Wizarding World of Harry Potter to transform for winter holidays

Universal Orlando Resort to cast nightly spell on Hogwarts castle

ORLANDO, Fla. – Universal Orlando Resort is adding a touch of wizardry to its winter holiday lineup. 

For the first time ever, Universal Studios will cast a nightly spell on the Wizarding World of Harry Potter by turning Hogwarts castle into a holiday display. 

According to the Universal Orlando blog, The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle will see the iconic theme park building transformed for the season with projection-mapping technology.

Ghosts of Hogwarts will sing carols on the castle, while moments inspired by the Yule Ball will surprise guests.

The Frog Choir has added new holiday carols to their playlist, and Celestina Warbeck will croon with her Banshees over at Diagon Alley.

Theme park officials said there will also be new holiday foods, drinks and entertainment throughout both parks.
