Updates tonight regarding the ongoing progress for the future site of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park attraction being build at Universal Orlando, Florida. IOACentral.com has posted photos of new signs on the construction barriers at the park, which feature “two owls around Hogwarts castle, and a symbol representing Hogsmeade.” You can see these new photos via this link.

At last word, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter was scheduled for a December 2009 opening.

Thanks so to David and IOACentral!

Wow…I really, really, really hope they stick to schedule…

See, I turn 21 in December 2009, and since Harry Potter’s always been a huge part of my life, I would really like to spend my birthday in HP World!

Emma’s going to be busy in December, with promotion for “The Tale of Despereaux” following promotion for HBP, and then the theme park opening.

I live in Orlando and I will be at the opening. I just wish it could open sooner, so I can leave this state. But I must stay tell the opening of Harry Potter at Universal.

There is so much castle type construction there already. I wonder if they are planning to recycle any of it or are they going to start completely fresh for the HP build out?

Avatar Image says:

Sorry, I splinched myself. I went and looked at something else on the site and came back here and my post was sitting here unposted and the time bar wasn’t moving. But now there are two posts.

My apologies

Cindy, I am with you. I live over in the Tampa Bay area and I want out of this state as soon as possible but there is that whole Florida resident ticket price thing and I can be there in an hour so I put my move on hold just for HP. :)

Avatar Image says:

I moved back to Florida to be near my family, and it turns out that my new job is right near Universal. Yay!

more news: A stone bridge has been built to connect the Hogwarts grounds to the Three Broomsticks in Hogsmeade. An extremely long take along the bridge has been shot for a sequence that (obviously) features Hogsmeade. Only David Yates, Bruno Delbonnel and other crew were present during the filming (that is, no cast members were present). If left in unedited, this take will easily outstrip Alfonso Cuaron’s well-received long takes in Children of Men. (this was “filler transition material” being shot. the length of the take was intentional)

a deluge of HBP info may be expected in 10 days time

I”m a 60 year old Potter lover who just returned from Florida. While there I took 4 pictures of the ongoing construction left of the dueling dragons as you are facing the entrance to DD.

Could someone e me, and tell me where to upload them?
