    Emma Watson played Hermione Granger, not Emma Thompson. Emma Thompson played Professor Trelawney.

      I must have had “Saving Mr. Banks” on the brain. Fixed. Thanks!

        No problem! I just didn’t want the readers to be confused. It sounds like you had an awesome day yesterday. This is going to be one awesome experience!

        Did they give you any hint as to an opening date?

        1. Ricky Brigante

          None at all, but rumors strongly point to mid-June like last time.

  2. “Surprisingly, one of the main stars of the ride will be the other Weasley brother, Bill.”

    Given that there’s a dragon on top of Gringott’s, it’s not -that- much a surprise. 😉

      Not to flaunt my Potter love too much. But Charlie Weasley is the Dragon Wrangler, not Bill. Bill being a Gringott’s employee is why he’ll play a huge factor probably. And if I’m misunderstanding what you meant, accept my apologies.

      1. Ricky Brigante

        That is exactly the reason why Bill will be leading guests through the bank tour.

      2. Whoops. Hard to keep all those Weasley kids straight. Don’t tell my wife, she’ll never let me live it down. LOL 🙂

    I really love Harry Potter. It is a magical place where I can escape all my problems. I pretend that I am going to Wizarding school too. Now I can do this in real life too. I think I am going to spend a whole week down there and have lots of wizarding adventures and eat lots of chocolate frogs.

    Thanks so much for all the behind the scenes as this HP Mom cannot wait to plan a return trip back to soak in more HP..sounds like it’s even better!!

    I am breathless with anticipation! This all looks so exciting! Thank you for these detailed updates, which are the best of any I’ve read.

    Did they reveal what that strange walkway is going across the top from “carkit” to diagon that you can see in the map above (on the real life overview pictures too)?

  7. Jason

    Is a higher resolution version of that map available somewhere? I’d love to zoom in on that!

  8. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a
    coworker who was doing a little research on this. And he
    actually ordered me dinner simply because I discovered it for him…

    lol. So let me reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanks for spending the time to talk about this topic here on your internet site.
