The all-new Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter event feature magical additions to the park, and here are 5 reasons why this is an event you won't want to miss!
5) The Hogwarts castle will dazzle as it's transformed into a stunning light projection spectacular, a show similar to the Hogwarts house rally light show that wowed guests this past summer. This show will feature "colorful imagery and impressive dimensional animations that dance across Hogwarts castle" and the best part is that it will all be in sync with your favorite music from the Harry Potter films!
4) The residents of Hogsmeade village will decorate their homes and shops to celebrate the season with unique touches to the individual themes of each storefront.
3) Even the entertainment in the parks is adapting for the holidays. In Hogsmeade, the Hogwarts a cappella Frog Choir, which is made up of Hogwarts students and their giant frogs, will perform new holiday-themed songs!
2) If you're a fan of collectible Harry Potter merchandise, you're going to be obsessed with the new Christmas ornaments debuting in the park this season, including "a variety of decorative Hogwarts castle snow globes, Hogwarts crest and mascot ornaments representing each of the houses, as well as a collection of unique tree toppers and house pennant garland."
1) Hot Butterbeer is returning to the park. We repeat: hot Butterbeer is BACK!! And it's the perfect drink to help you wash down new holiday-themed meals within the Wizarding World.
