While still a brand new attraction at Universal Orlando, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter has been so popular thus far that the area could witness an expansion in the next few years.
According to Mugglenet, a Universal tour guide said that the HP attraction would be taking over the Lost Continent, an area of Universal Orlando’s Islands of Adventure. Due to this rumor, the expansion of Potter’s attraction would be prime real estate given that it’s adjacent to the Wizarding World.
Thus, some predict that an expansion could open as early as Summer of 2012 but only if construction began immediately.
According to JSYK, swarms of people have flocked to Universal Orlando to visit the Harry Potter attraction, causing overcrowding and long waits. Some families, in fact, have come to the park and haven’t been able to get in at all.
