A Harry Potter Nerd’s Dream Vacation

Ever since it’s opening in June of 2010, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios in Orlando Florida has been on the agenda to visit for most fans of the books and films, however a recent announcement makes it THE place to be.

November 11-13 the theme park will host “A Celebration of the Harry Potter Films”.  The events include Q&A sessions and autograph signings with unnamed “cast members” from the films and admission to a night-time “gala”.  You also get hotel and park admission included in the final price.

As the stars are not named, I’m wondering if you’ll find yourself face to face with David Bradley (Argus Filch) and Julie Christie (Madame Rosmerta) rather than the headliners. Not that it wouldn’t be awesome, just not as awesome as shaking hands with Rupert Grint (Ron) or asking Alan Rickman whether or not J.K. Rowling had told him the truth about Snape from the beginning.

Tickets go on sale July 31st and start at $369 per person.

What’s Better Than Comic Books or Harry Potter?

How about Harry Potter comics?

Super Artist Lucy Knisley has unveiled The Sumharry. Nine individual poster-style comics that feature scenes from each book (two for the last). They are absolutely amazing and right now Ms. Knisley is offering up these beauties for a limited time to print for FREE.
