As Harry and Ron learned the hard way during their second year, The Hogwarts Express leaves London's King's Cross Station from Platform 9 ¾ on September 1 at 11:30 AM.

And if you're not on the train by then, you're going to be left behind.


As Potterheads descended on King's Cross to celebrate the new year at Britain's most famous magic school, they were greeted by two surprise guests:

Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law)!

The train station hinted at magic to come before 11 AM arrived.

Some familiar music was being played over the train station's speakers...

Then a couple of very welcome faces arrived!


The crowd was so busy watching Law and Redmayne that they almost missed the train!



King's Cross turned into a mini-Comic Con for the day...

...which was especially strange for passengers who didn't know the significance of September 1.


Numerous charms were in place to stop muggles from noticing the upcoming departure.


Fans were jumping for joy and spreading their excitement on Twitter!




Now that the students are all back at Hogwarts, another year of magic can begin!

Businesses have to turn a profit to be able to stay operational. We get it. A consumer is paying more than it costs to make the product to purchase the product. The upside of accepting this fact should be we're being provided a service and experience we couldn't possibly get on our own. However, there are those products that are overcharged, especially compared to the development costs, that are charged a high price for what feels like no reason outside of making a ridiculous amount of money.
