According to Universal, beginning January 30, 2015, a three-day event will kick off, including "A Celebration of Harry Potter" Expo, Q&A sessions with Harry Potter film talent and more.

On Wednesday night, the park's Twitter team posted a picture with the time "10 AM EDT."  Earlier Wednesday, Universal sent a picture tweet reading, "CLEAR YOUR SCHEDULE FOR POST-HOLIDAY TRAVEL!"  On Tuesday, the park tweeted, "WHO SAYS LIGHTNING DOESN'T STRIKE TWICE?"

The first celebration drew tens of thousands of people in January while Wizarding World of Harry Potter Diagon Alley was still being built. 

Local 6 has heard Universal is now considering making the party an annual event.
