Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter movies) and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) will be making their first appearances at A Celebration of Harry Potter.

ORLANDO — Quick, Harry Potter fans, check the date on your enchanted galleons.

Original members of Dumbledore's Army will be gathering at Universal Orlando from Jan. 29-31 for the third annual A Celebration of Harry Potter.

Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint), Ginny Weasley (Bonnie Wright), Neville Longbottom (Matthew Lewis), Luna Lovegood (Evanna Lynch) and Katie Leung (Cho Chang) will be hopping across the pond to take part in a behind the scenes film talent panel discussion as a part of three-day event. No Slytherins made the cut.

It will be the first appearance at the fan experience event for Grint, Wright and Leung. Lewis and Lynch have been it attendance at both of the previous celebrations.

The park hasn't published a complete schedule yet, but during the 2015 event, the panel was held on both Saturday and Sunday with a special autograph signing on Saturday.

On top of being sorted, checking out Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley via the Hogswart Express, and meeting the artists behind the book concepts, fans will also be able to take a course from wand combat choreographer, Paul Harris, and hear from the movies' head prop maker, Pierre Bohanna.

Vacation packages for the Harry Potter event start at $139 per night. Park admission starts at $102, but the cost comes down to about $54 per day for multi-day packages found at universalorlando.com.
