Universal Orlando has released a short video featuring actors from the Harry Potter films along with author J. K. Rowling touring the many different aspects of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park.  Available to view via this link or below, the video features actors Dan Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Tom Felton,    and Harry Potter author J. K. Rowling making their way around such places as Hogsmeade, Zonkos, the Hog's Head Pub, and more.

The Harry Potter author is shown being taken around the streets of Hogsmeade, and looking to shop windows along avenue.  In regards to the park, J. K. Rowling notes that, "I'm used to walking onto film sets, where at a certain point everything dissolves into scaffolding and lighting, so, I suppose, the completeness of the vision is most breathtaking."

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resorts is open now.

It really brought tears to my eyes to see Jo Rowling standing in the midst of the realized vision she had so many years ago…come to life around her…how amazing an experience that must have been for her! This is stuff of fairy tales!

Wow, this must have JUST gone up. I know the actors are real people and not the characters they play, but there is still just something inherently wrong with Harry and Ron cheerfully raising a glass of butterbeer with Draco Malfoy!

Jo is beautiful and she must be SO proud! Her world is has been brought to life! That must be amazing. Anyway, I can’t wait to go! I saw photos of the lines from yesterday and today it’s absolutely mad.

That looks so cool! I am so jealous of the people that are there! I want to purchase my own wand, I want some Butterbeer myself and I’d also like to go on the Forbidden Journey.

WOW…I don’t have the words (for once in my life). Like SproutMdme, I was a little overwhelmed with emotion, & tears sprung out of nowhere!
So wonderful to be a part of this family :)
