Universal will hold its third Harry Potter fan fest at its theme parks in January

Universal Orlando Resort announced Wednesday that it will hold its third Celebration of Harry Potter, a three-day fan fest at the theme park with actors and production designers from the films, interactive exhibits and the return of the Harry Potter Expo. The special gathering will take place Jan. 29-31 and vacation packages go on sale at noon Aug. 19 starting at $129 per adult per night at universalorlando.com/celebration. These packages sold out quickly the last two years because they include special access to the Potter Expo, admission to a private evening reception in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and special access to panels and demonstrations. Even if you don't buy a special package, all visitors can see most of the events and panels in the park, like the Q&A sessions with movie actors or the Potter Expo, which brings in collectible items to buy, movie props to pose with, a Sorting Hat section and other activities and demonstrations. The talent lineup hasn't been announced yet, but last year's panel brought the actors who played Dumbledore, Luna and the Weasley twins. — Sharon Kennedy Wynne,Times staff writer
