Experience the enchanting holiday spirit at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter during Christmas. Hogsmeade village comes alive with glistening lights, charming garlands, and festive wreaths. Enjoy special a cappella performances by the Frog Choir, explore village shops while sipping on hot Butterbeer, or indulge in festive treats at Three Broomsticks.

As night falls, “The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle” treats you to a mesmerizing light projection show, illuminating Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Watch as the iconic castle springs to life, accompanied by enchanting music from the Harry Potter film series.

Commemorate your Christmas visit with exclusive keepsake items like personalized ornaments, cozy sweaters, scarves, and stockings available for purchase in Hogsmeade Village.

Join in the lively ‘Grinchmas’ Who-bilation, now featuring an all-new daytime performance starring the Who-Bee Doo-Wops group. These musical sensations from Who-ville will have you grooving to hip-swinging, bell-ringing holiday classics.

In Universal Plaza, the iconic 65-foot-tall ‘Grinchmas’ tree, adorned with hundreds of ornaments and thousands of LED lights, promises nightly tree lighting ceremonies and a magical snowfall flurry, spreading good tidings and warm season’s greetings.

You can also partake in ‘Grinchmas’ activities like taking photos with the Grinch and his loyal dog Max, joining Cindy-Lou Who for daily story time where she shares ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas,’ and visiting the Who-ville post office to send a cheerful postcard.

A themed craft area offers the chance for joyful holiday decorating, whether you’re making paper ornaments to hang on the Grinchmas tree or taking them home as a holiday keepsake. Plus, indulge in delectable Who-tacular sweet treats like the Grinch Donut and hot cocoa, available for purchase.
