OMG they are finishing up things SO FAST now. I looked at this thread like a week or two ago and there was no nearly-complete looking castle yet!

Some insider knowledge:

The project is a full 2 months ahead of schedule.
The castle is (source said "will be") visible from the parking lot, and officially taller than Cinderella castle
He/She said that the "Cobra" was delivered today and it looks AMAZING. I can only assume he/she meant the Basilisk.

Does anyone know what the scale of the castle at IoA is in comparison to how big the castle is supposed to be in the movie?

if anyone here gets Orlando Attractions magazine, check out the Harry Potter article in the issue that just came out (Winter, 2010). It was written by me! I managed to score an interview with the owner of one of the movie effects places that is working on the project. He had to be careful what he said, but after talking to him I am certain it's going to be AMAZING.

Just got my magazine yesterday, it was a great article, very informative and covered all the bases. I even showed it to a co-worker whose sis lives in Orlando and after looking at the pics she said "Oh, I need to go visit Katy" LOL, She's not even a huge Harry fan! Personally, I can't WAIT for this to open!! I'm planning a trip in Jan 2011, hopefully they'll have all the kinks worked out by then and all the initial crush of people will be over!

Holy smokes! I am so excited for this to be open! I am such a huge Harry Potter fan, I have grown up with the books, they are incredible! I can't believe that are making this world come alive, straight out of the books! I am going there for my 18th birthday this June! Me and Harry are the same age
