I can't wait until the end of this month so I can see the "updates" for myself I should have been there the end of Sept but ended up with the flu that went into pneumonia so needless to say, I had to cancel that trip. I am on the mends now and do plan on being there for HHN the end of the month

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

Thanks for all the updates Don Pacho!! It's really coming together now.

And for those out there that need a little more help


And the Astronomy Tower as shown in Half-Blood Prince:


Edit: So yeah, once I pushed submit Drew already posted a better picture. Well played.

I believe this piece to be the courtyard like facade that will sit in front of the Great Hall.


Also, but very random, Brian Orndorf noticed that a cartoony Potter ornament already is decorating the Port of Entry Christmas shop.

Theming of the queue for Hogwart's is underway.

Also, does anyone have a pic of the front of Hagrid's Hut? I have been resourcing trying to locate a good pic of what the front of his hut looks like at IOA.
