Fourth Annual Celebration of Harry Potter returns to Universal Orlando January 2017



In 2014 we got the very first look at Diagon Alley brought to life. In 2015 we dove deeper into the Wizarding World than we ever have before, and in 2016 we got our first look at what Wizarding Schools looked like around the rest of the world. What mysteries will be unfolded in 2017? We only have to wait until January 27th to find out, as the fourth annual Celebration of Harry Potter will return once again to Universal Orlando. We don’t know who or what we’ll see, but you can bet it’s going to be something you won’t want to miss.


The three day event takes place at Universal Orlando’s two parks, where the Wizarding World of Harry Potter serves as a living centerpiece for all Potter fans. The past few years have seen cast members from the films, technical wizards who have worked on the films and theme parks, and even those who have designed the look of it. January 27th-29th, all the fun will return, from the Harry Potter Expo, to huge demonstrations…and yes, even the cast of the films.

While we do not know who will be returning, we do know that the Harry Potter Expo will once again return, and feature all new surprises from Mina Lima, Pottermore, The Harry Potter London Tour and much more! Tickets and vacation packages are also now on sale!
