Christmas is coming to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando

From FoxNews.com/Travel | Posted: 04-14-2017

EXCERPT:

ORLANDO, FLORIDA --- Spring may have already sprung, but for some, it's never too early to think about Christmas.

Harry Potter fans are about to experience the magic of Christmas, and plenty of holiday season delights, at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando. Universal executives announced on Thursday that a new Christmas experience will come to the Florida theme park within a theme park for the first time ever as part of Universal's annual holiday festivities. 

"The new Christmas experience in the Wizarding World 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 higher-ups said in an e-mail statement.

In the popular books and movie franchise, Christmas is as big a deal as it is for Muggles (non-Wizard folks).

Per the Universal press release, the park will be transformed in several ways, including:

  • At night, Hogwarts Castle at Hogsmeade will transform into a magical winterscape with the help of state-off-the-art projection mapping and special effects.
  • Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley will be decked out in full holiday decor, where guests can enjoy special holiday-themed food and drink along live entertainment.
  • Each of the storefronts in Hogsmeade will have their own individual unique holiday theme, along with special holiday merchandise.
