‘The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle’ Returning for 2023 Holidays at Universal’s Islands of Adventure

The holiday season is almost upon us. At Universal Orlando Resort, holiday celebrations will officially kick off on November 17. Bookings opened on Thursday for holiday offerings, including for Universal’s Holiday Tour. The tour includes a vague mention of an “after-hours showing of a stunning nighttime projection show,” likely The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle, which Universal confirmed was returning.

The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle is a projection show performed on Hogwarts Castle in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade each year. It’s listed on the Universal Orlando Resort webpage for Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and will be performed from dusk until park close.

The offering listed for Universal’s Holiday Tour is vague, but seems to refer to after-hours performances of The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle. Here is the list of offerings as part of the tour:

  • Exclusive meeting with the Grinch™ and his faithful dog, Max
  • Reserved seating for The Grinchmas™ Who-liday Spectacular
  • Light bites, desserts and more
  • Private Meet and Greet with Santa
  • Priority access to one (1) attraction (subject to Tour itinerary at Universal’s discretion)
  • An after-hours showing of a stunning nighttime projection show.
