So, are they going to get rid of the red and blue coloring on the rollercoaster, as it really doesn't fit in with the rest of the color scheme - too modern and brash for the Harry Potter/Scotland?

Oh how I wish WDW got this instead - hate how you can see power lines and hotel buildings, apartments, etc, in some of these shots, and how it seems so squished in. This area of Orlando is so developed - how anticlimactic to be able to see a lot of Hogwarts from other areas, even from outside studio property.

Well, look at it this way, Disney has had 10 long years to come up with an attraction better than Spiderman and haven't done it yet. I don't think Disney would put forth enough effort/investment to make the Wizarding World like it should be, which is why J.K. Rowling went to Universal.

But as a side note, ignoring all of that for a minute, what park would Disney even put Harry Potter into if it had the rights? DHS? I can't see it fitting at MK or AK and clearly not Epcot.

The plastic sheets are around the castle at Dueling Dragons. Looks like they are going to be making some changes to the exterior and want to keep it a secret.

Shewww I was freaking out thinking they were going to hide the castle from view. Hopefully it is too big to do that with. Anyone know anyone who has peeked behind sheets at DD, wonder what it looks like. I know it's like a kid at Christmas. I was always the one hunting for the hidden presents, opening and rewraping

Well, it's not like you can't see hotel buildings and power lines all over Disney, and you're going to be able to see that much of Hogwarts from other areas simply due to its massive size, irrespective of where you put it.

I'm very glad Disney wasn't able to get the rights. Universal has a much better recent track record of actually putting the kind of investment their attractions need to be the best of their type.

No specific dates yet. At least the opening has moved up from Summer 2010, to Spring 2010 though.

Great Pics Don Pacho. Keep them coming. I can't wait.
