Suppose someone from "Harry's world" married a Muggle, and they want to escort their child. Can the Muggle parent get through to the Hogwarts platform?

Sure, absolutely.

Here's Lily's parents on platform nine and three-quarters.

And the scene refomed. Harry looked around: he was on platform nine and three-quarters, and Snape stood beside him, slightly hunched, next to a thin, sallow-faced, sour-looking woman who greatly resembled him. Snape was staring at a family of four a short distance away. The two girls stood a little apart from their parents. Lily seemed to be pleading with her sister; Harry moved closer to listen.

...

Lily glanced towards her parents, who were looking around the platform with an air of wholehearted enjoyment, drinking in the scene.

    @maawneli No, but the films are nonsense ;-) – Rand al'Thor Sep 17 '16 at 23:51

    @maawneli No, but in the books this is the scene where Petunia first calls Lily a freak (I didn't include it because it's not really relevant), whereas in the movie she calls Lily a freak when Lily is playing with the flower, so that bit kind of makes it into the movie – Au101 Sep 18 '16 at 0:41
  • I'd be interested to know how - just sort of dragged through the barrier like Kitty Pryde? – ThruGog Sep 18 '16 at 7:45
