Are you here via MuggleNet?
Ascendio <3s Mugglenet! Not only did we have a great time with them at Infinitus 2010, but we’re very excited about MuggleNet’s Eric Scull playing James Potter in the Friday night premiere of Mischief Managed, a new fan-written musical about the Marauders at Hogwarts! You can support the production via their Kickstarter page and learn more about the production at their website.

Do you love Potter inspired music? We’ve got the goods! Thursday is Wrock Day, and will feature such bands as The Whomping Willows, The Butterbeer Experience, Carpe Geekdom, Hawthorn & Holly and more! Lena Gabrielle is premiering her new musical Beetle the Bard, and Mischief Managed, about the Marauders, premieres Friday night! Saturday night is our musical extravaganza, Wands by Wands by Wizards. It’s a musical revue/talent show where Ascendio attendees, Wrockers and musical veterans will pay tribute to Harry Potter via song & dance!
Have we mentioned how AMAZING the hotel is? The Loews Portofino Bay Resort is styled to look like an Italian villa — and we think the actual con space is positively Malfoy Manor-esque! In this spirit, we’re throwing a To The Manor Ball Saturday night — and you can get into the ball with ANY registration type.
Hotel rooms are filling up quickly, and you can make your reservation at the Portofino Bay Resort – the Ascendio host hotel – even without registering for Ascendio. The standard room rate – which is good on any night between July 8 and July 19, 2012 – is $210 plus tax for up to four people in a room. We also have Deluxe rooms available for $265 plus tax for up to four people in a room. You can reserve a room for any dates, July 8 – 19, 2012, at their website, or by calling the hotel at 866-360-7395, or faxing 407-503-9258. If you call or fax the hotel, you must provide them with our code – HPEF-ASCENDIO – or you will not be able to make a reservation at our fantastic rates.
