Let’s See the Seasonal Events at Universal Orlando

Party time never stops at Universal

It's common to sometimes hear stuff like “Ohh I went to this Universal event” or “I am ready for this massive festival at Universal”, meanwhile many of us didn’t even have a clue that there were any Universal events taking place. This has to end. Now. Or maybe after you finish reading this article.

It's time to leave behind the typical answer, “Sorry, I didn’t know Universal had that many events” in 2023. With the help of Famvia, you will know the many events that this beloved park celebrates during the year, and when can you be part of them. 

Let’s dive into it.

Universal events

Yes, Universal is not just a theme park. It's an immersive experience where guests can enjoy rides, shows, food, and merchandise, but it goes beyond that. The vibrant, joyful, and sometimes even spooooky events held throughout the year contribute to creating unforgettable experiences for visitors of all ages.

What events can I be part of?

Universal Mardi Gras: International Flavors of Carnaval

Bring on your best dance moves and vibrant outfits for one of the most fun festivals out there. This event takes place early in the year, and promises to go “beyond the bayou” thanks to a non-stop party that has been inspired by Orlando’s Carnaval celebrations. 

There are shows, live performances, parades, and special food that you won’t want to miss.

Rock the Universe: Florida’s Biggest Christian Music Festival

Faith and fun intertwine to create a truly unique experience that comes back year after year. Guests can enjoy two nights of impactful tunes delivered by featured Christian Music performers. Plus, they can experience the incredible rides and attractions the park has to offer, and let's say that Universal Studios has a lot to offer!

Halloween Horror Nights

Are you ready to unleash your screaming skills and get spooked by the eerie decorations, characters, and effects that Universal displays during Halloween nights?

Then mark your calendar for the Fall season, because this special event will be waiting for you. It has even received the Golden Ticket Award as “Best Halloween Event” for many years. Seriously, this event rocks, and it's one of the best halloween parties out there. Yep, in the world! In 2023 they had a bunch of fun Haunted Houses, with some of them based on popular IPs like Stranger Things and The Last of Us!

So, yep, be ready to jump out of your skin. Hey, and don’t you dare to go alone, unless you want to show everyone how brave you are. You can have more fun with friends! Oh, some rides are also way past midnight, so that's your chance to ride Rip Ride Rockit at 1am. Cool!

Christmas in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Looking to experience true magic during the most enchanted season of the year? Look no further! Hogwarts awaits you, adorned with festive colors and decorations that will make the place feel more magical and enchanting than ever before. I mean, it's Hogwarts. During Christmas. Of course it's going to look amazing.

Walking through Diagon Alley is quite an experience too, and don’t forget your special hot Butterbeer which fits perfectly with the Christmas aesthetic, the chilly weather and the park atmosphere.

Holidays at Universal Orlando

This joyful and festive season turns Universal into a dazzling and magical universe, where fun and entertainment never end.  Even The Grinch will be ready to celebrate this wonderful time of the year with you. He was super popular in 2023, by the way, with lines to take a picture with him easily reaching the two hour mark. Yeah, the same amount of time you usually take to ride Hagrid's Motorbike Adventure!

Universal’s streets are packed with vibrant colors, joy, and ginormous floating balloons. It's the perfect event for family and friends, certainly the little ones will enjoy it the most. During the parade, giant floats and balloons are stars of the show, so make sure to bring your camera.
