Wizarding World of Harry Potter Update

Just watched the DVD of “Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince” and the special preview of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. The movie was great, the preview was a bit disappointing. Let’s just say that if you’ve been paying attention at all, you know three times as much as what they said in the DVD preview.

For a real preview you need to get to Orlando United and check out the most recent set of photos from the construction. A long way to go still. But they have set a hard date of June 2010 to open at least some of the rides. Those will most likely be Dragon’s Challenge and Flight of the Hippogriff. The two rides that were just new queue overlays over existing attractions.

PS, even more photos over here. You can really see the forced perspective in action for Hogwarts.
