We have for you tonight a number of updates regarding the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park currently under construction at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida.  First, the Orlando Sentinel has a number of new images of the construction still underway via this link.  Secondly, additional images from the theme park via a report on Orlando Park News have been uploaded to our Image Galleries right here.

Finally, reports have been surfacing online regarding a revised ticking structure put in place at the Universal Park.  The Orlando Sentinel reports that the new ticking structure introduced Monday eliminates  "a long-running promotional offer for weeklong passes and raising the price of standard two-day tickets. But it also introduced new three- and four-day ticket options."  While we have not received word on firm opening dates or park plans, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is slated to open in the spring.

Thanks to all those who mailed!

I can’t wait! too bad it’s so far away, though. I’d be happy to go over there myself, but that also involves saving up money..

Just an FYI. if you purchased tickets or bought one of the gift cards at a supermarket for the 2 park 7 day unlimited before the price increase itll still be honored at the gate without any other fees or differences. just got off the phone with guest services at universal orlando. however, if anyone wants to have anything they bought at the gift stores (which im sure we will be buying loads) shipped to there houses, the guy told me they do NOT offer that and you will have to either have to pack the items or find a UPS or postal store to mail them. sucks i know.
