Alohomora! The secret is now unlocked as to when Universal Studios Orlando will open the attraction the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, though the specificity of spring 2010 doesn’t help a whole lot in terms of planning the family vacation.

Our travel blog was one of the many to announce it earlier in the week, and they’ve also included a lot about the attractions, food and shops that will be making their way to the Islands of Adventure’s recreation of Hogsmeade village.

A more explanatory video was later released, with some of the artistic minds behind “Harry Potter” discussing the new attraction. Tom Felton, Draco Malfoy himself, stopped in to do the honors of making the announcement.

    The Harry Potter series wrote by JK Rowling is a terrific fiction that takes the reader in possession and take him to the voyage of wizardry world. Most impressive part of the story in that author has simply kept intact the human values and emotions even in the midst of dramatic sequences of glamour and uncertainities of wizardry.
    Congrats Miss Rowling and all the characters of Potter series movies and the people in production process.
    I would love to see more of it.

    This is going to be amazing! I just hope thay have few more attractions. I feel they shouldve started teh journey at the Leaky Cauldron and made Diagon Alley a big part too. But I still hope to visit the park when it opens it'll be wonderful!
