Videos from Universal’s secret grand opening of Harry Potter world

Okay, it wasn’t secret — everyone knew about it but the public wasn’t invited.

And it’s really not “Harry Potter world” but rather The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

And it was only the first of two grand openings. You can watch the second grand opening (for the public) at 9:00 AM Eastern Time on Friday, June 18 here. Is that Website really only devoted to this Harry Potter business? Seems a waste, especially since they don’t stream an archive of the event afterward.

Disney’s Inside The Magic Website posted these three videos from tonight’s event, and since they are free for embedding I’m embedding them here.
