  • 3,000 Midnight Harry Potter Movie Fans Get Surprise Entry Into Wizarding World!

    Universal Orlando is a class act!

    Imagine the surprise of 3,000 audience members at last night's midnight showing of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at the AMC theater in Universal CityWalk Orlando. Following the film, they were escorted into Island's of Adventure's Wizarding World of Harry Potter where they had free access to all of the attractions for over 2 hours.

    Kudos to AMC and Universal for treating their fans like Wizard and Witches!

        That's the kind of AWESOME news that makes my heart sink and wish I was among them! Sounds like Disney's PIrates of the Caribbean fan day but not as impressive.

            I heard Dueling Drago - I'm sorry, Dragon Challenge was down due to noise restrictions from the neighbors and Forbidden Journey was undergoing its typical nightly maintenance, so neither were open. To my understanding, all of the shops, Hippogriff, and Ollivander's were all operating, as well as the food carts (including the Butterbeer).

            Still a fantastic treat, and really symbolic of the fact that while the last Harry Potter film has now been released, his journey into the hearts and imaginations of people has only just begun. Classy move by Universal.

              From my understanding, they didn't promote this before.

                Yeah this was a surprise or else I would have been there! This is Epic! Major, HUGE kudos to Universal Orlando for this!

                What a great way to really show you appreciate people's business!

                  And while the fans who get to go feel that they win and are treated to something special, it's Universal that wins from selling even more merch from super excited fans! Smart, smart, smart.

                  I don't even think Disney can do this because their merchandise really doesn't cut it in comparison. Only perhaps Star Wars could compete in that regard. But wait... Downtown Disney is too far from DHS. They couldn't practically do it to begin with. Womp womp.

                    Of course not - but when you do things like this.. or like the Director's showing up like they've done at Cali... etc.. then your 'on property' theatres build a reputation for being more then just your local neighborhood theater. It starts to build up a reputation/aura that it's above your local place and worth going there for.. even if nothing is specifically promoted.

                    'importance' is the word that comes to mind...
