Enjoy some merry movie magic for the entire month of December when the fun turns toward the holidays at Universal Studios Hollywood.
There may be no place like home for the holidays, but Universal Studios Hollywood is making a case to serve as runner-up! Beginning on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 28 and running daily through Sunday, December 29, this beloved Hollywood landmark decks its halls and CityWalk streets for the holiday season. During the Holidays at Universal Studios Hollywood, the park transforms many of its famous attractions to cater to the upcoming winter holidays. All of the holiday cheer and merry joy is included with the price of admission and gives guests a chance to see some of their favorite places at the park in a different light. Two of the most popular Christmas-fied attractions are returning again in 2019!
Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™
As soon as you begin your stroll through Hogsmeade™, and take in the festive décor, holiday food, and seasonal merchandise (that you may of course purchase to start checking off names on your gift lists), you’ll know that the most wonderful time of the year has come to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter! What screams winter weather more than hot Butterbeer? How about having a mug while viewing the amazing light show, The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts™ Castle? The show is all-new this year, but its predecessors have never failed to get visitors in the spirit of the season. Tip: Don’t forget to check out the Frog Choir’s musical performances!
You would be a mean one if your visit to the park didn’t include a stop at Universal Plaza to say hello to The Grinch and his beloved canine companion, Max! He might grumble, but he’s always ready to make your selfies extra Grinchy. Along with many other residents from Whoville, these classic characters roam the area and make the Plaza feel very much like their fictitious town. At the center is The Grinchmas Tree, which is more than 55 feet in height and a sight to behold both day and night. Yet as soon as the sun sets, the nightly tree lighting brings not only music and illumination but a little bit of snow! Yes, snow… in Los Angeles!!
There are many more surprises in store as the park continues to put the finishing touches on this year’s celebration. If you are coming to the area to make some merry movie magic memories, the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel is a quick five-mile drive from Universal Studios Hollywood. Booking your stay with us ensures you will have a convenient and comfortable place to rest after a long day at the park! We hope to have the honor of celebrating a bit of the holiday season with you!
