Hogwarts Express and Hogwarts Castle in Osaka

Harry Potter world opening in Universal Studios Japan!!!

AHHHHH!!! Came across these today and I’m getting hyped up all over again!

Photos will do all the talking, since I’m too giddy with excitement to be coherent.

HOGWARTS CASTLE!!!

THE SCAFFOLDING IS OFF!!!

THE SCAFFOLDING IS OFF!!!

It’s rumoured to open in Summer 2014. THAT’S LESS THAN 5 MONTHS AWAY!!!

The official Universal Studios Japan page states “Late 2014”, but they’re just being humble. I know it. It must be one of those under-promise, over-deliver strategies.

It must be, because how can they miss out on the month-long summer break? All those kids, all those $$$$$. Sorry, I mean ¥¥¥¥¥.

But man, that would mean I have to face crushing crowds, compete with a whole bunch of kiddos for every last butterbeer (can kids drink butterbeer? hopefully not.) and WHAT IF THERE ARE NO WANDS LEFT FOR ME?! Can Ollivander run out of supplies????

All of these in the crazy Osaka heat in the middle of summer! I almost died of heat stroke the last trip D: It reaches almost 40 degrees ok, no joke.

BUT.
IT WILL BE WORTH IT.

Hogsmeade wait for meeeeee!

Now I just need to rally fellow HP lovers to go with me. I can’t well be running around USJ by myself like I’m on drugs, shrieking and gushing over everything, can I?

One person, it’s loony behaviour.
Two and more, it’s ardent, passionate fans.

ZHEN, YOU ARE COMING, RIGHT???
CARYS???

    Lol omg your paranoidcrazyexcitement is so funny. You will have to battle kiddos for butterbeer, but Ollivanders is unlikely to run out of wands unless you buy the whole shop!

      But but… why if some kiddo buys out the shop BEFORE me?!

      (say so much, wait go there see the price of the wand, then decide not buy, hahaha! entirely possible.)
