Magical folk and Muggles alike will be flocking to Orlando this weekend for Universal Orlando's second annual A Celebration of Harry Potter. The event, which runs Friday through Sunday, is Harry Potter fan's dream come true. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a wand combat masterclass, see dueling demonstrations, and see unique and interactive exhibits in the A Celebration of Harry Potter Expo (located at Universal Studios' Soundstage 33).

And, the best part? Film talent from the movies will be in attendance for Q&A discussion and autograph sessions. Robbie Coltrane (Rubeus Hagrid), Michael Gambon (Albus Dumbledore - our favorite headmaster), James Phelps (Fred Weasley), Oliver Phelps (George Weasley), and Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) will be in attendance.

Update: Unfortunately, Robbie Coltrane was unable to attend the 2015 A Celebration of Harry Potter due to being hospitalized with flu-like symptoms. We wish him a speedy recovery and hope that he'll be in attendance next year.

Access to events within A Celebration of Harry Potter is included in admission to Universal Studios, however, a park-to-park ticket is required to ride the Hogwart's Express. Admission to panel events is first-come, first-served. Click here for the schedule of events. Hope to see you at #HPCelebration.

A Celebration of Harry Potter starts tomorrow but my journey begins today! I'll be flying down to Orlando thanks to an awesome online deal from Frontier Airlines. I got a round-trip flight ATL - MCO for less than $70! The low-cost airlines still has some pretty great prices on flights to Orlando.
