Construction continues at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter Theme Park attraction underway in Orlando, Florida. Via this link you can now see new photos online today of work being done to the giant castle of Hogwarts, as well as the developing entrance way to the park.


Thanks so much to Brian for emailing! The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando is scheduled to open sometime next year.

How exciting!! I’m already going to the US this year, but it looks like I’ll have to book another trip for next year, just so I can go! And then another trip for the year after for LeakyCon 2011…I may as well just move to the States hehe

Just viewing these pictures gives chills to my bones in the realization that for the first time we Muggles will actually be able to immerse ourselves in the world of Harry Potter. The entire experience is one that will probably overwhelm us. I cannot wait to see the final product.

Wonder if they’ll ever make a HP park in Europe? Prob not as there only seems to be Disney that seems to do it outside of the US. :(

I might go there after I graduate high school. As my senior trip. Of course, I’m gonna have to get a job. But it’s always been my dream to go to Hogwarts. And now it’s being built for the public!
