Updates for Harry Potter Conference “Infinitus”
By Hanako M. Ricks
HollywoodNews.com: Infinitus: A Harry Potter Conference is officially only 12 days away, and there have been lots of updates for attendees.
Probably the most exciting update for attendees refers to the Costuming Policy that Universal Orlando has in place for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. The statement from Universal is as follows:
“It has been decided that leniency with our costume policy will be extended specifically for our Infinitus Night of a Thousand Wizards event. Guests will be allowed to wear their costumes in the parks, beginning at 2pm, on the date of their event – July 16th.
So what does this mean for attendees? It means that on July 16, from 2pm until the “Night of a Thousand Wizards” after-hours event in the park, Infinitus attendees only will be allowed to wear costumes in the park – along specific guidelines – as long as they provide proof that they are attending the conference (in other words, registration badges must be prominently displayed at all times within the park).
- Additional restrictions and guidelines include the following:
- No masks, veils, long trains or live animals will be allowed.
- Universal Orlando will have sole discretion to make a decision on whether a costume is appropriate and will be allowed to ask guests to make costume adjustments or to escort guests out of the park.
- At no time may the costumed guest give the impression that they are a Universal Orlando employee.
- Note that some costumes may not be permitted on certain attractions.
- Note that wands will not fit inside lockers.
I will be attending Infinitus the whole weekend, presenting a panel on Saturday (“Potterholics Non-Anonymous”) and hosting a “Weasley Is Our King” meetup on Sunday. I will keep you posted with reports and photo updates from the conference here on Hollywood News, and you can also follow me for all Infinitus (and Harry Potter) updates on Twitter at www.twitter.com/hmrpotter.
Infinitus takes place July 15-18 in Orlando, FL and additional details can be found on the Infinitus webpage at this link.
