Last night was the celebrity preview for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and J. K. Rowling, as well as many Potter actors, attended the event. We have many pictures in our Image Galleries of Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley), Michael Gambon (Professor Dumbledore), Matt Lewis (Neville Longbottom), Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley), Warwick Davis (Flitwick), and J. K. Rowling at the event.

Thanks to InsidetheMagic we have videos from the celebrity preview. So if you missed the live feed last night, or want to relive it the videos can be found below or you can go here and here and here. The videos show Warwick Davis conducting the Frog Choir, John Williams conducting the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Potter cast lighting up the Hogwarts castle.

We also have pictures in our Image Galleries from the press conference that took place at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter earlier today.

Finally, tomorrow, at 8 pm EST, the TV Guide Channel will air clips from the Grand Opening, including an interview with Dan Radcliffe.

Those videos were amazing! John Williams and the Orlando Symphony were superb, and Warwick D. and The "Hogwarts Frog Choir were even better! The lumos maximus was pretty neat to set off the fireworks too. Thanks so much, Leaky, for showing these videos to those of us who could not get there!!!

Sigh! Amazing. Also, I thought JK Rowling was going to be there too? Is there video of her somewhere?
