    Howdy Ricky,

    As you know, Inside The Magic has led the way in providing wonderful coverage of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Coverage even better,
    far better in fact, than Universal’s own website or any other Harry Potter
    Fan’s site that I have come across.

    With the new and final movie now less than a month away and with J.K. Rowling’s recent announcement concerning Pottermore, I believe that interest in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is continuing to grow.

    Given all this, I hope you will consider putting the Wizarding World Bar back at the top of Inside The Magic’s homepage so that those of us who are rabid fans of Hogsmeade and Hogwarts can, once again, enjoy all the wonderful information, videos, etc that you and your wife have gathered.

    Thank you for all you do. Adios for now. Talk to ya on down the trail.

      i agree that interest will continue to grow- with the movies being over, fans are looking for other ways to enjoy the stories of harry potter, such as TWWOHP and Pottermore.

    this is awesome! i am a huge potter fan and i hope to make a trip down there soon. also, i had a question about the wizarding world. in another ITM article, which was about “night of a thousand wizards”, it was mentions that universal resticts fans from dressing up as potter characters. does anynoe know why this is- it would seem more real, plus i would be in heaven to go down there dressed as hermione! (PS: can’t wait for deathly hallows part 2! midnight premiere, here i come!)

      There’s a fine line with how much you are able to dress up while visiting the Wizarding World. The reason for not allowing elaborate character-specific costumes is that guests could potentially confuse you with an official character and/or employee of Universal Orlando. And for safety (and legal) reasons that’s not something Universal can have. But they do sell ties, sweatshirts, and Hogwarts student outfits in the park, so that type of “costume” is allowed. It just can’t be too elaborate.
