The holidays are a magical time of year, complete with special events almost everywhere. For a different – and warm-weather – getaway this season, consider spending the holidays at Universal Orlando Resort.
If your family is full of Harry Potter fans, you can enjoy Christmas cheer in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort. Enjoy holiday-themed food and entertainment as you take in the decorations that adorn Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley. And in addition, you’ll experience Hogwarts Castle as it brings incredible Christmas moments inspired by the Harry Potter series to life through projection mapping and lights.
Grinch fans will delight in the “Grinchmas Who-liday Spectacular,” a live retelling of the Dr. Seuss favorite. Enjoy Grinchmas throughout Seuss Landing at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, and even have breakfast with the Grinch and friends throughout the holiday season.
Macy’s holiday parade
Universal Orlando visitors also have an exciting opportunity to experience Universal’s Holiday Parade featuring Macy’s. This parade offers new balloons and incredibly detailed floats that can’t be seen anywhere else – all designed exclusively for Universal Orlando. The festivities also include all of your favorite characters from Universal classics like Despicable Me, Madagascar and Shrek.
