If you’re still waiting for your acceptance letter from Hogwarts, chances are you’ve always dreamed of spending the holidays in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter — and now Universal Studios is ready to bring those dreams to life.

Beginning Nov. 24 at Universal Studios Hollywood (the festivities kicked off at the Orlando theme parks on Nov. 18) and continuing through Jan. 8, you can get a taste of a snowy British Christmas without the chilly weather. 

Hogsmeade has been transformed into a winter wonderland — complete with festively decorated storefront displays, holiday merch and, of course, the much-anticipated return of hot Butterbeer (which, if you’re anything like this writer, will send you on a sugar high that would make a Hippogriff jealous).
