A Very Merry Harry Potter Christmas 2019

Published on November 2, 2018 by SarahE

With the flick of a wand, Universal Orlando gave us a Harry Potter Christmas in full-blown wizarding world of splendor.

Both Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley get a Christmas makeover for the Holiday season. Holiday events start November 16th 2019 through January 5th 2020.

There's holiday themed food, drink, decor, live entertainment and a spectacular projection show beamed onto Hogwarts Castle.

Spectacular Castle Projections

The icing on the Harry Potter Christmas cake is the magical holiday transformation of Hogwarts Castle.

State-of-the-art projection mapping and special effects wrap around the iconic castle. The show brings holiday spirit and memorable Christmas moments from the Harry Potter series to life-like never before.

The Harry Potter Christmas show starts around dusk and last for about 8 minutes. The show is repeated around every 20 minutes.

Live Entertainment

The Harry Potter Christmas makeover includes an array of live entertainment.

Over in Diagon Alley, Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees belt out songs from the Christmas album Nothin’ Like a Holiday Spell dressed in holiday finery. Songs include:

  • “Nothing Like a Holiday Spell” – There are many spells and charms in the wizarding world. But during this time of year, conjuring warm feelings of yuletide cheer is the most magical spell of all.
  • “Accio Christmas” – This calypso inspired song officially brings a Christmas rhythm of the islands to the British Isles.
  • “My Baby Gave Me a Hippogriff for Christmas” – Have you ever received a gift that wasn’t exactly what you were expecting? This song describes one such moment our singing sorceress experienced.
  • “A Witch and Wizard’s Wintry Wondrous Land” – This classic wizarding carol shows there’s nothing more lovely than sharing the Christmas season with family friends—and of course Celestina’s fans.

In Hogsmeade, The Frog Choir perform a bunch of traditional Christmas songs and a few spellbinding songs:

  • “Christmas at Hogwarts” – This wizarding carol casts a Christmas spell that echoes through the halls of Hogwarts.
  • “We Wish You A Merry Christmas” – The choir will bring a new and festive life to this classic holiday song.
  • “The Most Magical Yule Ball of All” – Hosting the TriWizard Tournament also brings with it a magical event known as the Yule Ball. This song captures all the magic, elegance and wonder of this very special night.
  • “I Cast a Spell On Father Christmas” – This fun song is a cautionary tale asking young wizards to be sure of the incantation before casting a spell.

What's On The Menu For Harry Potter Christmas

Holiday Feast: Both The Three Broomsticks in Hogsmeade Village and Leaky Cauldron in Diagon Alley are offering a two course Holiday Feast with traditional British favorites. The platter serves four and costs $64.99. Additional portions can be added at $15.99 per person. The appetizer is Winter Harvest Salad with mustard ale vinaigrette dressing. Main course includes oven roast turkey with a wild mushroom and sage stuffing. Sides include brown-butter and walnut Brussels sprouts, root vegetables, roast potatoes and English chipolata sausages. The platter is served with traditional gravy and spiced cranberry sauce.

  • Pudding: Also available at both locations for the holidays is a traditional Christmas Pudding with hot brandy butter and orange glaze.
  • Soup: Over in The Leaky Cauldron, there's a butternut squash soup drizzled with sour cream and topped with chives.
  • Butterbeer: This delicious sweet offering comes 3 ways - the usual frozen or chilled is available all year round, but during the Harry Potter Christmas events you can get it served up warm too. You can also get Butterbeer ice-cream, Butterbeer fudge and Potted Butterbeer Cream throughout the year.

Deck The Streets With Boughs of Holly

There's festive decor and ornate garlands lining the streets of Hogsmeade, Diagon Alley and the London Embankment.

Each storefront is decked out with uniquely themed decorations. 

It's not just a Harry Potter Christmas, there's plenty more going on for Universal Holiday Events. Check out the array of Holiday events planned at Universal Orlando.

Meet The Author
Our Florida journey began over 2 decades ago when we were searching for somewhere warm for winters. We discovered Florida was the perfect choice. We started spending every winter there and absolutely loved it. Orlando quickly became our permanent ‘winter home’. We were true Snowbirds! We decided to make our commitment a little more concrete in 2005 and bought our first vacation home – Serendipity at Indian Creek. We soon discovered we LOVED being in the hospitality world, so we decided to expand a little. We purchased Sleepy Hollow in 2010. Five years later we came across Serenity Lake House in 2015 and just had to have it to complete our portfolio. We now spend half the year on Disney’s doorstep in Orlando,. The rest of the time we're either in our second home in Scotland overlooking a beautiful Scottish Loch, or enjoying time with family in Cyprus. Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it? Ours is served with Pixie Dust on top :)
