Other than that, my photos are similar to the others posted earlier, but closer shots of the plants and megaphone/speakers than the others. I will try to get the video up tomorrow after I've checked to see if what I could hear in person is audible in the videos.

They were doing work and testing the Express all day yesterday. In fact there are pictures of it steaming and video as well.(click here)
Plus lights are on inside Three Broomsticks and there is something mysterious sitting next to the track on the roof of Hagrids Hut. Too small to be a train, but it definitely has wings.

I haven't seen this mentioned yet... sorry if it was. Ellen is going to be taping her show at Universal on March 28 and 29 (to air April 1 & 2). In conjunction with the trip she is also asking to hear from viewers who are big Harry Potter fans. Since in the past she has had exclusive premieres for Potter movies, etc and appears to be a big Potter fan herself, I'm thinking she might be showing some sneak peeks into Harry Potter land on her show.

That's very possible. Make sure to tune in those days to find out.

That all depends on how things progress. If she's able to do a sneak peek, that would be incredible! If not, d'oh.

I have heard that Ellen is going to do some segments on the new area but not on the new ride.

Me too. I don't think the greenhouse is going to get any more enclosed.

2010 - The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - (3/15/10) According to Universalís website, Dueling Dragons is slated to only remain closed through to March 18th, so look for it to open on Friday morning if all goes well. Like before, Iím guessing they wont be using the castle queue until they are ready to launch the entire Wizarding World experience. No word on if the new dragon skins will be on the trains or not. You can see a photo update of the latest construction around the rest of the Wizaring World at Behind the Thrills this week. Included are pictures and a video showing off the Hogwarts Express with the smoke effect working. Another construction update around IOA can also be seen at Orlando Parks News.
