Okay so while you won’t be able to have Hagrid take you on a boat to get your first glimpse of Hogwarts (they are totally missing the boat on that ride by the way, I mean why not!) you can walk through Hogsmeade station into Hogsmeade!
So they took down the walls across from Hogsmeade Station and pushed back the wall in front of it to reveal the trees and some stone work. There is a gap in the temporary wall and the trees where I got this photo! Looks like they have the fencing to put up still.
They even took the wall down in the back area where I sneak and climb to get photos!
I love the new sign out front of the station. And there is a fire hydrant?
Over on the Diagon Alley side there was not to much new stuff this weekend. Well the Dragon of course but I don’t have a good enough camera to get a photo at that distance. You can see it from the Transformers area and Central Park. It is partially covered but I saw on Twitter they added the wings this morning. They are running the train with steam and whistle and everything!
Looks like they are adding a layer of paint to the wall to age it and I saw they have most of the lighting done so I am going to try and go over there at night next time to get photos of that.
I don’t think the King’s Cross sign was on the metal overhang before but can’t remember for sure lol.
Are you ready? I know I am!
No really, why isn’t this a ride!!!! Are they that dumb, do they not know us fans at all!
