A Real Life Yule Ball May Be Coming to Orlando

Universal’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando is still a relatively new place for enamoured Potter fans to visit, offering a magical immersion into J.K. Rowling’s world and an escape from the mundane world of Muggles. Recently, Universal reached out to the fans with a whole new roster of ideas and events including a 3D light show, a lavish holiday party in Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley, a nightmare show at Hogwarts Castle, and several others. But the one that really caught every spell mumbling fan’s eye was the Yule Ball. Yes, a real life Yule Ball.

You may have blocked out memories of frilly prom dresses and subpar dates from your memory, but you’ll want to remember this one. In the separately ticketed event, guests would be able to attend the ball (dress robe attire, of course) and dance the evening away to on-theme music. The exclusive event would also feature a lavish dinner in the Great Hall. Pass the butterbeer, please!

Universal has yet to officially announce such an event, but we’re all crossing our fingers. In the meantime, keep your eyes peeled for deals on dress robes, as you may be debuting your Potter garb sooner than you think.
