Universal's Holidays Parade featuring Macy's

 

(11/22/17) Screamscape was lucky enough to be invited down to Universal Orlando for a couple days to see a preview of their massive new Christmas holiday season entertainment offerings, featuring brand new additions and the return of some classics to both Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure theme parks.

    The “Christmas at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter” entertainment makeover spans from Hogsmeade Village at Islands of Adventure over to Diagon Alley inside Universal Studios Florida as well. Just as you see in Hogsmeade, Diagon Alley has been decorated for the Christmas holiday season all over, and glows after dark from all the lights and lit-up garland strung all about. Stroll about the streets with a Hot Butterbeer in hand once you arrive, because the seasonal treat is not something you want to miss. You’ll also want to keep an ear out for the famous Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees show, as the singing group is now performing an entirely brand new show full of the most popular Christmas songs from the Wizarding World.

   The fun continues outside of The Wizarding World where on select nights between Nov. 18 and Jan. 6, 2018, holiday music favorites, Mannheim Steamroller will perform for the crowds inside the park.

    The big new addition for the year here is "Universal's Holidays Parade featuring Macy's" which is entirely brand new this year. This is not the same Macy's parade you may have seen at the park in the past... this is a full blown major nighttime spectacular parade the likes of which I don't think anyone has seen from Universal Orlando before.

    The parade features several beautiful and highly detailed floats covered with brilliant lighting effects, themed to various popular characters from the Shrek, Despicable Me and Madagascar animated films. These are mixed in with live street performers as well as an assortment of all new Macy's balloon characters flying above you. Since this is a Christmas parade, it can't end without a special appearance from Santa at the end.

    This new parade is sure to be a family favorite for years to come, something you’ll want to bring your family to see year after year.
