The Wizarding World of Harry Potter: A Sneak Peek

There’s magic in the air at Universal Studios Hollywood.

Beginning April 7th, 2016, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter will open the gates of Hogsmeade and beyond to the Muggle population on the west coast. As they gear up to welcome the public at large, a select few non-magical folk had the opportunity to walk, shop, and ride in the new land. Here are a few glimpses in to this amazing new place, as well as a clip of the Hogwarts Frog Choir in action (All photos and video taken with an iPhone 6s, with minimal editing for size):
