Harry Potter is the biggest attraction that has happened to Orlando since the Magic Kingdom opened at Disney World in 1971. During the weekend of November 11th through November 13th, 2011, Universal will be celebrating the Wizarding World of Harry Potter even more than they normally do with with the cast members and filmmakers at the Islands of Adventure theme park marking the 10 year anniversary of the release of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
Celebration of Harry Potter Films
The special events are part of two specialty-priced packages that include autograph sessions with the cast members and a nighttime gala on Sunday, November 13, 2011. The autograph session and gala is already sold out for United States residents but the Celebration Package is still available that includes a single in-park Question and Answer session with cast members of the Harry Potter Films.
Harry Potter Film Showings
In addition to the activities in the parks, all eight Harry Potter Films will be showing at the Citywalk Movie Theater including Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 .
The Universal FAQ states that J.K. Rowling will not be in attendance at the event.
