Universal Orlando announced Wednesday the new area will open in 2014.
“For Harry Potter fans, this is an opportunity to go to multiple places that are iconic places within the story,” said Mark Woodbury, president of Universal Creative for Universal Parks and Resorts. “And people that were really not big fans of the franchise came to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and were immersed in the environment and really thought it was marvelous. We have the same expectation to take them on additional journeys.”
It will be built on what was the “Jaws” ride in the Universal Studios Florida park, which is next to Islands of Adventure — where Hogwarts and Hogsmeade are located.
