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!

With every new photo that comes in I grow increasingly excited for the final product! I cannot wait – and cannot even imagine what it will feel like – to visit this location in person next year!
