Jennifer Sangalang Florida Today Published 3:32 PM EDT Sep 11, 2018 Spell gone wrong? Universal Orlando Resort says it won’t be hosting its annual celebration of all things Harry Potter next year. But don’t worry, Muggles. The theme park giant is planning a new thrill ride and other experiences at one of the two Wizarding World of Harry Potter sections. The resort said Friday that the construction of a new thrill ride and other yet-to-be-announced experiences at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Hogsmeade in its Islands of Adventure park prevents it from hosting A Celebration of Harry Potter in 2019. Hogsmeade opened in 2010, and the park has expanded its Harry Potterverse every year since. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Diagon Alley, housed in Universal Studios, opened in 2014, along with the Hogwarts Express tram, which connects the two wizarding worlds. The annual Celebration of Harry Potter attracts actors from the Harry Potter movies for question-and-answer sessions, lessons on wand dueling and costume contests, among other events. The first was in 2014. The resort says it looks forward to hosting future Harry Potter events. For more information on the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, visit universalorlando.com.
