Christmas At Hogwarts?

When adding to my plan, I get this message:

  • The Magic of Christmas at Hogwarts Castle is not available since sunset is too close to park closing on 2019-11-21! Remove that step!

However, I read (and really hope since this is why we changed our trip dates) that Christmas at Hogwarts runs nightly starting at 6 PM starting Nov 16, 2019.

Anyone know what is happening with the TP for Universal Christmas?

The show at 6pm would be after sunset since it is after daylight savings?

Well, that’s what I assumed, but I thought maybe it set a bit later there than here. In Nov it probably sets around 5:30 here (OH).

So, definitely ‘darkish’ by 6. I’m confused why TP doesn’t think I can add it.

November 21st? Sundown is 5:28?

Right, so if sundown is at 5:28, why does TP tell me I can’t add that step?

It might be a glitch or a issue with a setting. You might want to email They are very responsive .

I did reach out to TP and they got back quickly as you said they would.

The park is set to close at 6 that night. I hadn’t even noticed in the park hours when I checked. I thought all nights were 7PM. I guess there is one night a week that is 6. In the end, I’ve swapped my Epcot day for Universal (a 7 PM closing night) so there is sure to be a showing.

Thanks for the help!
