As part of the launch for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Warner Brothers Consumer Products is being featured in Licensing Biz, where WB will be providing them with new insights and plans for the next four years. According to the website, as part of "global scale events" due over the next four years, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is set to open in Spring, 2010. This matches many earlier reports we've seen here on TLC. Over the past few weeks too weve heard more about the theme park, most recently about a ride being built inside the giant castle of Hogwarts and from Emma Watson who said last week that she filmed a video to be shown to guests as part of an interactive ride. A recap on all of the latest can be found in the Telegraph today, with recent construction photos of the park being built in Orlando, Florida seen here courtesy of fan Brian Dorf.

Also WB told Licensing Biz that the DVD for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is due "Q4 2009" putting it in the holiday/December release time frame we reported on previously. We will update with any new information that might be released on this over the next few days.

It’s good to have the timeframe narrowed down. Now I just have to hope I will be able to afford to go in 2010 and again for LeakyCon 2011. :)

Oh dear. I’m going in February for my birthday and that certainly isn’t spring! I’m hoping they speed up a bit!

I live in Florida, and Universal is ALWAYS soo busy, which is expected. I really really want to go to this by the time it comes out, but man, I’m worried about it being worse than it normally is. I don’t wanna get trampled by crazy fans! But then again, I might be one of ’em x3
