Wizarding World of Harry Potter Construction Update: 3/9/09


I suppose this update is best viewed right after a trip to the last update from 2/3.

With Spring Break crowds approaching soon, construction continues rapidly at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter site at Universal Orlando's Islands of Adventure. Here's the latest from Hagrid's Hut, which has completed its exterior work and will now sit there while the rest of the Hogwarts building is shaped and sealed for the massive ride installation. Rumor has it that the Hut will only be for show and storage purposes, and not an actual building for guests to tour. A shame.

(sorry for the blurry quality of some of these pics - 'tis the life of a superspy)
