Universal Studios Hollywood will celebrate the most wonderful time of the year with the return of some holiday favorites, beginning Nov. 26, 2021, and running through Jan. 2, 2022. The holiday festivities are included in the price of admission.


“Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” transforms the village of Hogsmeade with holiday performances, savory festive fare at Three Broomsticks and an impressive light projection show illuminating Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Music from the Harry Potter film series will accompany the light projections. A variety of exclusive keepsake items, like personalized ornaments, garland, stockings and more, will be available for purchase.


The “Grinchmas” Who-lebration includes a 65-foot-tall “Grinchmas” tree in Universal Plaza, featuring hundreds of ornaments and thousands of lights. A tree lighting ceremony with a snowfall flurry will take place each night. The Grinch, his dog Max and the Who-ville Whos will perform on select nights. Themed treats will also be available for purchase.


Universal CityWalk will be adorned with holiday décor, including a 40-foot-tall tree with more than 200,000 LED lights. Voodoo Doughnut also joins in the fun with festive designs and seasonal flavors.

Celebrate the Holidays with Festivities in Wailea, Hawai’i

There is no better place to celebrate the holidays this year than Wailea, Hawai’i. Look to Wailea Beach to witness Santa and his elves emerge from the ocean in a decorated Hawai’ian outrigger canoe stocked full of candy canes, ready to kick off the festivities. Some of Santa’s elves will even surf Hawai’i’s great waves to make their way to shore. The entrance will be nothing short of special as they land on pristine Wailea Beach in front of the Grand Wailea Resort. Kids can meet Santa and take photos with him before he makes his way toward the resort.
