    They will announce that soon enough. I am just so excited for Universal to start doing these events! Funny how they announced this right after Disney announced that it was canceling ESPN: The Weekends

    Re: Harry Potter Fan EVENT Nov 11 - 13 with MOVIE STARS at Islands of Adventure

    I happen to be already going on a mini vacation to the wizarding world that Nov. 11th weekend. So as a huge harry potter fan, I OBVIOUSLY want to attend this. However, you must purchase an entire vacation package which is a 4 night stay. I'll be there only 2 nights so I'm out. Then it's the $369 for the basic "celebration package", or $699 (yes, that's $330 MORE) for the "premier package" which includes a night gala in the wizarding world & a breakfast at the three broomsticks. I definitely find it to be overpriced but as a harry potter fan I still secretly want to do this! But I, as many other fans, also have to account for other members in their vacation party who are not as big of HP fans and will not be so willing to pay a premium to attend events that they have no interest in.

    Hopefully others will be with me, in either they can't or don't want to buy an entire 4 night vacation package just to be able to meet & greet (who knows who) HP cast & crew; leading to Mr. Universal selling more individualized tickets per different events. That is when I will seriously consider attending. But as of now, I will have to sadly be in the wizarding world watching & hearing of the cool events going on around me...so close yet so far.

    Will the park be open to the general public that weekend? Or will only people who buy the special package be allowed to enter the park/wizzarding world?

    yes, the park and wizarding world is still open that weekend. tickets to the parks are included in the vacation packages. The day events are in park Q&A sessions but I imagine those will be indoors or hidden somewhere away from regular park-goers (bc then why would i buy a package if i can stand a bit further but still see 'the stars'). The wizarding world nighttime gala is sunday evening, so it's probably after hours since the park closes at 7pm that night.
