Grab your dress robes and start practicing the steps to the Champions Waltz the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is considering throwing a Yule Ball.
For any muggles who don’t remember the formal dance from The Goblet of Fire, the Yule Ball is a gala affair held every Christmas during the Tri-Wizard Tournament. (You can watch a clip from the film here.)
And according to TravelPulse, Universal Orlando’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter might host a Yule Ball of their own this year.
Citing a report from the Orlando Informer, it appears that the Harry Potter theme park is trying to figure out whether people would sign up for a night of wonder at a Yule Ball themed holiday party in December. No divination classes needed to know that the answer is a resounding yes.
While the Yule Ball is still in a survey phase, and has yet to be officially announced in any capacity, it does sound like the park has a fully formed patronus …er, plan for the holiday party. The possible description reads: “Yule Ball and Great Dance Hall Dinner – ‘guests wear dress robes and dine/dance at a festive holiday Yule Ball with themed music, dancing, food and beverages' (separately ticketed event)."
If the Yule Ball does become a reality and not just a vision in the Mirror of Erised, get tickets and a date, soon. You don’t want to end up watching your own Cho Chang or Viktor Crum dance the night away with someone else.
And if the Wizarding World of Harry Potter doesn’t throw a Yule Ball this year, consider spending Christmas at any of these real life Harry Potter locations instead.
