Universal Orlando Announces Wizarding World of Harry Potter Live Webcast Event


Wands at the ready, wizards and witches!

Universal Orlando has just announced they’ll be hosting a live webcast event on January 23rd at 10:30 a.m. EST and revealing some details about the Diagon Alley expansion at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. The announcement video, featuring one of our favorite Weasleys (James Phelps), promises a sneak peak of what we can expect when the new area opens at the Universal Studios theme park in Florida next summer. Check out the video below:


This event is happening just one day before Universal Orlando’s “A Celebration of Harry Potter” weekend at Islands of Adventure. From January 24-26, fans can enjoy the parks and take part in a variety of events, including:

  • A Harry Potter Film Tribute
  • A wand masterclass hosted by “Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter” featuring Wand Combat choreographer Paul Harris and a special guest
  • Q&A sessions with select cast members and filmmakers

You can find out more information about that here. Let us know if you’ll be tuning in for the webcast and if you’ll be attending the park event. What part of the Diagon Alley expansion are you looking forward to most?
