Yeah, we’re still just looking forward to the Halloween season and Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando. But did you know that Universal has big plans for the holidays, too? That’s right — and Universal just released the first details about what guests can expect this holiday season.

The holiday season at Universal officially starts on November 12th and runs through January 1st. Guests visiting Universal during that time will get to celebrate Christmas in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. In other words, they’ll get to drink a hot butterbeer while watching holiday performances by the Frog Choir and Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees.


Universal’s Holiday Parade featuring Macy’s will return this year, too! This parade features larger-than-life balloons along with some of Universal’s most iconic characters.

Grinchmas is also returning this year. Guests will get to meet the Mean One himself, the Grinch! Meanwhile, Seuss Landing gets a holiday makeover as Whoville comes together to celebrate the holidays. The Grinchmas Who-liday Spectacular show will return, too!

Just some Whos having some fun!

Mannheim Steamroller will bring its joyful music to Universal on December 3rd, 4th, 10th, and 11th.
