Universal Resort’s All-New Holidays Celebration Brings More Experiences Than Ever Before

inline imageGuests can enjoy an epic holiday celebration, featuring new experiences like Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Universal’s Holiday Parade featuring Macy’s and beloved classics like Grinchmas, Mannheim steamroller concerts and more.

Starting Nov. 18, holiday cheer – and a little mischief here and there – will take over Universal Orlando Resort for its destination-wide Holidays celebration. Guests of all ages will enjoy a festive celebration like no other with more dates than ever before. At Universal Orlando guests can witness the magic of Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, watch all-new larger-than-life balloons and incredible entertainment fill the streets during the all-new Universal’s Holiday Parade featuring Macy’s, uncover the true meaning of Grinchmas, rock around the Music Plaza Stage to Mannheim Steamroller – and more.

Universal Orlando Resort’s Holidays celebration will run daily from Nov. 18 to Jan. 6 and include the following festivities:

NEW! Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter
For the first time at Universal Orlando Resort, Christmas is coming to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Guests will be surrounded by uniquely themed Christmas decorations, garlands and lights as they walk the streets of Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley. They will also enjoy special Christmas themed food and holiday performances by the Frog Choir and Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees. And as night falls - state-of-the-art projection mapping and lighting will wrap Hogwarts castle, bringing incredible Christmas moments inspired by the Harry Potter series to life.



NEW! Universal’s Holiday Parade featuring Macy’s
Universal Orlando Resort is partnering with Macy’s, the global leader in balloon entertainment, to bring a brand-new parade to Universal Studios Florida. Universal’s Holiday Parade featuring Macy’s will feature more than a dozen new festive balloons and over 15 incredibly detailed floats that can’t be seen anywhere else – all designed exclusively for Universal Orlando. The parade will also include appearances by the Minions and other favourite characters from Despicable Me, Madagascar and Shrek – and the jolly man himself, Father Christmas.

Grinchmas
Guests will watch the Grinch’s heart grow three sizes during a live retelling of Dr. Seuss’s holiday classic in the “Grinchmas Who-liday Spectacular” and join the merry Whos from Who-ville as they celebrate the true meaning of the season and bring Grinchmas to life throughout Seuss Landing at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. And, on sale now, guests can enjoy a festive breakfast with the Grinch and his friends on select dates.

Mannheim Steamroller
Holiday music sensation, Manheim Steamroller, returns to Universal Orlando to spread cheer for all to hear during live concerts at Universal Studios Florida on Nov. 18, 19, 25, 26 and Dec. 2, 3, 9, 10, 16 and 17.

Holidays at Universal’s On-Site Hotels
Staying on-site is the best way to experience the Holidays celebration at Universal Orlando Resort. All five hotels will glisten with festive decorations and offer holiday activities, including tree lightings, menorah lightings, and Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve buffets.

EVE at Universal CityWalk
To celebrate the New Year, guests can dance the night away at EVE, Universal CityWalk’s dazzling New Year’s Eve celebration. Guests can celebrate the New Year in style with the largest dance floor in Orlando, live entertainment and endless decadent dishes and signature drinks. Tickets go on sale soon.

Access to Universal’s Holidays festivities at Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure is included with admission to the parks.

Weve been 4 times at Christmas, bit sad to miss out on the Harry Potter Xmas this year

Disney have always been great at Christmas but Universal have really upped their game over the years. My favourite time of the year is sitting in the morning sun outside Starbucks in Universal watching the world go by while drinking my cinnamon latte.

I'm easily pleased
