    When I hit the celebration link, the Universal site has the HP Celebration list as occurring in the Spring. Is the Spring listing a misprint? Since it was January the past two years also, I would think the Spring listing is a mistake.

    Awesome! How soon after that will the special packages be offered on the Universal Orlando site?

    If I were a betting man, I'd wager on Fantastic Beasts having a strong presence.

    So, if I have an annual pass but do not want to buy the package, can I still participate in the events?

    It's insane that mails are prepared and events are planned for Jan and even later next year and I get them on my both of my e-mail account yesterday! One of them is for Potter and is so good! having the info also gives me an advantage and that is cool to. Unfortunately Briman will not allow it and delete it just like the mails I got for F&F and threaten me to be removed from the forum so I can't say anything but I can tell you it's really cool!

    lol, you can't just nonchalantly throw @BriMan under the bus like that. He puts in a lot of time and hard work for this forum to allow you to get your Universal fix. He doesn't have to allow any of us to post anything. Running a forum isn't easy. You may not agree with him, but this is his site.

    I
    I never would trow anyone under the bus. But as with F&F I get official mails that are written with a lot of details in them (times and dates) and they are awesome. I won't be in the country then but they are fun and I explain why I can't say anything about them just that fun is on the way if you can make it.
    PS: I also won't sent the mails to others so don't e-mail, I respect the rules.

    Not sure if this is new or not, but from the latest UONews, here are the panels for the event:

    I think they usually have some kind of behind-the-scenes panel about the making of the Wizarding World attractions, that's kind of a shame that they don't seem to this year.

    There's a panel called, Behind the Scenes: Harry Potter Film Talent. I'd assume that's it.

    That's cool. Sometimes people are just trying to be helpful though. I searched the thread, didn't see any info, posted.

    Looks like there will be no autograph sessions for the public, only package holders.

    It is so interesting how a park balances the flying in and payment towards minor celebs and signing up enough package holders to more than pay for it.

    I could never understand the desire to stand in a long line to get someone's autograph.
