Get Ready for Christmas in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood

When the general population thinks about winter, snow and twinkly lights usually come to mind. Most Potterheads, however, immediately find their thoughts drifting to Hogwarts covered in snow and visits to Hogsmeade filled with sweet wizard candy and creamy butterbeer. At the end of 2020, most public places were still closed to big crowds, but thankfully, this year is different, and you’ll be happy to know that Universal Studios Hollywood is ready to celebrate with a big bash. Yes, this year, you can look forward to Christmas in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter once again. How’s that for some cheer?

Get ready to feel festive and celebrate the magic while you’re at it because starting November 26, you can enjoy a magical walk through the streets of Hogsmeade while enjoying some jolly vibes and festive decor. Keep a lookout for the Hogwarts Frog Choir, which will be around to delight guests with a cappella performances. Once you’re cold from exploring outside, you can enjoy some more festive vibes at the Three Broomsticks, which is going to offer some delicious savory treats. If you stay until dusk, you’ll be treated to a light projection show illuminating Hogwarts Castle.

If you have any Galleons left after visiting the Three Broomsticks, you can also shop for keepsakes to remember the experience. Exclusive items will be available for purchase, including scarves, stockings, and personalized ornaments.

Christmas in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter will be running daily starting November 26 through January 2, 2022. This experience is included in the theme park’s admission price, and if you’d like to grab tickets ahead of time, you can head to its website.

Growing up, I was a massive fan of Harry Potter and my love for the stories grew as I got older. It’s no surprise then that I love writing about all things Potter related. When I’m not writing about all the magic, you’ll find me reading (probably something Harry Potter related), listening to music, or writing some songs.
