    How's that...
    That... sounds freaking spectacular! I can't wait!


    BTW, this is pretty cool:

    I just hope the coaster part isn't as thrilling as mummy. I'm a bit of a ride chicken

    So here are a couple of questions I haven't seen answered:
    1) Will they be "prettying up" the parts of the train tracks that are visible from onstage, or is what we see what we're going to get?
    2) Is there going to be ANY sort of phased opening? I'm assuming Rowling wouldn't let it happen, buy I have to imagine that Uni is ready to open a butter beer location on the Studios side ASAP.

    No phased opening! That's not to say that The Hogwarts Express won't soft open before the rest of DA. But for the Grand Opening, all will be open.

    Thanks for posting the video Felipe. I find it curious that they didn't yet distress the window frames of #12 while they had the scaffolding up... Perhaps AG wants to sit on a milk crate and watch every stroke of the brush unimpeded.

    Good lord, could you imagine?

    And I suppose for the finer details, it's easier to do via cherry picker or scissor lift. Scaffolding probably throws off lighting and adds shadows.

    They didn't take down the scaffolding because they are idiots. But I would be surprised if it has anything to do with the 12/12/13 announcement.

    I hope that you aren't suggesting that I am calling anyone idiots. I was merely being curious as to why it wasn't done while the scaffolding was in place.

    Over time you will see changes made to the section by Beetlejuice. Before Grand Open? Maybe but nothing is for sure yet. I'll tell you this the one area I'm concerned we "lose" the magic is the HE extended overflow at the North Station.

    No phased openings. The North Station is one of the furthest buildings behind schedule. Many aspects of this project are behind schedule so the main thing I'm concerned with is ride effects that could be cut at the last minute in order to open on time. It happened at the FJ and it could happen here.

    Not really anything new/groundbreaking, but still nice to see a couple of locations being confirmed through permit filings.

    Do we know exactly what the Fountain of Fair Fortune in DA is? The name is taken from a popular Beedle the Bard tale. It was also the first play every put on by Hogwarts...

    These permits are for food service locations.

    Yes I'm aware. That's why I want to know why an eatery is named after a tale from Beedle the Bard.

    So, while it has been established repeatedly that there won't be any phased openings, does this mean that the waterfront area will also remain off-limits until Diagon Alley is opened?
