Harry potter convention

I was just wondering if anyone was at IOA last year whilst the Harry Potter convention was on? Getting a bit worried that the place while be packed as it is on this year whilst we go to Florida. Got anyone tell me how busy it was.

Thanks

Here is some info about it:


Ascendio and their Night of a Thousand Wizards are returning to Universal Orlando Resort this July 12 through 15, 2012. Ascendio, dubbed as Infinitus in 2010,#is a Harry Potter conference (or convention), and features presentations, music, meet-ups and social events. Their Night of a Thousand Wizards 2 is an exclusive after-hours event at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Night of a Thousand Wizards 2 will take place at 8 p.m. on Thursday, July 12 in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and will run until 1 a.m. Friday morning. There will be a DJ spinning music, lashings of Butterbeer, podcast recordings and more. Fans will also be able to stroll through Hogsmeade in full costume (a privilege extended exclusively to the event) and have no waits through the queue for Forbidden Journey, Dragon Challenge and Hippogriff.

Ascendio 2012 will take place at the Lowes Portofino Bay Hotel. In addition to the feature presentations, roundtables, special guests and more, there will be a vendor room open all four days featuring, of course, Potter related clothing, merchandise and memorabilia.

2008 we first visited as a family of 4, I fell in love and our return was booked for 2010 and then 2017.
A lot had changed but 4 soon become 2 with the boys not wanting to leave their girlfriends so a solo trip for the both of us with a mix up and trip to Orlando and Miami was booked for 2018. Still not had enough, and missing the magic this year we booked for August 2020!
