It is cool, but maybe there should be a small hut where you walk in, and place a Hat on your head, and it would be like a virtual reality thing, and when you press a button, you see the Hat, and it says what house you are in. Maybe that can be connected to a shop. Or something like that for the Hat Choosing.Avatar ImageLilly-Angel1 says: Also, I wonder how far in we are going to go in the Hogwarts Castle.... I HOPE ITS NOT A DISSAPINTMENT!!Avatar Imageariana_dumbledore says: I love the Sorting Hat umbrella! =)Avatar Imagelevi-OH-sa not levio-SA says: wow!!!Avatar ImageDean O. says: Hey! Orlando Attractions is run by my podcast pal Ricky Brigante! He's the genius behind Inside the Magic, to which I occasionally contribute under the brilliant pseudonym "That Anonymous Guy." I'd subscribe to OA, but, well, I haven't been to Orlando in 20 years, so it would be a little pointless.Avatar Imagelevi-OH-sa not levio-SA says: wow!!!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Real cool... Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: The sorting hat umbrella is wacky!
