Avatar ImageShakur says: The park is really starting to take shape. I can't wait to visit it one day (hopefully)!Avatar Imagehannah abbot says: i can't wait to go!!! it will be amazing!!Avatar Imagedumbleydore18 says: I was running around my house ecstatically and lost for words when the fans found out Hogwarts was going to be built. I am even more ecstatic (more like bawling my eyes out with joy) that they are building Hagrid's Hut. Hagrid is my favorite character. I mean just to go up to something that is in the Harry Potter books and touch it and walk around inside of it. I am flabbergasted, utterly flabbergasted. This will be the closest thing to going to Hogwarts. I am greatful and honored to be a part of this fandom and be the first HP generation to experience this.

Even if we can't go into Hagrid's Hut (which is a shame because it would be so cool) it'll be great to see it from the outside! And Hogwarts is really coming along! I don't know why the Blogger says they're rushing because Spring Break crowds will be coming soon because I thought the HP part didn't open until 2010, unless they just want something impressive for people to look at when they go past.Avatar Imagespiritbound says: Woooop love all the news to do with this, can't wait to go :D:D Definatly conquering my fear of flights for this!Avatar Imagespicefan1978 says: Oh I hope I'll be able to visit at some point!!!Avatar Imagesqueakerteacher says: My fiance and I are both excited to go one day we are actually talking about going for one of our anniversaries before we have kids. :smile: Avatar Imagefelixfelicis11 says: Ah!

Avatar ImageZoeyLuna says: Ooh, so I see that Hogwarts has the early beginnings of an air conditioning system... THANK. GOD. ;xAvatar Imageemmy. says: I wish I lived nearby. Then I'd go on the opening day- who knows Jo might be there!!Avatar ImageBellamont says: I say if we will be in Florida for Leaky Con 2011, Melissa must do two things. 1, all con members go to the theme park for 1 day and 2, Melissa must ask JK Rowling if she would come with us to enjoy the park. ^^ Seriously, it would be epic to go there with Jo and her and Melissa are totally book buddies. *pulls off best cute face* If you start now Melissa, Jo's schedual should be open. Anywho, Im really excited about this park and cant wait to be sweating in my HP costume while there dressed up. ^^ btw...first 100 points! ^^"Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: Yay! So excited for the park! :)Avatar Imagecheekysnake09 says: The first thing up is ALWAYS Hagrid's Hut. lolAvatar Imagearkapain says: Everyone loves Hagrid's Hut production! Where's the jacuzzi?Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: It looks like it is shaping up to be something fantastic. I cannot wait to visit the park in person.Avatar Imagealbeitgurggish says: Exciting! I really want to go! Avatar ImageMiss Smarticle says: I think visiting the park may actually be bad for my health, the pure joy and excitment might be too much for my heart to handle!! Ahh, I can't wait!Avatar ImageProfKnight says: I cant wait to go and I hope its as magical as the books and movies. Avatar ImageProfKnight says: I cant wait to go and I hope its as magical as the books and movies. Avatar Imagebadger666 says: Cool!Avatar Imagehp29 says: It's looking really good! I can't wait to visit!Avatar ImageJohnB says: HEY, I did not see Hagrid there :( Oh well. still looks good. I wonder if they will have some rockcakes inside one of the windows lolAvatar ImageLauraKeaton says: It looks great. I can't wait till the park opens.Avatar Imagemhaeyemhaeye says: I can't wait for this! :DAvatar Imagesnapealicious says: I can't wait to go one day.Avatar ImageGertie Keddle says: Crikey I am excited...between Disney World and this Florida is beginning to look like heaven.

It is going to be sooo cool!Avatar ImageLucia Meadows says: I'm glad they are including Hagrid's hut. It wouldn't be Harry Potter's world without hut building coverage. ;)Avatar ImageBradyboy says: It would be cool if you could visit the pumpkin patch and cook rock cakes... Avatar Imagenoe_lover_42 says: OMG i cant wait for infinitus!!!Avatar ImageJTEL99 says: I don't know why they want to make Hagrid's Hut just a prop. It wouldn't take much work to fix up the inside you wouldn't think. It would be neat to compare yourself to the size of his furniture, cups and what not.Avatar ImageiLoveDolores says: OMG i can't wait for infinitus next year. the park is going to be amazing!! can't wait to wear my robes in public =DAvatar Imageowl-mail says: it's looking great so farAvatar Imagemugglemom4 says: I wish we could go in it. Avatar Imagewizardinventor says: It looks awesme, too bad that it is just going to be a storage structure and that we can not go it. This theme park is going to be awesome if they are putting that much detail into all of the park even when visitors don't come into it or it is one of the rides. I always worried about them not making it true and fully immersive, but these cast doubt upon my worries. Avatar ImageHagrid 713 says: Excellent!!Avatar Imagelumosshimmy says: Oh I'm so happy they didn't build the "stupid version" of Hagrid's Hut - I was a little worried that it would look a little dumbed down and theme-parky (especially since we can't go in). But it looks like the real thing!Avatar ImageGobbledygook says: lol. I love that we're getting hagrid's hut construction pics. Do you think there will be a hot tub in it this time? lolAvatar ImageeiVega says: I think it is too funny that we're getting a glimpse of Hagrid's Hut! It wouldn't be a proper HP production without it. :)Avatar ImageBeAchL0veEr05 says: Oh my gosh I cannot wait to go! I did not know there would be Hogwarts (although it seems pretty obvious now that I look at at), so I am very glad! Hagrid's hut=Ahmazzinng!!!Avatar Imageraven_puff says: I cant wait to go to that theme park!!Avatar ImageGarden State Geek says: Well, at least they're making progress. Avatar ImageFlourishandBlotts says: Hagrid's Hut hahaha! Oh, man. Good times with pottercast.Avatar Imagecleber says: i'd better start saving right now! Avatar Imageellamia says: i am so excited that my husband will take me there when it opens (we dont have kids so i'll just pretend that my kid is in the bathroom).Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: OMG looks so good. Maybe one day I'll be able to go. It's the closest thing I'll ever get to actually going to Hogwarts etc . . . xxAvatar Imagemewthree says: wish i could come and live there, or even work on the site.Avatar Imagelisajean65 says: I am so excited about this! I have got to find some way to get there when it opens!
