December 2019 at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando

Christmastime is always extra special at Universal Orlando Resort! And I hear from impeccable sources that not even The Grinch can steal holiday joy this year! From November 14 – January 3rd, you can get in on the mind-blowing, mischief-making, action-packed adventure of a lifetime.

Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™

In Universal Studios Florida, see Diagon Alley and London transformed with festive décor and brilliant lighting. Sip on a hot Butterbeer™ while enjoying a special show by Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees.

Over at Islands of Adventure, the shops in Hogsmeade have been dressed to impress. Here, enjoy your hot Butterbeer while the Frog Choir sings seasonal melodies.
