Muggle Monday's

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is really coming along!! Check out this awesome picture of Hogwarts!! This is the actual castle after they construction was finished! Looks AMAZING!! Here are some additional facts (thanks to The Leaky Cauldron) on the park and a photo that WB released showing their vision for Ollivanders!!**The wand-choosing experience will last from 2-5 minutes per person, and the team is currently working on how to handle what are expected to be long wait times.

**The inside of the castle includes rooms built to full scale from the films - Dumbledore's office, the Great Hall, the Gryffindor Common room, and more

**The Ollivander's shop will include every detail from the books possible, down to the tinkling bell, the single window, and the sign that hearkens the shop back to 382 b.c.

**The experience of having your wand choose you is free, though the wand costs money to buy.

**The wands have all been designed by Stuart Craig and approved by J.K. Rowling.

**When trying out your wands, there may be mishaps in the shop - flowers wilting, thunder and lightning in the store, etc. - when you use the wrong one.

**There are no current plans for "dark" areas of Hogsmeade, a la Nocturne Alley, but Coup said to "stay tuned for that."

I will keep you all updated when they release the date for the opening!! I cannot wait!!!! I really hope I get to visit it later this year! (fingers crossed)
HP and the Super Bowl!!!
There is going to be a commercial in the FIRST half of the Super Bowl for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter!! I'm excited to get a good look at what all the park has to offer!!
