See recent posts by Lissa Poirot

Universal Orlando Resort will spread Christmas cheer this holiday season with a new Christmas Experience at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at the end of 2017. The amusement park will transforms the Harry Potter-themed areas of the theme park with festive decor and special effects from Nov. 18, 2017 to Jan. 6, 2018.

Although full details have yet to be announced, Universal did reveal that Macy’s will join the fun with a special Universal Holiday Parade featuring Macy’s. Bringing its beloved New York City parade-worthy floats and entertainment, the parade will run daily during the Christmas Experience.

Special holiday packages are already available, with four-night accommodations at Cabana Bay Beach Resort and three-park tickets that includes admission into all three Universal theme parks (including the new Volcano Bay opening this May), with rates beginning at $165 over adult, per night.
