Nearly 50 Universal Orlando Resort Social Media Fans attended the Meet-Up at the 2015 A Celebration of Harry Potter. To help get things started, Evanna Lynch and James & Oliver Phelps surprised the fans during a group photo!
Some of our friends, TheTimTracker, were among the 50 social media fans lucky enough to attend and they got video from their perspective of this unique Harry Potter experience in Diagon Alley.
What an amazing opportunity to meet some of the cast from the Harry Potter movies!
More about the Celebration of Harry Potter Social Media Meet-Up:
Universal Orlando hosted a special Social Media Meet-Up that provided an inside look at some of the art and artistry that has brought Harry Potter to life in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme parks. The Universal Orlando guests toured the grand marble hall of Gringotts Wizarding Bank with Alan Gilmore, Art Director for a number of the Harry Potter films and visionary for the new attraction in Diagon Alley, Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts.
Then, guests descend into the bank vaults to meet with MinaLima, the design team responsible for bringing the Daily Prophet, and more, to life. There was a chance for Q&As at both stops before guests embarked on an adventure as they rode Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts.
Lots more Harry Potter movie goodies awaited the Social Media guests. We’ll post more videos from our friends that attended the event.
