I have to admit that I was in awe of this amazing light show! As night falls on the Hogsmeade village, “The Nighttime Lights at Hogwarts Castle” will shine brightly with an awe-inspiring spectacle that showcases the four houses of Hogwarts: Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin (Which one is your favorite? I have to admit that Gryffindor is mine!) that culminates with awesome beams of lights that fan into the night sky.

The colorful state-of-the-art light display and special effects projection, designed to dance across the stunning Hogwarts castle, will be accompanied by a special musical arrangement created by Academy Award-winning composer John Williams based on his original scores composed for the film series. The musical arrangement that will emanate in a surround sound environment was conducted by prolific arranger William Ross and recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra in London.

This new summertime feature will take place multiple times a night during its run. I had the opportunity to experience it earlier this week and was really impressed! It was also my first time seeing the whimsical world of Harry Potter at Universal Studios. I truly felt like I was in the world of Harry Potter. It is a wonderful recreation and I loved seeing people of all ages dressed in theme clothes and running around with magical wands. You also have to try the Butterbeer! It is simply delicious!
