4 Reasons to Celebrate the Holidays at Universal Orlando Resort

From theme parks to local celebrations, there is something for everyone in Orlando this holiday season. Fans of Harry Potter, Minions, and Dr. Seuss won’t want to miss out on all the fun at Universal Orlando Resort™. Check out our four reasons why celebrating the holidays at Universal Orlando Resort will make this your best holiday season yet.

Singalong at Concerts in Hogsmeade and Hogwarts

Don your house scarf and warm up with some Hot Butterbeer at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. From Hogsmeade to Diagon Alley, you’ll enjoy magical yuletide décor, food, and entertainment. Sing along with the Frog Choir in Hogsmeade as they preform everything from “We Wish You A Merry Christmas” to “I Cast a Spell On Father Christmas.” You’ll also want to catch the concert by Celestina Warbeck in Diagon Alley which includes your favorite wizarding carols.

See the Grinch’s Heart Grow Three Sizes

At Universal’s Islands of AdventureTM, you can celebrate the holidays with none other than the Grinch himself. Start your day with breakfast with the Grinch. Stuff your bellies with decadent buffet selections, then snap a commemorative selfie with the Grinch. Later that day, watch the Grinch and residents of Who-ville as they retell the classic tale. The show features music by Manheim Steamroller, who also perform live concerts at the park throughout the holiday season.

Be part of a Classic Holiday Traditions

Line up along the parade route to get an up-close view of some of your favorite characters. This beloved holiday tradition takes place every day at Universal during the holiday season. The Minions are front and center in the parade, adding a touch of mayhem and mischief to the holiday season. They perform their take on “Jingle Bells.” Shrek, Fiona, and Donkey are also part of the parade, as are some of your favorite characters from Madagascar. Make sure to stick around until the end of the parade when Santa Claus arrives with his reindeer and elves. In addition to all the floats and balloons, the parade includes more than 100 performers.

Usher in the New Year at EVE

With its signature drinks, popular clubs, and outdoor dance floor, EVE is everything you need to welcome in the New Year. Feast on unlimited gourmet cuisine including jumbo shrimp, roasted sirloin, and specialty desserts and drinks.
