In the past few months, we here at HPSupporters have shared rumors with you about the expansion of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, Florida and here is more news. New permits surfaced last week providing us with more information suggesting that Universal Orlando is building a working Hogwarts Express. If you’ve missed any info about the expansion, you can find it in previous posts from December 2011, January 2012 and lastly, March 2012.
The new permits, which were filed on June 1 by Universal Orlando, call for three new elements to the park including a North Station, South Station, and Connector. I’m assuming that the station would start in Universal and travel through the parks into Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Sources at Hypable.com think that the North Station would house the Hogwarts Express in Universal and South would host it in Islands of Adventure. I couldn’t agree more.
Park Rumors posted these permits that were requested from the park:
Universal Orlando has only confirmed that the Wizarding World of Harry Potter was expanding, but they have been tight-lipped about what the actual expansion entails. It makes me wonder why they are being so quiet about it. All I know, I plan to go back once the expansion has taken place, and maybe even before then. Thanks goes out to Hypable!
