Holy beans. Such great pics.
And yeah, rumors are running rampant from Coke not being sold in the area to a special ceremony revealing the world every morning.
Plus over 100 pics, and the video teaser here.

OK it's a significant addition for those who are nuts about HP, but hey ho - it's 3 rides - only one of which can be ridden by little ones and a few shops and restaurants with a load of theming and (probably) animatronics in between... Attractions to include "your" wand picking you -mmm great marketing strategy....., possibly the sorting hat - how to get folks to buy stuff from all the houses ... especially red/gold scarves in Florida at the height of summer

Don't get me wrong - I'm excited and am a big fan of HP, BUT people keep hyping this up as if it's a whole new holiday destination, and I'm sure it will lead to disappointment....

amazing.

When I wrote the same I get my posts deleted, accused of starting trouble, jumped upon by a clique of people and warned by the mods.

Not everyone visiting Potterland goes home to a hot environment. Can someone say great White North?

Not if one does one's research. My bro, sis and I grew up reading HP and we're thrilled to drop our money buying up Honeydukes and getting an expensive piece of wood... Okay that last part sounded a bit wrong but you know what I mean!

I know what you mean - we are from the UK and need a scarf all winter, but I wouldn't really be thinking of them on hols in Florida....

Your bit about doing your research really is the key though - when we said we were going to friends - they were on about the Universal HP PARK, where you get to "fly on a broomstick" and go through the forbidden forest on a hippogryph etc.... don't know where the info comes from, but lots of people do think it is a whole new park and it has tons of rides... Obviously, using the DIS, Dibb, TGM and others, I do my research and won't be disappointed by it at all. But the "general public" might be.

I really hope so, we are leaving on the 26th for Disney and was planning on one day at Sea World if this does open we might do Universal instead.

OMG!!! Being able to visit the first half of this year was out of the question for us so I wasn't even following the progress of HP - I would have mademe even more depressed. We had a rough winter for serious health reasons and we couldn't even think about a US vacation but DS is on the mend and I received an unexpected bonus from work. So we are heading to US this summer! After reading most of this thread and looking at the pictures, it is evident the theming will be unmatched to anything in any other themepark! Can't wait!!!
