Universal Orlando Resort is the Central Florida home of Harry Potter, with the rousing success of the Wizarding World and Diagon Alley set to open this summer. That makes it the perfect spot for A Celebration of Harry Potter, which is in full swing this weekend.

The celebration is a mix of expo exhibits, presentations, and panel discussions, all of which are included with your admission ticket. What can you see if you decide to hit the Expo, which is at Universal Studios Florida? This list will give you a small sampling of all the things you can see and do.

Bring your camera, and be prepared to spend a lot of time browsing, chatting, snapping photos, and even buying some souvenirs. You'll be surprised at how quickly time gets away from you once you're inside and seeing everything from Gringotts to authentic props and costumes to the Sorting Hat to wand battles.

Don't forget to save some time to head over to Islands of Adventure next door. That's where you'll find all the presentations and panel discussions.
