Holidays in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter
What better place to celebrate the holidays than the magical world of Hogwarts and Hogsmeade?! Every evening from dusk to park close guests can experience the Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle where the castle lights up in a festive spectacle of light projections. For some festive entertainment, guests can listen to Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees perform their holiday hits like “My Baby Gave Me a Hippogriff for Christmas” in Diagon Alley. Or, see the Frog Choir take the stage in Hogsmeade with their classic carols like “Christmas at Hogwarts”.
Don’t miss out on trying the hot Butterbeer, a delicious warm version of the fan-favorite Harry Potter beverage. You can also take home a piece of the wizarding world with fantastic merchandise like house ornaments, stockings, and sweaters.
The whimsical Seuss Landing gets decked out in Who-liday charm and cheer to celebrate Grinchmas. Be sure to check out The Grinchmas Who-liday Spectacular: a live retelling of the classic tale starring the Grinch, featuring music recorded by Mannheim Steamroller. You can also interact with Whos as they spread holiday cheer and even meet the Grinch himself! Snap a photo with him at All The Books You Can Read bookstore.
Don’t forget to grab your special holiday Grinch merchandise!
No holiday trip is complete without tasty seasonal treats! Most of the restaurants across the resort offer seasonal eats and drinks. You can definitely count on special doughnuts, holiday snacks and treats (hello hot chocolate bombs!), cocktails, and comfort food to satisfy your cravings!
