The holiday season is almost upon us, and everyone is beginning to feel the cheer, with one of the most magical places in the world, has already started their holiday festivities. The Universal Orlando Resort has begun their Holiday Celebration, allowing for visitors to experience everything from festive foods to themed shows. There hasn’t been any better time to book your trip with Universal Park, because who wouldn’t want to spend their Christmas at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter or meet the infamous Grinch before the big day. Just imagine the idea of having the entire family in front of Hogwarts, drinking some Butter Beer and getting their photograph taken, it’s something that seems magical.
Those who are dedicated to the brands associated with Universal Studios can accomplish their holiday shopping before the malls are overrun with bodies. Everything from Harry Potter, to the Grinch and Jurassic Park apparel, is available. This extends to collectable items; toy sets and the wizarding wands. It’s recommended that anybody booking a trip for the holiday celebrations at Universal Park should first go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Fans of the franchise can explore Diagon Alley, Hogsmeade and Hogwarts in this massive theme park. Just like with the films, there will be floating Christmas Decorations and numerous character carolling throughout the streets.
The Lightshows & Parade
Things would get boring quickly after everything has been explored, which is why Universal Park maintains two light shows that change every night. The 1st light show is the Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle, and the 2nd is the Grinchmas Spectacular. Watching the Harry Potter-themed light show requiring travelling to the Wizarding World, while viewing the Grinchmas Celebration requires moving towards the Islands of Adventures. Both light shows will make viewers want to re-watch their favourite Christmas and Magic movies.
There is the chance that your child might not be interested in the light show, but don’t fret as there is still plenty of things to do. Universal Park operates its own rendition of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, which is viewable every night during the holiday celebrations. More than thirty floats with characters like Shrek and the Minions appear in this parade, giving your children the chance to see all their favourite cartoon characters.
Finally, if the holiday festivities don’t appeal to you because of this childish nature, there are still dozens of theme park rides available for adults. Some of the most intimidating rollercoasters in North America are operated at Universal Park.
