The Harry Potter Celebration at Universal Orlando Resort kicks off today (January 24) and runs through Sunday, with panel discussions, presentations, an expo, and more. Yesterday, in anticipation of the event and the opening of the new Diagon Alley area later this year, Universal held a webcast to share more information on the Harry Potter expansion. You can see it for yourself by clicking the video accompanying this article.

In the webcast, you'll see creative team members and actors from the Potter cast like Mark Woodbury of Universal Creative, Matthew Lewis (Neville), James Phelps (Fred Weasley), and Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood). It also offers a glimpse into the new area, including the Hogwarts Express, which will take guests between Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure, and talks about the new Gringotts ride, Knockturn Alley, and the new stores and eateries that will be part of Diagon Alley.

In the meantime, if you'd like to view the exterior of the area and take part in all the Potter festivities going on between January 24 and 26, head over to the parks. The fun is all included with your regular admission ticket.
