From Brian's newest batch of pics from the Nassal backlot, I highly believe these are corresponding pieces of the Hogwarts Castle facade:



Edit: Most likely without the older section and now with the clock tower.

Has there been any word yet of shutting down Dueling Dragons to change the interior? It would seem like the fall would be the time to start.

Hi, long term lurker, first time poster, those pics are great by the way. Was very interested in the development with HP. Does anyone know if there will be a boat ride? And does anyone know what the main ride will be? Other than the re-tooled Dueling Dragons, sorry if I missed this somewhere else.

The Three Broomsticks Restaurant? (Dining)




As we start to count the months until Islands of Adventure's new themed land opens, elements not related to the flagship ride begin to surface both in construction and design. I'm pretty confident in saying that the trademarked name "BUTTERBEER" will only be a cart/stand serving the unique beverage in the streets of "HOGSMEADE" as illustrated in the original concept art:






And while I and even the most enthusiastic Potter fans have no idea what the eatery known as "MAGIC NEEP" will be, the concrete knowledge that most have is that the main restaurant will feature full sized portions and be called The Three Broomsticks:




So, with that said, it's time to start thinking about the nitpicky aspects of the magical island, including what is available to eat. Here are some questions which have yet to be answered by the Universal Creative team.

1. Will it feature counter service as the Enchanted Oak did or will Three Broomsticks become IOA's third full service upscale restaurant?
2. Are the same menu items on the horizon?
3. Will there be meet and great with actors resembling Harry and other important characters from the series?
4. If tourists will enjoy specific Potter food to begin with, how will they be modified to suit the American palate?
5. Because The Three Broomsticks will pretty much be the only sit down establishment of the new area, what do you suppose the capacity for diners will be since people will be flocking to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter for everything it has to offer, including what it has to eat?

It is supposed to open between Dec. 2009 and June 2010. At this point that is all we know.

Me neither. They need a good bit of magic to get any of it ready by then.
