Universal Studios Hollywood Decks the Halls to Rejoice the Return of Holiday Favorites, “Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” and “Grinchmas.”

Beginning Friday, November 26 and Running Daily through Sunday, January 9, 2022

My friend Gaby and I had a blast meeting Grinch at Universal Studios!

Looking for a fun place to take the family this holiday season? Universal Studios Hollywood is a must-visit! I had the opportunity to go and check out the holiday festivities and I had so much fun! My highlight of the whole day was meeting the Grinch! I actually stood in line for about an hour but chatting and posing with him was well worth the wait! I loved “Grinchmas!” The whole atmosphere just puts you in the holiday spirit.

There are so many fun places to take holiday photos!

The jolly “GrinchmasWho-lebration returns in festive fashion as holiday park-goers will be rockin’ around the topsy-turvy 65 foot-tall “Grinchmas” tree in Universal Plaza, adorned with hundreds of ornaments and thousands of LED lights. A dazzling tree lighting ceremony accompanied by a snowfall flurry will take place every evening, bringing good tidings and season’s greetings as guests celebrate with The Grinch, his faithful dog Max and the Who-ville Whos, who will be performing on select nights. A selection of themed Who-tacular sweet treats, including hot cocoa will be available for purchase.

I had a blast posing with Max and tasting the yummy treats!

Isn’t Max just adorable?
Don’t miss the Tree lighting! It is super cool!

Families will rejoice at the arrival of “Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter,” where the quaint wizarding village of Hogsmeade™ is transformed to reflect the holiday spirit featuring merry décor and jolly ambiance. Guests can take delight in special holiday a cappella performances from the Hogwarts Frog Choir, stroll through the village shops while sipping with a delicious Hot Butterbeer™ and enjoy savory festive fare at the Three Broomsticks™. 

Beginning at dusk each night, “The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts™ Castle” dazzles with stunning imagery and animation as the impressive light projection show illuminates Hogwarts™ School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, bringing the iconic Hogwarts™ castle to life and infusing the land with the sounds of an arrangement of music from the Harry Potter film series.

Guests can commemorate their Christmas visit to Hogsmeade™ Village with a variety of exclusive keepsake items available for purchase, including personalized ornaments, garland, scarves and stockings.

The light projection show was quite impressive! You don’t want to miss it!

This was the highlight of the evening!
