`Harry Potter` celebrations planned in Orlando
Los Angeles: Warner Bros. and Universal Orlando Resort have planned a treat for ‘Harry Potter’ fans with the first Celebration of Harry Potter.
The three-day event, to be held in January 2014, will feature all of Harry Potter’s adventures - from the books to the films. It will also feature a question-and-answer session with the filmmakers, reports variety.com.
Universal is also selling special vacation package, which includes exclusive access to a private evening reception held in `The Wizarding World of Harry Potter` theme park. The package will be available starting Aug 22.
Most activities planned for Celebration of Harry Potter will be open to all Universal Orlando park guests and annual passholders, but only guests who purchase the special event package will enjoy exclusive benefits and reserved seating for select events, including early access into the parks, dining options and express lines for rides, the officials said.
Packages, which include hotel stays at Universal properties, start at $395 or $675 per person, depending on the type chosen on the company’s website.
Universal is also building versions of the themed area in Hollywood and Japan. It is also expanding its existing park in Orlando.
The event will be held at Universal Studios and Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme parks in Orlando Jan 24-26.
