Holidays at Universal Orlando

Visiting Universal Orlando is a thrill any time of the year for guests of all ages. There are rides and character meet and greets and so much more, all bringing your favorite films to life in magical ways. A visit during the holidays is extra special as the park turns up the fun and festivities. If you’re planning a visit this holiday, book one of the spacious villas at Fantasy World, one of the great Kissimmee FL resorts that also features special package deals, and explore all of the holiday offerings on hand this season at Universal Orlando.

From November 17 through January 6, Holidays at Universal Orlando will be filled with parades, special events, concerts, and festive decorations and goodies. For example, Mannheim Steamroller, the best-selling holiday artist of all time, will be performing live concerts throughout the holidays.

It’s hard not to be a fan of Harry Potter, and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is a must for any guest. Everyone raves about the experience and it’s going to be even better during the holidays as Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley are brimming with festive décor unique to each shop and location, along with special entertainment. There will be food and drink, including Hot Butterbeer, of course, live performances from the Frog Choir and Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees, and there will even be a state-of-the-art projection-mapping nighttime show, called The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle, turning Hogwarts Castle into a holiday wonderland.

What’s a holiday celebration without a parade! Universal’s Holiday Parade featuring Macy’s is a wonderful combination of merry and mayhem, with the Minions joining Santa to welcome in the holiday season. The parade also features lots of favorite characters, including from Shrek and Madagascar, so you know it will be a lively affair! To make sure you don’t miss all the fun, plan your visit to include at least one of these parade times: November 28, December 6, and December 14 at 5:15 pm; November 17-27, November 29 through December 5, December 7-13, December 15-23 at 5:30 pm; December 24 at 8 pm, and December 31 through January 6 at 5:30 pm.

These are just some of the holiday highlights at Universal Orlando this year. You’ll also find special holiday merchandise to remember the trip by when you decorate for the holidays each year. You could even put out a few decorations in your spacious vacation villa at Fantasy World, one of the perfectly located Kissimmee FL resorts for visiting any of the Central Florida theme parks.
