Harry Potter Expo brings fans glimpses into the world of the most famous boy wizard


Harry Potter Celebration recently wrapped up at Universal Orlando, bringing fans from all corners of the globe to celebrate what Harry Potter means to them. One of the big highlights of the weekend was the huge Harry Potter Expo that showcased all things Potter, including huge displays from the films, the studio tour, and so much more.



The Harry Potter Expo was the centerpiece of the huge three day celebration, and the only piece of the celebration that ran all three days, all day long. Guests could expect huge lines on Saturday and Sunday, making Friday the best day to get sorted into your house, see props from the films, and even meet the graphic designers who created all the artwork from the films.










Fans could step inside the Warner Brothers booth, get their pictures taken with Dementors, and even give their house a shout out on Pottermore. Displays from the Harry Potter traveling exhibition were at the ready, and guests could even get sorted into houses by the sorting hat.

Fans could also write what Harry Potter meant to them on the huge Muggle Wall, presented by Scholastic. They also had the chance to meet with the illustrator of the new covers for the book, Kazu Kabishi.


For fans who want to see an actual piece from the film, the Harry Potter UK Tour was on hand providing fans with a look at all the props, as well as a chance to pose in the Great Hall.

One of our favorite groups to talk with is MinaLima. The duo designed everything in print form from the films, including the wanted posters, the Daily Prophet, and tons more. They now have reproductions of all the film items for sale.
