Construction watch continues on the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park attraction with new photos and video. First thanks to David who let us know about this new video of the construction work being done in Orlando, Florida, now clearly showing the towers and facade of the giant Hogwarts castle being built. You can also see his photos here from OrlandoUnited (also here in our galleries) as well as these additional photos including more of the snowy walls of Hogsmeade Village courtesy of Brianorndorf.com. Be sure to check out our extensive collection of photos and more on the theme park here in our Image Galleries. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Theme Park is set to open Spring, 2010.

Thanks so much David and Brian!

We already have a trip to Florida booked for the end of April next year. I am keeping all fingers and toes crossed that it’ll be open by then.

Hey everyone!
I’ve made a group to petition Warner Brothers to keep the Ron/Hermione kiss out of the trailer so that we can see it for the first time on release day. If you agree here’s the link to join:
http://www.the-leaky-cauldron.org/myleaky/groups/7002
Also here is a video:

And the online petition, if you’d like to sign here’s the link:

Thanks, have a great day!

Harry and Ron grinned at each other. They knew Hermione would rather eat bubotuber pus than miss such an important lesson.
