The Holidays Return to Universal Orlando Resort

The Holidays Return November 22- December 31, 2024!

This is one of the BEST times of year to visit Universal Orlando Resort! Not only are the temps a little cooler, but you have:


🎄Christmas in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, with festive decor, hot Butterbeer, holiday versions of Celestina Warbeck's show and the Frog Choir, and The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts holiday show on the castle


🎄Grinchmas in Suess Landing, including the Grinchmas Wholiday Spectacular, and a meet & greet with the Grinch and a few holiday Whos - plus the CUTEST holiday decor ever!


🎄Universal’s Holiday Parade featuring Macy’s balloons- just incredible to see in person- they are huge!


🎄Earl the Squirrel, and his giant Christmas tree


🎄Holiday version of the Blues Brothers show


🎄Seasonal sweet treats, merchandise, and the hotels all put up trees and decorations


🎄Breakfast with the Grinch (separate reservation required)


🎄And my personal holiday favorite- the Holiday Tour! This VIP experience includes the best of the holiday offerings, including a reserved seat for the Grinchmas Wholiday Spectacular stage show, a private meet n' greet with the Grinch, a visit to the giant Christmas tree, a ride on a select attraction, cookies, cocoa and lots of holiday goodies to munch and sip at a private dessert party, a private meet with Santa, and then a private after-hours viewing of the Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts holiday show (which this alone is worth the price of the tour). SOOOO many incredible photo ops, and the park is just dazzling with all the holiday decor and no other guests around. I highly recommend this tour. Separate reservations are required, and will open for booking closer to the holidays.
