ORLANDO, FLA. (WHDH) – The holidays are a magical time of year. Now Universal Orlando’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter will bring more magic to us muggles with new Christmas festivities planned.
Both Universal Orlando’s Diagon Alley and Islands of Adventure’s Hogsmeade will celebrate the holidays with live entertainment, festive decorations lining the streets, and specialty food and drinks from the popular book and movie series.
Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees will take the stage for a brand-new holiday performance that will include new songs like, “Nothing like a Holiday Spell” and “Accio Christmas.” The Frog Choir will also join in on the festivities with three brand-new holiday songs, including “The Most Magical Yule Ball of All.”
The resort also announced that they will create nighttime special effects projected on Hogwarts castle, with what Universal says is a breathtaking projection-mapping experience where guests will see incredible holiday moments inspired by the Harry Potter series on the iconic castle. J.K. Rowling’s series will provide inspiration for the Christmas themes throughout both parks.
