The Universal Orlando Resort blog has released some new details for Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley! The post reveals that The Frog Choir and Celestina Warbeck will be partaking in the holiday cheer with new concerts! The festivities begin November 18th and run through January 6th!

Every night in Hogsmeade Village at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, you’ll be able to see The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle. Using the latest in projection-mapping technology, Hogwarts Castle will completely transform this holiday season.

A spell will be cast on Hogwarts Castle, illuminating it in festive décor, candlelight and moments inspired by the films.

Imagine seeing the ghosts of Hogwarts singing carols, students riding broomsticks and creating snowmen, a moment inspired by the Yule Ball and many more surprises.

This experience is available multiple times throughout the evening, with later shows providing the best viewing experience.

Frog Choir

Also in Hogsmeade, you can see the Hogwarts Frog Choir perform.

Donning their house scarves, the Frog Choir has a brand-new collection of holiday carols:

  • “Christmas at Hogwarts” – This wizarding carol casts a Christmas spell that echoes through the halls of Hogwarts.
  • “We Wish You A Merry Christmas” – The choir will bring a new and festive life to this classic holiday song.
  • “The Most Magical Yule Ball of All” – Hosting the TriWizard Tournament also brings with it a magical event known as the Yule Ball. This song captures all the magic, elegance and wonder of this very special night.
  • “I Cast a Spell On Father Christmas” – This fun song is a cautionary tale asking young wizards to be sure of the incantation before casting a spell.

Their signature 5-part harmonies will spread Christmas croaks and holiday cheer!

Celestina Warbeck

The Christmas carols don’t stop there. Take the Hogwarts Express over to Diagon Alley in Universal Studios Florida to see the singing sorceress Celestina Warbeck and her Banshees.

They’re conjuring four new tunes from her chart-topping holiday album, Nothin’ Like A Holiday Spell with hits like:

  • “Nothing Like a Holiday Spell” – There are many spells and charms in the wizarding world. But during this time of year, conjuring warm feelings of yuletide cheer is the most magical spell of all.
  • “Accio Christmas” – This calypso inspired song officially brings a Christmas rhythm of the islands to the British Isles.
  • “My Baby Gave Me a Hippogriff for Christmas” – Have you ever received a gift that wasn’t exactly what you were expecting? This song describes one such moment our singing sorceress experienced.
  • “A Witch and Wizard’s Wintry Wondrous Land” – This classic wizarding carol shows there’s nothing more lovely than sharing the Christmas season with family friends—and of course Celestina’s fans
