons of butterbeer and special snacks that would be right at home on the Weasley’s dinner table.

Since the festivities won’t start until the Christmas season, you have plenty of time to plan for your most magical holiday ever. Click here for more info and to book your trip.
