We're all aboard this new photo! TOOT TOOT!
First Starbucks is making Butterbeer, and now the Hogwarts express has officially arrived to Universal Orlando! Siriusly, it's time to celebrate! Chocolate frogs for everyone!
If someone told us we'd have to ram a shopping cart into a brick wall to get to Platform 9 and 3/4, we'd gladly do it, and then have Madam Pomfrey mend our broken bones after!
But now, we don't have to. The Hogwarts Express train arrived yesterday at the Universal Orlando Resort and was placed on tracks between the Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios Florida!
The train will act as a transport between The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Hogsmeade in Islands of Adventure, and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Diagon Alley in Universal Studios, which will Alohomora (unlock) its gates next year!
There is no sum of knuts and sickles we won't pay to get to ride the same train THE Harry Potter took yearly to Hogwarts, you know, when he wasn't getting attacked by Dementors, or flying in a car, or hunting horcruxes!
Uh, did someone just slip us some Skele-Grow? Because we've regrown a huge bone just thinking about taking a ride on this train! We're basically placed under the Cruciatus in torture waiting for Diagon Alley to open up shop!
