It’s been in the works for years.  Children and adult fans of the most famous wizard in the world have been anticipating the opening of the magical realm on earth.  Yes indeedy people, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is nearing it’s Grand Opening, rumored to be around Memorial Day.

The park is an extension of Universal Studios, and includes Hogsmeade, the famous village from the series, as well as Hogwarts Castle and even a few rides.

Hogsmeade Village will host shopping and dining, and is true to its description in the books. Here you can sip on pumpkin juice or enjoy a pint of butterbeer just like Harry and his friends.  After lunch you can even grab new Quidditch equipment or a Rememberall!

As for rides, the old Flying Unicorn family coaster becomes Flight of the Hippogriff. The twin Dueling Dragons coaster is being repainted and re-themed into Dragon Challenge.

There is even a rumor that one company has been contracted to build mounds of real snow that won’t melt in the Florida heat!

Many rumors are surrounding this park, but one thing is for sure, it looks like a bundle of wizarding fun!
