First Look: Hogwarts Castle in Orlando

Though still very much a work in progress, Hogwarts castle is beginning to take shape above Hogsmeade as work continues on The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort. Hogwarts will be the home of a new attraction, Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, that uses ground-breaking technology to bring the magic, characters and stories of Harry Potter to life. Set to open this spring, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter will feature multiple themed attractions, shops and a restaurant.
