Universal Studios Hollywood is decking the halls for a wintry calendar of festive holiday experiences and an array of delectable treats.
The all-new “Christmas in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter” will take place daily from November 24 through January 7. The experience invites guests to celebrate this special time of year in J.K. Rowling’s compelling Wizarding World for themselves. As night falls on Hogsmeade village, “The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts™ Castle” will illuminate Hogwarts™ School of Witchcraft and Wizardry with colorful imagery and animations that dance across Hogwarts castle in tandem to a musical arrangement from the Harry Potter movies. The a cappella Frog Choir, comprised of Hogwarts students and their giant throaty frogs, will perform all-new holiday themed songs and the seasonal return of hot Butterbeer will complement the overall experience.
“Grinchmas™” returns with a Who-lebration of fun fit for The Grinch, his faithful dog Max and a roster of Who-ville Whos. The annual event comes to life with a towering 60 foot tall whimsical tree where Martha May Who-vier and the Who Dolls take center stage performing musical sets to usher in the Christmas season in style. The Who-liday Singers boy-band ensemble perform nightly concerts featuring a mix of Christmas favorites and pop rock. “Grinchmas” will take place weekends on December 2-3 and 9-10, and daily from December 15 through December 31.
You’ll find spirited holiday decor and festive whimsy throughout the theme park, including “Despicable Me Minion Mayhem” and the adjoining “Super Silly Fun Land” as a crew of very merry and mischievous Minions gleefully spread Christmas cheer to visitors of all ages.
The holidays at Universal Studios Hollywood is included in the price of theme park admission.
