Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer Announces Harry Potter Expansion at Universal Studios

Updated: 05 March 2013 01:10:16 AM

Orlando mayor Buddy Dyer sent Harry Potter fans wild on Feb. 27th when he mentioned the “Expansion of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter,” at his state of the city address.

The mayor further hinted that the expansion would be ready by the summer of 2014.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter originally opened in June, 2010 following the unprecedented success of the Harry Potter book series and film franchise.

Universal Studios Spokesperson

The attraction at Universal Studios gave the park a much needed updated feature and an expansion was initially announced by the park in 2011, though no opening date was provided.

Following Dyer’s announcement, Universal spokesperson Tom Schroder warned against any speculation regarding when the Harry Potter expansion will be ready as no official announcement has been made yet.

Not surprisingly, Universal Studios and Harry Potter fans have already begun to discuss what the expansion will include.

Construction

Construction in the area has been ongoing for quite some time, with many hoping it will feature a recreated London complete with a Gringotts ride to replace the existing and outdated Jaws attraction.

There is also speculation that a Hogwarts Express train will be installed, which would connect Universal Studios with the Island of Adventure.

It’s safe to say that despite what Tom Schroder has said, fans will be hoping for a 2014 opening in what could prove to be a huge boost to the theme park’s business.
