Universal Studios Japan Casting a Magic Winter Spell

You can almost hear the iconic sound of John Williams’ “Christmas at Hogwarts” as the Wizarding World of Harry Potter parks around the world announce their plans for this holiday season. Previously, we told you about the plans for Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood; now, plans have been announced for Universal Studios Japan!

Beginning on Friday, November 10, 2017, Universal Japan will begin its winter festivities. In Hogsmeade, guests will have a chance to enjoy a Christmas tree and other seasonal decorations – at last, those snow topped roofs will seem appropriate!

In addition, a new projection mapping light show will drape Hogwarts Castle in “snow-capped spires and warm holiday lights” that are sure to make visitors brush off their dress robes and await the beginning of the Yule Ball! The show is titled “Hogwarts Magical Nights – Winter Magic.”

We can’t wait to celebrate the festivities of the holiday season at all three theme parks! Which one will you be enjoying (or wish you could enjoy)? Let us know in the comments!
