Avatar ImageTarana says: First ?! Alex's idea sounds great. I've seen the Mickey show in Disney World and it was awesome! Btw, very funny that dude with the bowl of cereal in the back ;o)Avatar ImageEvealle says: That'd be so awesome if they did that! Who was that in the background with the cereal?Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Haha! Sounds great! And I agree with Tarana, funny Mr. Cereal dude in the back!Avatar Imagekiwimci says: I knew people would go on about cereal man, couldn't care less. You know what I'd like? You know the holograms they have of the trio and Dumbledore? I'd love to walk down some side corridor and see Ron and Hermione kissing on a loopAvatar ImagePhoenix Follower says: i'd love if they could have a ride that starts in the girls bathroom and then a big steep rollercoaster goes down to the chamber of secrets and you could see the big snake skin and the amazing set of the chamber! or the maze froom the triwizard tournament!<3Avatar ImageNoble Birth Descending says: I pondered this a lot when we were there for four days last October. I would chuck the whole "Lost Continent" Section and expand Harry Potter related stuff through the whole area. The divination shop and muggle magic shop (like the one near The Burrow) there could stay and a Fantasmic-type show could totally replace the Sinbad show. In fact, the whole area could be turned into Diagon Alley, even renaming the Mythos fancy food place, The Leaky Cauldron. They could add Madame Puddifoots back into Hogsmeade. A functional Hogwarts Express around the park would be cool as would boats across the lagoon from the entrance of the park to Hogwarts. I would also like a real Glad Rags (rather than a fascade) that included a sock section (like the one at the Soxx Shop) where Harry bought Dobby socks one Christmas. Oh, the possibilities! Please, please, please, someone ask me to be on the consumer advisory panel!!!Avatar Imagehpgirl4life87 says: You should be able to stay in the castle overnight in the house dormitories. Like how you can stay in Cinderella's castle now. Or just open up Hogwarts so you can wander and explore, no fancy attractions necessary. I would just want to feel like I'm living in the world, so spare no detailAvatar Imageiamnotworriedharry says: I noble birth's idea of a chamber of secrets type ride. I also thought it would be nice to have a ride like Forbidden Journey for younger or more timid fans. It was so fun but our boys thought it was too scary, and I have heard other parents say the same. Maybe a Quidditch ride that lets you feel like you are playing with them in a match. We also wanted more character interaction. We thought there would be "wizards" wandering through Hogsmeade interacting with patrons in character. I would also love if there was a hotel or you could stay in the castle. That would be priceless!! It is so beautiful there, I hope whatever additions they make are as nice. Avatar Imagesongbird says: I think there need be a few things for younger kids so that people coming with their whole family can enjoy it. I'm a huge fan, but my kids are too little to do anything in WWoHP. So they had to sit in strollers the whole time while I looked around and I didn't get to do ANY of the rides. BUT, from what I've heard about the rides, I wouldn't have gone on any of them anyway, because they are all roller coasters or they are simulation type rides that would make me sick (motion sickness) or scare the bejeepers out of me. So there needs to be something more tame...like the boat ride across the lake. It could be like the "It's a small world" ride at Disney. And I really like the idea of the show. And they definitely need more space, so getting rid of the lost continent is good....no one was even in that part when I was in the park. They could maybe have a sort of petting zoo by Hagrid's hut...even if not all of the animals were real. But definitely more for younger kids and fans with limited capacity for wild rides....something that EVERYONE can go on whether they are small, pregnant, disabled, sick, elderly, etc...Avatar Imagesongbird says: I think there need be a few things for younger kids so that people coming with their whole family can enjoy it.

Good luck!Avatar Imagetrontech says: I prefer that videos wait until I tell them to run instead of starting up just because I arrived at a website.Avatar ImageNoble Birth Descending says: What if the Sinbad Stunt show became the student's perspective of a reenactment of The TriWizard Tournament complete with dragons, mermaids and a sphynx! In my dream for Harry Potter Expansion, the Pteranadon Flyers and Camp Jurassic could be turned into the Chamber of Secrets with a huge series of slides and tunnels for the younger set similar with Fawkes flying you out of the Chamber. Or maybe, the flying ride could become thestrals (scary if you can't see them) where they let you out at the Ministry of Magic which was formerly known as the Jurassic Park Discover Center. After all, who knows what you'd find in the Department of Mysteries...Avatar ImageNoble Birth Descending says: The Jurassic Park River Adventure could become the final trip to Gringots: riding into the vaults, escaping on the blind dragon and being dropped into the lake at the end. I wouldn't mind a hotel room with five, four poster beds either.Avatar Imagejessyginny says: Yaay Kristina!!:D Sounds cool!:)Avatar ImageTarana says: Me too, Trontech! And hpgirl4life87, I'd love to wander around Hogwarts Castle too. And wouldn't it be great if the staircases moved? Safely, and with ample warning of course (it would almost be enough of a rollercoaster for me. I'm not much of hero in rollercoasters). I'm only afraid I wouldn't go and see the rest of the park outside WWoHP, just spend all my time in Hogwarts and the rest of the Potter park. I really do want to go there, but it will probably not even be this year. Here's hoping that I'll be able to make it early next year. Avatar ImageRoni says: oh come on :P the cereal dude is totally John. :PAvatar Imagemagichik says: I recently went there and there were lines to get into stores! I would add less lines!!!! hahaha!Avatar ImageGryffindor Lioness101 says: So cool! Amazing idea they should definitly try to work that into the park. Avatar Imagetoonlink9567 says: how about there is a game where u have 2 shoot voldemort and the death eaters with wands? (the lazer pointers look like wands)
