Domo arigoto, Mr. Potter!
That's right, Harry Potter is officially going to Japan! The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is set to open its gates on July 15th, 2014! That's a mere 16 days before Harry Potter's birthday!
We're dancing like it's the Yule Ball over here!
While there will be no Dragon Challenge coaster, it will have Flight of the Hippogriff, and the Forbidden Journey! We just took a shot of Butterbeer in excitement!
Can we use some Floo powder to get over to Japan?! Like now?!
