Running daily from November 17th to December 31st, 2023, the show begins each evening at dusk and continues every 20 minutes until the park closes. This year’s show promises to be a spectacular display, lasting about 10 minutes.

Visitors can expect to see Hogwarts Castle adorned with adorable Christmas decorations, magical crafting of snowmen, ghosts singing carols, and a recreation of the Yule Ball. The experience is made even more magical with the effect of snowfall projected onto the castle.
