UPI News Service, 04/20/2017
Universal Studios Orlando Resort will be debuting a new Christmas theme to their popular Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park this November.
Starting Nov. 18 and lasting until Jan. 6, 2018, the experience will include the addition of Christmas decorations and festivities to both Wizarding World locations -- Hogsmeade at Islands of Adventure and the newer Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida.
Included with general admission to the parks, attendees will be able to experience Christmas decorated storefronts and restaurants offering holiday-themed food, drink and entertainment.
Every night during the event, Hogwarts Castle will be at the center of a special-effects driven celebration that will include projections appearing on the castle with holiday inspired imagery and memorable Christmas moments from throughout the Harry Potter series.
Additionally, this holiday season Universal will be introducing a new take on their long-running Macy's Holiday Parade that will include balloons and floats from animated films such as Despicable Me, Shrek and Madagascar.
