Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Wizarding World of Harry Potter transforms for the Holidays into a wizarding wonderland. The streets of Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley become adorned in themed decorations, garlands and lights. Sounds of special holiday-themed performances filling the air. Listen to both magical and Muggle Christmas carols from the Frog Choir – comprised of Hogwarts students and their giant croaking frogs. Enjoy the unique holiday hits of one of the wizarding world’s most popular singing sensations: Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees.

There will also be seasonal food and beverages – including HOT BUTTERBEER! Soooooo delicious! 😋

As night falls, enjoy a stunning projection of holiday spirit as the castle bursts to life for “The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle.”

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 :)
