Universal before Celebration of Harry Potter

My DD8 and I are planning a 5-day trip to Orlando, 4 days at WDW and 1 to hit all of the HP stuff at Universal. Celebration of HP will be on during a trip, but my instinct is to hit the parks before that weekend, since I don’t think she’ll care to sit through panel discussions, etc. Will we miss anything at Hogsmeade and DA because the staff will be focused on prepping for the upcoming celebration? Or will crowds be lower?

Nope, the parks will operate as usual and crowds should be ok.
