Included in park admission, catch this half hour-ish parade nightly in Universal Studios Florida Park. Gather along the streets near the Mummy of Starbucks (for a more head-on perspective) for optimal viewing. So if you’re a fan of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, you’re going to just LOVE this one! Watch as larger-than-life balloons float through the streets of Universal Studios Florida! And don’t miss appearances by the Minions from Illumination’s Despicable Me and some of your favorite characters from DreamWorks Animation’s Shrek and Madagascar films. Also, what Christmas parade would be complete without Santa himself? But this is just part of celebrating the holidays at Universal Studios!

Christmas in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Double, double toil and trouble, something wicked this way comes…..is what we said for Halloween. But now, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is spruced up and saying “Happy Christmas!” There will be celebrations in Hogsmeade, in Islands of Adventure, and Diagon Alley, in Universal Studios Florida. Remember, in order to travel between the lands and ride the Hogwarts Express, you’ll need Park-to-Park Tickets!

Christmas decor isn’t the only thing you’ll find for the holidays at Universal Studios!

Though, yes, Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley will both be spectacularly bedazzled! You’ll be able to enjoy your hot butterbeer as you take in a holiday performance from the Frog Choir. In addition, Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees will be performing for all your holiday fancies.

And every night, catch the Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle projections and pyrotechnics. Not to worry, too, merchandise will also be available!
