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.
