Celebration of Harry Potter in January, 2014

On January 24, 25 and 26, Universal Orlando is hosting its second Celebration of Harry Potter at Islands of Adventure - and if fans are lucky, they'll be able to see the London side of Diagon Alley in Universal Studios, too! Universal recently announced that James Phelps (Fred), Oliver Phelps (George) and Evanna Lynch (Luna) will be appearing at a Q&A with fans - who will also learn more about Pottermore, enjoy a wand dueling demonstration, learn about the visual look and feel of the filmed Potterverse and check out costumes and props from the Harry Potter Exhibition. Some will even get Sorted by the Sorting Hat as well.
On January 23 at about 10:30 AM (Eastern US Standard Time); those who've signed up in advance will be able to view a webcast with more information about the Diagon Alley expansion. Will you be watching? If you can't, we'll be sharing the news in FictionAlley Park as soon as we can.
