    So I was just reading through my UOAP Newsletter and on the last page it has a schedule of upcoming events and listed for September is an event called Back to Hogwarts. I had a look around online and couldn’t find any information about the event so is it new for this year?

    Here’s the official description:
    “Don your robes, grab your wands, and prepare to join in on the start of the school year at Hogwarts with fan activities and magical experiences at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Join the UOAP Facebook group at you UOAPFB.com to be the first to get event details. Select dates in September.”

    Sept 1st is the day in the books the Hogwarts Express leaves for Hogwarts. When Hogsmeade opened an unofficial group would meet yearly at Hogsmeade and when Diagon opened they started in Diagon, took the 11am train, then went to Hogwarts.

    I guess they’re making it an official event now?

    I would say this would be a great time to announce the new coaster...but I doubt they are going that route

    It's already announced tho. An event to give ride details and a name would be what I would expect at some point and for it to be vloggers/bloggers only.

    I’m not being difficult, I’m being practical. I just don’t see it likely Universal announces anything at this.

    No, it’s an AP event. Bloggers typically end up making up most of the people at these events yes, but what I mean by what I said is an invitation only event, likely held in Soundstage 33.
