A Celebration of Harry Potter coming to Universal Orlando Resort in 2015!
Universal Orlando Resort in Orlando, Florida, has just sent out a press release announcing that Warner Bros. and the Universal Orlando Resort theme park will be hosting the second annual “A Celebration of Harry Potter” expo in 2015! The park will be offering exclusive vacation packages and special attendee benefits!
“A Celebration of Harry Potter” is a special Harry Potter exhibition that was hosted at the WWoHP in 2014 where MuggleNet was live tweeting the event. Last year, the event included Q&A sessions with the cast and crew of the Harry Potter films, and MuggleNet was able to get some early access events, including food tastings at the park’s fabulous restaurants in Hogsmeade Village and a special preview of the construction of the Diagon Alley expansion (here and here) prior to the event.
This year, Universal will be offering access to these great events and more! According to the press release, all general admission park guests will have the opportunity to:
- Attend Q&A sessions with Harry Potter film talent and other special guests (attendees to be announced later)
- Experience and participate in the interactive and unique exhibits of the “A Celebration of Harry Potter” expo
- Enjoy special discussions regarding various aspects of the Harry Potter franchise
- Visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter- Hogsmeade at Universal’s Islands of Adventure and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter- Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida. Plus, ride the Hogwarts Express between the two lands with your park-to-park ticket
- And much more!
While the events listed above will be available to all general park attendees, Universal is offering some awesome event-exclusive vacation packages with additional benefits and reserved seating at select events. These special packages will go on sale starting at noon EDT on Thursday, August 21. The expo will be held January 30-February 1, 2015. For more information on the vacation packages, visit Universal’s celebration website here. Last year, tickets sold out in minutes, so be sure to get yours as quickly as you can!
In the meantime, here are some fun videos from the event last year with staff members from MuggleNet as well as cast and crew from the films!
