Christmas is coming to Hogwarts at Universal Orlando.

Harry Potter fans are getting a chance to see, taste and feel the holidays inside J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World with a new Christmas experience at the Florida theme park beginning in November.

Islands of Adventure Named Best Theme Park in the World

As night falls and the moon rises, the iconic Hogwarts castle will be consumed by enchanting special effects that exude memorable moments from the film. Sightings of caroling ghosts and students riding broomsticks will appear multiple times, with the better viewing experiences later in the evenings.

In addition to the illuminating transformation, magical performances and ornate garlands will line Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley, with each storefront splashed with unique-themed decorations.

The theme park also announced that a new Macy's holiday parade will also join the enchanting festivities.

The new Christmas experience will run from November 18 to January 6.
