Universal Unveils Exclusive Celebration of Harry Potter Souvenirs
Posted by Megs

The Universal Orlando blog has unveiled the exclusive souvenirs fans can purchase at this weekend’s Celebration of Harry Potter. Visit the Harry Potter Expo in Soundstages 33 and 21 from Jan. 27-29 to see all of the new souvenirs and exhibitors for this year’s event.

You can still purchase park to park tickets for the event, but all packages are now sold out. Get your tickets now and join us at the fourth annual A Celebration of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort! If you can’t make it we’ll be reporting from the event all weekend!

This year, we’re excited to introduce a commemorative A Celebration of Harry Potter 2017 wand. This exclusive design is specific to this year’s event and will only be available, in limited quantities, for pre-order at the expo – it will definitely be a MUST-SEE since this will be the only time this new wand will be available.

Also debuting at this year’s event will be a new Chocolate Frog Card featuring five-time consecutive Witch Weekly’s Most-Charming-Smile Award winner, Gilderoy Lockhart. A MUST-HAVE for Chocolate Frog Card collectors, the boxes will have a specific sticker indicating which contain the new card for two weeks. After those two weeks, they’ll become random like the other cards. You’ll be able to find the new Chocolate Frog Cards in the expo and both Sugarplum’s and Honeydukes.

For the more artistically-minded, make sure you check out the new art and displays from the graphic designers Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima, the creative design for this year’s event, new charms from the Lumos collection and more.
