Harry Potter - Islands of Adventure (Universal Studios)

I see an increasing amount of chatter and excitement about the opening of this new themed area in Islands of Adventure. I passed by this area in Sept 2008, and it already looked pretty cool! Though Disney will always be #1 in my book, I was impressed by the theming in this park (I'm not normally a fan of Universal)... obviously Disney has set the trend. Anyway, if your plans take you to the Orlando area and perhaps the Universal area, you should check out some of the articles and Universal's microsite dedicated to this new area.

Universal's Harry Potter site: http://www.universalorlando.com/harrypotter/

I cannot wait for this to open, when we were down in December they were working on the buildings. Going to be awesome!

Oops, missed the sneak peek.

There are a ton of links out there to info. I've had several of them open on my browser for weeks - just wanted to list a few of them here (so I don't have to bookmark them)
