Did I read that they will have both alcohol & non-alcohol butterbeer? We are beyond excited for HP land to open. The great news is that Island of Adventure is already a great park with lots of fun things to do. With the Magic of HP it's going to be awesome! Can't wait to walk in and hear the music playing, and wander through the shops, etc.

There is no difference. Who said there was? I really am confused as to why you have brought a disney ride into this as though it will suddenly disprove what I have wrote. If my view is correct then you can write 400 examples of Disney doing the same but it still doesnt mean what I wrote is wrong.

Universal is still saying Spring 2010. So I don't see why it wouldn't be open by then. We're going the very end of April and fully expect it to open the day AFTER we leave.

New rides, old rides, old rides made-over to be new...TS/QS...??? My family and I are just SO excited about the whole overall theme of this new land/area/park/section that we can't wait to go. We love DW too, but really like all of the different themes at US/IOA. Jurrasic Park blew me away & Seuss land was adorable.

Anyhow, it's fun to watch the progress and see how things are unfolding. When we were there a few years ago there were just a wall of boards annoucing WWoHP...but now, seeing pics & ads/commercials, plus the updates here at the DIS...it's really happening & we can hardly wait!!!

Bring on the Butter Beer!!!

Butterbeer cart? Pumpkin Juice cart? Other kind of cart or scenery?



I really like these carts too.



There is the snowman. I did notice...is this the only snow on the ground? I thought from the original building from Nassal that there would be snow on the ground, though I didn't know how they'd do it.



What is that little object in the foreground? Water fountain? More importantly, what are these shops? I don't think the flyovers ever looked at this side of the avenue. They get a shot of Ollivander's and then fly up to Hogwarts.



Don't get me wrong, the DC entrance is nice, but way too subtle. I was kind of hoping for homage to Pyrrock and Blizzrock statues but that was wishful thinking.



I absolutely love the entrance to FotH. Really beautiful. I wish DC's was more like it.

And the Dueling Dragons queue is now down to one lane/ one way traffic. And it passes through both arches including the one with the show on top.













And then these guys came up and made me delete a bunch of pics.




Has this path always been here?

I can't wait and love the screen shots of the video! It was hard to see them on the Uni site because the descriptions would pop up right after the image loaded.

Thanks for the pics Disneyhead!

I know those two guys were just doing their job, but really would've liked to have seen what pics they made you delete???

Ahhh well, all the more to anticipate, I suppose.

That helicopter video is really great. I know people here have said the actual ride building behind hogwarts was huge, but OMG it is HUGE!

Our family is looking forward to the new area, The Wizzarding World of Harry Potter. We hope they will have all the kinks worked out by the time we arrive in the summer. Another area where the imagination can run wild is always a fun place to visit. I wonder how many little things will be imbedded in the scenery that only people who have read the books will pick up on?
