Whoa, Momma!

Take a closer look at Universal Orlando's Wizarding World of Harry Potter on Thursday



Hey Mommas: We know that you became fans of the Harry Potter books and movies as much as your kids did. So, here's a little update on the new theme park attraction at Universal Studios Orlando:

Mom_hogwarts1 Back in September, I told you that the new Potter immersion theme park exhibit would open this spring. It will feature much of the world of Potter, including shops he has visited and Hogwarts, of course. In fact, just this week Universal released a photo of the theme park Hogwarts.

And starting Thursday, you can take an even closer look at the park -- but you have to buy a USA Today and have access to a Webcam to do it. Take the map printed in that paper and put it in front of your Webcam. Then you can take a look at Hogwarts castle; get a closer look at Hogsmeade village; and see where the Hogwarts Express has arrived.

This may just have to hold you until the park opens and the new Potter film is released in November. Now, if only there were a spell to speed up time.
