Last month, many details on the upcoming Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park attraction being built in Florida were confirmed at a press event, including word that indeed fans would see the Hogwarts Express. The train has now arrived in Orlando, which you can see in this photo right here. As revealed in this high res map and in the video (also here in our galleries) released last month by Universal Orlando, the train will be one of many very cool items from the world of Harry Potter contained at the park. There are new construction photos courtesy of OrlandoUnited, including those of the giant Hogwarts castle (look at all the glass for the windows) and other buildings really beginning to take shape, notably this which might be Ollivanders or Honeydukes. UPDATE: Thanks to BrianDorf who owled us  with some great new photos, including many close ups of the train at the park.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is set to open at Universal Orlando sometime in the Spring of 2010. Thanks Felipe!

Awesome! Did they ship the actual Hogwarts Express train over to Florida then, or is that just a copy?
