Thanks for your comments. The pics you mentioned are actually from BrianOrndorf.com

The structure on the left is new and I believe it is the Owl Post Office


Better view od the Owl Post Office


And I have no clue what this is

Gosh, great set of pictures, but very depressing!! Up until I saw THESE, I felt the pictures looked like progress was quite far in. These make things look *very* skeletal...

Well...they have a year before HP land should be open and quite a lot will be done in that time.

Nah...I know some people have been told December 2009 or early 2010 but I firmly believe it will be mid-summer next year at the absolute earliest. Don't give up hope though!

Yeah, that's what I'm afraid of. Personally, I'd be happy with a soft opening even. Cause I don't think I'll get down to Orlando until 2012 after that... ... oh well, I'll be keeping my eyes and ears open

These photos and talk about new HP area are really getting us excited about a visit to Universal. We love WDW but with them not really having anything new that would stir a high level excitement our attention has turned toward Universal for the next two years. Just hope this will maybe give some good ol' competition in the Orlando area

I have to say I am super excited about this!! We have a cruise on DCL for Nov. 2010... hmmm perhaps we'll be staying at Universal instead of WDW before the cruise!?! We've never done IOA. We are enormous HP fans in our family, so this is going to go over HUGE with my DH and kids! I agree, WDW has nothing new coming in the next few years. Watch out, I think HP is going to be a huge draw.

Of course until there is a solid announcement of a date and that day actually comes it is all up in the air as far as opening dates go for any attraction anywhere. I'm hoping it will be opened before our August trip when before really doesn't matter to me.

We are looking forward to the Harry Potter Park too! We are thinking November 2010. We'll be going this October to use our free passes, our first time at US!
