Each year Universal Orlando Resort host A Celebration of Harry Potter, a fan event that pays tribute to the wizarding world that J.K. Rowling created.
A Celebration of Harry Potter allows fans to become fully immersed in the movies and books. Not only can you explore Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade but you can learn to battle with wands, discoer the making of the movies first-hand from those who worked on them and hang out with other Potterheads. Each year, stars of the franchise also take to the stage to answer fan questions, an experience that usually brings about revelations and hilarious anecdotes.
