Many thanks to Attractions Magazine for letting us know a new round of images and aerial tour of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park are now online.  The video shows us further shots of the Hogwarts Castle and adjoining forest area, as well as more of the Hogsmeade shops and streets.  The images from within the park itself show again the continued application of details to the structures as construction continues.  In this new set of images, we can see what appears to be the possible entrance to the Owlery, construction on the wizarding buildings, the curious spotlight tower, and much more.  The full set can be starting here on page 48 of our Wizarding World Construction Set in our Image Galleries.


Thanks for mailing!

I’m almost certain that the “spotlight” in the tower will be the clock/astronomy tower seen in the films — looks just like it!

And oh, those crooked chimneys and roofs are so wonderfully quirky and whimsical. Between those and the snow, in Florida!, it’s going to be a grinfest!

DISAPPOINTING I get the feeling it will be too condensed … sandwiched between other attractions. I get the impression that I could walk through it in less than an hour … as if it were too small. I would have to be by myself to enjoy it casually and fully, to make it a day long visit. The lines might be ridiculous at first. Probably a lot more of looking, than hands on … for display only. Do you get the sense that Hogwarts is not as gigantic as Rowling would have you believe? I am guessing it would be comparable to Holy Hill, Hubertus, WI.
Money is tight and my kids are too young, so it might be a couple of years before I can make the trip. While it will be there for years, it may have some worn paths when I can finally get down there to enjoy it. The video has likely dampened my spirits, when I thought I might someday get that “take it all in” sensation.

I think they will have to build a second park. I would imagine a forbidden forest to more like an actual game farm as the one in Poynette, WI. The actual size would likely be that of a small college … Edgewood in Madison, WI.
I have been to Orlando three times. Once in ’92 when they still had boot camp there. Twice I went to the Coronado Springs Resort for a poetry Convention 2001 and 2005. My time was limited, and I stayed on the cheap. I would probably need two-three weeks vacation and about $5,000 to really enjoy Orlando.
