Platform 9 3/4 Shop Now Online, More Info on the WWOHP Convention in January

UK fans who live outside of London can now benefit from the new online Platform 9 3/4 Shop. The real life shop is situated in Kings Cross station, but people from other parts of the UK can now purchase the merchandise in the shop. This is good news because shipping from the U.S. from Warner Bros' online shop costs a fair amount. The shop can be accessed here.
Yet if you do not live in the UK, do not fear, because a wider selection of delivery locations is coming in early 2014. Watch. This. Space.

In other Potter news,  it was previously revealed that a special 'Celebration of Harry Potter' convention was to be held in January at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter Theme Park in Orlando, Florida. A few more details have emerged including:
Panel discussions that cannot be missed with MinaLima - creators of the graphics seen in the movies

-- Pottermore – an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at - the free interactive website from J.K. Rowling (Saturday & Sunday)

-- Plus, guests can explore the one-of-a-kind Harry Potter Expo with interactive activities for fans including a vignette of movie props from Harry Potter: The Exhibition and The Sorting Hat™ experience.
It is also mentioned that "various actors will be attendance" although there is no information on who yet. Please also note that packages sold out in minutes when it was first announced during the summer, but Snitchseeker have said:
those who are willing to go to the park with regular tickets will get a sampling of some of the celebration's events.
