The Celebration of Harry Potter Expo at Universal Studios Florida has exhibits from places like Warner Brothers, Pottermore, Scholastic, and even the U.S. Post Office. Of course, no expo would be complete without MinaLima, that company that created the graphic side of Harry's world.

Click the video accompanying this article to hear from Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima about their work in the Harry Potter movies and also on the theme park side, including Diagon Alley, which opens later this year. You'll also see some amazing examples of set pieces if you browse around their booth.

The expo has plenty of artifacts from the movies in addition to the graphic work. You'll find props, costumes, and more. Jump to this article to see an overview of what you'll find if you drop by. It's in its last two days, running January 25 and 26 on Soundstage 33. Admission is free with your park ticket, but be prepared to wait in line. If you're a Harry Potter fan, the pay off is worth the wait.
