PICTORIAL: The Universal Holidays bring new magic, snowfall to Hollywood
Universal Studios Hollywood is celebrating the holidays and we were invited to check it all out this past weekend. Join us now as we share some of the memorable highlights for the 2018 Universal Holidays!
Snowfall in the Wizarding World
For the first time ever, snow actually falls in the Wizarding World. Pair that with the holiday decorations in the land and the nightly Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle projection show and you have quite the magical Christmas lineup!

Eats and Treats
This is not available year-round so we always seize the chance to have HOT BUTTERBEER.
Lard Lad seemingly pulls double duty supplying Who-Ville the base for some holiday delights.
Much to our chagrin, the Who Hash was sold out at the Universal Plaza Grill. The magical dish is comprised of Corned beef, cheese, tater tots!
