Two lucky fans will receive an unforgettable trip to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort, with the chance to showcase your love for J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World as part of the entry on social media!

Universal Orlando Resort recently added the incredible Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, and is home to both Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley, joined by a track frequented by the Hogwarts Express. The park today launched a social media competition, looking to gift two fans unforgettable trips to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios and Universal’s Islands of Adventure.
Evanna Lynch gives all the details in a new video:

As Evanna explained, entry is simple: Post a photo on their social media channels of what you’d wear to the parks if you won the prize. We’re talking all-out Potter fan, so get out your Hogwarts House robes, pull out your face paints or craft your best Weasley sweater, because this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

The two winners will be able to bring along up to three guests, and their trip will include:

  • Accommodations at a Universal Orlando Resort hotel
  • Early Park Admission to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter one hour before the theme parks open every day of their visit
  • 3-Day Theme Park Admission with Universal Express Passes
