We let you know yesterday what scant details we knew about "A Celebration of Harry Potter," and now the floodgates have been opened. Florida residents and Potterheads should get fired up over this news: Universal Studios is hosting a big Potter bash at the park from January 24 - 26, 2014, and they've got a big ol' list of attendees you won't want to miss.

Besides panels with LeakyCon-favorites MinaLima, Wand Combat master classes with the world's only wand combat choreographer Paul Harris, and a chat with Potter set designer Alan Gilmore, they've lined up a Q&A with some of the talented actors that brought the Wizarding World to life. Who might you ask? Well none other than James and Oliver Phelps, as well as perennial LeakyCon guest Evanna Lynch.

Attendance is free with any Universal Orlando admission or an annual pass. Admission to the panels is on a first-come first-serve basis, however, so if you want to guarantee a spot, make sure you arrive early!

Universal has promised more details in the new year, but for now, here's what they had to say about the experience:

A Harry Potter Tribute

As well, Universal is planning to hold an Expo during the course of the weekend, details of which are below:
