It’s September 1, that wonderful day in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter when students would pack up, head to Platform 9 ¾ and encounter the Hogwarts Express, maybe for the first time. Fans at Universal Studios Orlando have been able to experience this sort of magic for a while, but now the theme park has kicked off a new vacation package with a great Harry Potter tie-in.
Recently, we learned Universal Studios Orlando’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter would be relaunching a previous Potter vacation package, but this time with a few additions. These keepsake additions include a photo opp in the park, early admission to the parks, a breakfast at The Leaky Cauldron and a special box filled with stuff, and that’s where the tie-in to Harry Potter comes in.
Prior to attending Hogwarts, all brand new witches and wizards get a special welcome letter, just like Harry Potter did in his cupboard under the stairs, so long ago. Those who decide to head to Universal Studios via this new themed vacation package will also get a welcome letter in the mail, like Harry Potter, although it sadly will not be delivered by owl post.
