We’re counting down the days until it's Christmas time at Universal. If you plan on visiting soon, we’re here to give you the inside scoop on all things holiday wonder. Think a super colorful version of the Wizarding World, snowfall on Hogwarts, and everybody’s favorite grouch - The Grinch. If this sounds up your (Diagon) alley, we've got a list of the best things to do at Universal Studios Hollywood this winter 2019.
