PotterCast 219: Potter Park Preview
April 25, 2010, 04:53 PM
The 219th episode of PotterCast, our Harry Potter podcast
, is now online with a special extended preview of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter attraction at Universal Orlando Resorts. Our own Melissa Anelli was recently on site for a special preview, and can now dish on the many details about the forthcoming Potter theme park, set to have its grand opening on June 18. In this special report, Melissa takes us through the many elements of the park, its rides, and attractions, as well as its many shops, sights, and scrumptious food and drink options. From the Forbidden Journey ride to Butterbeer at the park, this preview will offer up an abundance of information about the expansive Harry Potter attraction. We also take questions from the Livestream audience and give a few tidbits of information about our upcoming conference, LeakyCon 2011, which will take place at Universal Orlando Resort in July of 2011.
As a reminder, the LeakyCon DVD, which will be available to pre-order soon, will also include all wizard rock performances from our conference. If you like live wizard rock, be sure to reserve your copy of the upcoming LeakyCon Live Album
of the wizard rock live shows at our LeakyCon 2009 conference.

I listened to this at work today. MULTIPLE TIMES. The thing about Harry, Ron and Hermione had me freaking out a little bit, in a very good way. I was grinning the whole time, my co-workers must have though I was insane but I don’t even care because OMG the Park is going to be AMAZING! Thank you so much Melissa for sharing your experience with us!
