That's exciting news! Especially since I am planning to move to LA area next year. I moved to Oregon a couple of months ago from the East Coast and never visited the HP at Universal in Florida so look forward to this attraction opening up

I hope it does well, but it seems rather late in the game to be building something like this. Harry Potter isn't as trendy as it was a few years ago, and I wonder how popular this park will be in about 5-6 years.

They didn't have Harry Potter when I was a kid, and I would have DIED OF HAPPINESS to go to something like this. (kinda dying of happiness now, heh)

I think it could just be called "Wizarding World" with nothing to do with Harry Potter and it would still do well.

That's awesome I just wanna see what butterbeer is like.

I'm with Caladium though. The trend might be over but I imagine they can easily reroute it into Twilight/Hunger Games/Lightning Thing kind of stuff, or best of all, Game of Thrones.
