New photos are online today, showing walls to be used for Hogwarts Castle and more at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park attraction under construction in Orlando, Florida. Via this forum, you can see large photos of the elaborate glass windows, spires and walls that will be part of the Great Hall of Hogwarts. Also available are photos of the snow covered buildings and walls that will be part of Hogsmeade Village at the theme park being built at Universal Orlando. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is due to open sometime early 2010.

Thanks to UHP for the heads up!

Avatar Imageryuzastar says: those look amazing, i cant wait to go next year! it's so exciting..Avatar ImagePrisoner Of Azkaban says: Awesome stuff! Can't wait to go hereAvatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: I am amazed beyond all comprehension. Seeing these sets actually come to life, to actually imagine that these locations will now be tangible for us, is something that my mind still struggles to grasp fully.Avatar Image.full.blood.prince. says: I'm so glad that the people behind it are taking the subject of detail in the construction seriously. Up until I saw these pictures, I didn't know (but then again I guess no one else did, either) how detailed the buildings would be compared to, let's say, the movies. But it's nice to know that we'll most definitely feel as if we're a part of the Harry Potter world when it opens. I'm so excited!Avatar ImageX-Lillie-Lovegood-X says: SQUEEE!!!!!!!!!! Some one buy a helicopter and take some photos please I will love you if you do that!!! Avatar ImageCool Grandma2 says: I'm excited too. I definately plan on going after it opens.

Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: OH my goshhhh!Avatar ImageHorcruxalej says: i cant wait it should be awesome..Avatar Imagelilyjames says: My god why does florida have to be so far away...and why do i have to have no way of gettig there in the year 2010 its just ridiculous!Avatar Imagekbicprez says: WOW. That's really impressive!Avatar ImageWingardium Leviosa says: Wow, it looks amazing! I am so excited for this!Avatar ImageRaveKatie says: YAY! My brothers and I are so planning on going during winter break next year :DAvatar ImageRaveKatie says: YAY! My brothers and I are so planning on going during winter break next year :D The pictures look so cool, but how big will it be?? Avatar ImageLinnyish says: Ooh I can't wait to see it all in place.Avatar Imageminitontis says: but... don't you see? the walls are pretty small... Hogwarts will be like a huge "miniature". I mean that the castle indoor locations we'll be able to visit won't be inside this huge miniture buecause they just don't fit. We can see clearle that the real walls should be much higher than any of Hogsmeade buildings or the metal store. Anyway it will be the hugest miniature i've ever seen and it's sooo detailed!!Avatar ImageJrae says: I think we will be viewing Hogwarts from a distance, so it is not built to scale - movie magic! Then an indoor ride will be inside the structure. Just guessing......Avatar Imagedragon_of destiny says: like OMG like OMG i cant wait like OMG woo hooo!!!! like OMGAvatar ImageA Chocolate Frog says: Wow, it looks incredible!! I cannot wait!! Avatar Image.full.blood.prince. says: I'm so glad that the people behind it are taking the subject of detail in the construction seriously. Up until I saw these pictures, I didn't know (but then again I guess no one else did, either) how detailed the buildings would be compared to, let's say, the movies. But it's nice to know that we'll most definitely feel as if we're a part of the Harry Potter world when it opens. I'm so excited!Avatar ImageThorgalson says: I find it funny that they've chosen to make the whole thing covered in snow, as if Hogwarts only existed in winter or something like that. It's beautiful, still. What I'm not sure I like is how some of the Great Hall wall/windows seem to be placed just in front of a windowless steel building, like they're obivously fake and if we ever get inside we won't actually see outside. Maybe I'm wrong, maybe there will be windows, but now it just seems weird. Avatar Imagepotterrock says: The photos are brilliant *o* ... I want to go x3:DAvatar Imagekingdom says: wow, it's looking really awesome!!Avatar ImageHP_Flower says: Everything looks awesome! Can't wait for it to open!Avatar ImageMary11_hplvr4l says: ha I agree..I hope the building behing it is only a temp...it takes some of the awe away...but I gasped first time I the pics...I'M SO EXCITED!!!!! :DDAvatar ImageJohn-Robert says: stunning!! i love the hogsmede snowy theme. that's all we see it as in the movie right? great! can't wait to see whats next!Avatar ImageTheGoldenSeeker says: OMG!!!!

I'm trying to get my brother into the books so my parents will be more convinced!Avatar ImageDolemite says: Very niceAvatar Imagelilyjames says: My god why does florida have to be so far away...and why do i have to have no way of getting there in the year 2010 its just ridiculous!Avatar ImageHeavenly_Horcrux says: It looks amazing!Avatar ImagePompleMoose says: That looks so amazingly awesome :DAvatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: Awesome Avatar ImageR-for-H says: I love the photos they are amazing Avatar Imagecghambright says: OMG!!!

What I really dont get is why they made it look like there was snow. That really bugged me. Yeah I get you dont get much snow in Florida but I mean what ever. so? I hope they put forest and stuff around it so you cant really see the outside world, because that would totally ruin the whole affect. Avatar Imagesaffran says: Yess!Avatar Imageoldenoughtoknowbetter says: Looking GOOOOD!!! Avatar Imagepixi_jo says: Oh, no... I don't like it. I mean I love all the detail on the buildings, but I don't want winter all summer long.
