My daughters went to the MOS exhibit - they thought it was incredible! I'm thinking of taking DD15 as she just would love to go again, and i really want to sit in Hagrid's chair, LOL!

OK, so even if Disney couldn't do it like Universal, wouldn't it have been better to get land somewhere else, so you could spread out and expand a bit, and even have a Hogwarts Express train really take you from the parking lot to the gate, etc?

BTW, I thought WDW had their grid underground - that's why they seldom lose power...

I'm so excited, it's coming along great. I love seeing it from the interstate. I'm waiting to get my new annual pass until closer to time, so until them I'm having Universal withdrawals. Even my mom, who doesn't like Universal that much, said today that she missed it. Hurry up!!!!!

To the person who said he wish he lived here so he could go everyday and still wouldn't get sick of it, that might be true, but you still gotta fit real life into that mix. You know, work, to pay for your habit. Haha! We go to some park at least twice a month though and still don't get sick of it.

Keep the pictures coming and thanks for the updates!

Oh how exciting to see the developments

We're heading there in May '10 and we're currently hoping and praying that it'll be open for us to adventure around! My Dad would totally freak out, he's a big HP fan!

Thats Duelling Dragons, fire & Ice, will be rethymed to tie in with HP, although will not take much IMHO to rethyme it.

Hogwarts model shows something else. Not that hole with the pendulum inside.
Maybe that element attached to the clock tower wall is only a regular clock.
We'll see

Tip re this new contest..I may be the only dumb one here but I could not figure it out!

when you mouse over map the only thing available now is "video" ..you have to actually watch it to get the next contest entry, it is considered an activity......

I was very frustrated with it and then watched video and voila! it worked...

I got as far as everybody else. You can earn more entries, but you gotta keep checking back. They will have tasks that you need to complete to earn more entries.
