Thanks to Universal Orlando Resort, there is news of a new website for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter now online featuring a number of new interactive features.  Included among these features are:
  • A first-person perspective, photo-realistic video of Hogsmeade and Hogwarts castle.
  • The Wizarding World News, which will provide guests with information about The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
  • Visuals and details about the various shops, attractions and the eating establishment in the land.
  • Owl Post e-cards for friends and family.
As part of this update, expanded descriptions and new looks at the various elements of the Harry Potter park are also online.  This includes descriptions of Honeydukes, Dervish and Bangs, Ollivanders, Zonko's, the Owl Post, and the Three Broomsticks.  A stunning flying tour of the entire attraction has also been added to the site, which walks you through the shops of Hogsmeade and through the gates to the Hogwarts Castle.  

Update:  We now have video of the new flight through the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park mentioned above available right here for your viewing pleasure.

The website is set to be continually updated with even more fun features and news in the coming months.
