We are never shy about our love for Halloween and all things spooky. So there’s always a level of sadness when the fog dissipates and HHN goes back into it’s crypt. Thankfully, the happiest season of them all follows up Halloween and USH pulls out all the stops. We love visiting Universal Studios Hollywood during the holiday season because there is no other park where you can come face to face with the iconic Grinch himself and see the gorgeous “Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle” show in Hogsmeade. Everything just becomes much more magical. We are so happy to see the holiday festivities return to the park after a long year away. Below, you’ll find all the information about this years holiday festivities at Universal Studios Hollywood!
