Grand Opening: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Tonight, Universal Orlando kicked off the grand opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter with an invitation only event.  This included members of the cast arriving on the Knights Bus and Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint driving up in the Weasley's Enchanted Car.  John Williams conducted selections from the Harry Potter films.  J.K. Rowling was in attendance tonight but she did not want to take any attention.  She did have a small meet and greet with several children prior to the opening ceremony.  We will try to get video of the ceremony up here just as soon as we can.

Tomorrow morning will be another grand opening, this time for the public at 9:00am EST.  I have heard that some people are already attempting to wait for tomorrow's opening.  I'm not sure how that is going to play out with Universal and CityWalk security.  But don't fret kiddies if you are not there for the ceremony because you can see it all online.  That's right, the good people at Universal have set up a live stream.  Remember to be patient because there will be thousands of people trying to watch this so the feed may get wonky.

Be sure to keep checking back here and reload the page to see once we have some video.  If you're following us on Twitter you'll know right away.

Take the jump to Universal Orlando for the live opening feed.
