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!

Yes! YES YES YES!

Hold on to your sorting hat, however, because apparently, this could all be happening much sooner than anyone had anticipated!

Like NEXT-YEAR sooner, you guys!

The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter To Expand?!

Good idea!

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park at Universal Orlando's Islands of Adventure may be undergoing an expansion as soon as Summer 2012!

Apparently The Lost Continent area isn't very popular anymore and Harry Potter just might take over that region of the park within the next 2 to 3 years!

We think that would be great for fans AND for Universal — definitely more $$$ to be made!
