Witches might be more associated with Halloween, but the magical residents of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter can’t wait for the winter holidays. Wreaths, garlands, and more decorations have been hung with care throughout both Hogsmeade in Universal’s Islands of Adventure and Diagon Alley in Universal Studios Florida.
The entrance to Hogsmeade now features garland and pinecone decorations.
Even the Butterbeer cart is feeling festive!
Christmas trees that are decorated with the colors of the different Hogwarts houses can be spotted as well.
The gates at the entrance to the Hogwarts Castle also are decorated with garland.
While the rooftops of Hogsmeade are snowy year-round, we found some nice holiday touches like this snow-wizard and his owl!
The garland that lines the eaves of the shops in Hogsmeade has some gold ornaments; but if you look closer you’ll see that the golden snitch as well!
The eaves and doors around Hogsmeade have this beautiful pine garland with pine cones.
Even the ledges underneath the windows are decorated!
The roof line alone the entrance to The Three Broomsticks is also decorated with garland.
Garland lines the windows of Honeydukes as well.
Hard to deny — it’s the holidays for sure! Anywhere they can put garland or wreaths, there’s a wreath or garland.
Lots of garland around The Three Broomsticks as well, including at the entrance and around the faux fireplace.
Both the exterior and interior of Honeydukes is decorated as well.
Just like outside, anywhere they can fit garland, there’s garland.
Decor is no joke over at Zonko’s either.
The archways at the Hogsmeade train station are decorated with these beautiful holly berries. They add a great pop of red color.
Over at Diagon Alley, Christmas decor is also in place!
The fencing lining the streets of London have lovely rows of garland.
The entrance of the King’s Cross station has these oversized wreaths. The one on top is filled with lights as well.
The windows over the Leicester Square Station also have wreaths, but add arches of garland as well.
There’s some wreaths flanking the brick wall entrance to Diagon Alley.
Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes is ready on the outside for the holidays, with garland lining every single window.
If it wasn’t so rainy, this would be a lovely holiday romp through the world of magic.
Even the faux storefronts get garland with flowers within. Another has plenty of red and green ornaments to make the garland itself barely visible.
Ribbons and flowers adorn the garland at Madam Malkin’s.
Meanwhile at Shutterbutton’s Photography Studio, most of the garland and wreaths are in white.
Spindewarps Wool Shop departs from the typical garland to add giant ornaments made of yarn; a nice touch!
The Daily Prophet also has unique decor. With garland made of golden leaves upon the eaves and sign at the entrance.
Mr. Ollivander has some lovely wood-centric garland around his storied wand shop.
Gringotts Bank is in on the holidays too, with garland lining the attraction entrance.
Step into the covered areas flanking Gringotts and we see garland hanging from the skies . It’s almost like magic!
This wreath is one of the most creative, stuffing plenty of ornaments on in a delightful color pattern that looks just haphazard enough to be unique but not overwhelming.
