Universal Announces Harry Potter Weekend

Harry Potter fans, rejoice! Universal Orlando is dedicating a whole weekend to your favorite wizard in January.

The event, scheduled for Jan. 24 to 26, 2014 and planned in conjunction with Warner Brothers, will feature Q&A sessions with cast members, a film tribute, and wand demonstrations, along with a special evening reception. There will also be special early admission to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and breakfast at Three Broomsticks.

Packages go on sale Aug. 22 and cost $395 per adult for the off-site hotel celebration and $675 for the on-site celebration. Annual passholders will have access to the event, but not the reception. More details will follow.

One might see the event as a vehicle for generating excitement for Diagon Alley, the new Harry Potter attraction at Universal Studios, which is still under construction and scheduled to open later in 2014. The three-day package does include access to Universal Studios.
