The Castle Comes Together at Wizarding World of Harry Potter, plus Harry Potter Theme Park Ornament News

A great update today on progress at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter Theme Park attraction being built at Universal Orlando. Thanks as always to Brian we can see some great new photos of Hogwarts Castle that is really coming together at the park, with much more of the huge walls in place along side the towers and turrets. There are even photos of large glass windows being put into place as well as photos of Hogsmeade area really taking shape, plus a few off-site construction of large walls. Finally, be sure to check out a magical Harry Potter Christmas ornament that is now being sold at the park, depicting a robed wizard holding a wand and the year 2010 written on the item. UPDATE: Thanks to Felipe for emailing that Orlando United also has many similar and good photos of these towers and turrets, as seen here in our galleries.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park attraction is due to open next spring. Thanks much Brian!
