Hollywood Magic! Stars Flock to the New Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Celebrities got giddy at Universal Studios Hollywood during opening week.

Opening day for Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood is finally here!

And it turns out stars were just like us... waiting in caped anticipation of the grand opening of the amusement park. But unlike us muggles, the celebs got to stroll like the VIPs they are through preview days for the captivating new site. Tom Felton and Evanna Lynch of the movie series fame showed up, as did Vanessa Hudgens, director Steven Spielberg, and a whole handful of other enchanted stars who seemed like they had a blast as far as we can tell on social media.

More celebrities at our #WizardingWorldHollywood premiere tonight!

Thank goodness she wasn't wearing an invisible cape — Mindy Kaling was totally Slytherin' on the red carpet and enjoyed some butterbeer while fancying herself at Honeydukes.

Darren Criss was wagging his tongue over all the fun. If Harry Potter were turned into a musical, we'd give him two thumbs up, too!

Harry Freakin Potter is fully expecto-ing a totally awesome time here! @unistudios #wizardingworldhollywood

Looks like Mario Lopez's "house" includes this crew of Ed O'Neill and Billy Bob Thornton, a cue to never grow up and always take selfies. 

My crew... #EdOneill #BillyBobThorton
