There are some fantastic new photos online today from the ongoing construction at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park in Orlando, Florida. Thanks to Brian who let us know about these photos which show more of the mammoth walls of Hogwarts Castle, as well as a new side entrance archway to the castle, and more of the entrance way into the main Harry Potter portion of Universal Studios. Also of interest are new close up photos of work being done separately from the main park, these showing new details of the snow being applied to the roofs of buildings of Hogsmeade as well as some of the spires for the various buildings. As we have reported previously, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park is due to open early next year.

Thanks so much Brian!

Yay! It is encouraging to see progress, and maybe, just maybe the Harry Potter section of Island Of Adventure will actually open next spring. Unfortunately, Universal has a history of delaying their openings, or things breaking down. But this will get lots of press, so I’m sure they will do their best to be ready on time.

"Detention, Weasley," Snape said silkily, his face very close to Ron's. "And if I ever hear you criticize the way I teach a class again, you will be very sorry indeed."
