Celebrating Christmas at Universal Orlando

Universal Orlando Resort always has something in store for the holidays. This Christmas, get festive at both Universal Studios Florida and Universal Islands of Adventure.  

Here’s what the parks have in store for you this year.

Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Universal Orlando's Diagon Alley

Whether you choose to spend the day in Universal Studios Florida or Islands of Adventure, you’ll get to revel in the mystical holiday spirit in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

As if watching Harry Potter didn’t already invoke warm, cozy feelings of the winter season inside you, walking around a merrily decorated Hogsmeade is sure to. Watch the Hogwarts castle illuminate the park and fill the air with Christmas spirit.

If you love Christmas carols, this amphibious quartet puts on an unforgettable seasonal show. Listen to the Frog Choir’s holiday tunes while sipping on a warm Butterbeer.

With a park-to-park ticket, you can take the Hogwarts Express to Diagon Alley and hear Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees perform original songs like “My Baby Gave Me a Hippogriff for Christmas.”

At The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, your Christmas is sure to be an enchanting one.

Grinchmas in Seuss Landing

Not even the Grinch can resist the spirit of Christmas. Venture over to Seuss Landing and envelop yourself in the whimsical holiday spirit of Who-ville.

See the mean, green, anti-Christmas machine in person during a meet and greet at Honk Honkers. Reserve a spot in the virtual queue with Universal’s app. Make haste as times are quick to run out.

As you await your one-on-one time with the Grinch, parade around Who-ville and strike a pose with the resident Whos.

This Christmas comes with a side of sarcasm, which you can enjoy plenty of during The Grinchmas Who-liday Spectacular. Enjoy live music and a retelling of the classic "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" tale.

If you get to the park early enough, you can also enjoy a festive breakfast buffet at Circus McGurkus Café Stoo-pendous. Find Seuss-themed favorites like Green Eggs and Ham and dine alongside the Grinch and local Whos for some much-needed Who-liday cheer.

Universal’s Holiday Parade featuring Macy’s

It wouldn’t be the most wonderful time of the year without a Christmas parade, and Universal Orlando has holiday lovers covered with its Macy’s holiday parade.
