We love the Christmas season in the Jones Family! This year may be a little different, but we were so excited to find an amazing new holiday tradition. Universal Orlando Resort started a brand new tour called the Universal Holiday Tour.
The Universal Holiday Tour is filled with exclusive access to holiday experiences across the Universal theme parks.
Universal Holiday Tour Details
The Universal Holiday Tour is filled with Christmas fun at both Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. Besides the holiday magic, you get to see back stage at the Universal parks and learn trivia tidbits.
Universal Holiday Experience with Macy’s Balloons
You will get priority access to the Universal’s Holiday Experience Featuring Macy’s Balloons. This means you do not wait in line!!! YAY!
You can get up-close with larger-than-life parade balloons and stunning floats inspired by everything from iconic holiday staples to characters from popular animated films – and enjoy a special appearance by Santa Claus.
Holiday Tribute Store
Embark on a tour of the first-ever Holiday Tribute Store, featuring four incredibly-themed rooms – including one inspired by The Grinch. The Holiday Tribute Store is stocked with a variety of new merchandise.
The Grinch & Hot Cocoa Bar
This was my favorite! We got to experience a private meet and greet with the The Grinch at Circus McGurkus Cafe Stoo-pendous in Seuss Landing. You also get to enjoy the Hot Cocoa Bar and unlimited cookies.
Private Viewing of “The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle”
Cap off the evening in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade at Islands of Adventure with an exclusive showing of “The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle” – a stunning projection of holiday spirit and Christmas moments inspired by the beloved “Harry Potter” stories.
This is a private viewing of this show (after the park is closed). You will also get time to explore Hogsmeade, so bring your interactive wands.
Free Harry Potter Souvenir
To help you remember this magical Universal Holiday Tour, you will also receive a special Harry Potter ornament (one per person) at the end of the night.
Universal Holiday Tour Price
Pricing start at $59.99 (plus tax) per person for the Universal Holiday Tour.
Admission into the Universal Parks (with Park to Park tickets or Annual Passes) is also required. With this tour, you will be hopping between the Universal Parks (even going backstage).
