Who is the one who actually takes these pictures? Just curious because last time I was at universal (about 2 weeks ago) I happened to see a random helicopter just hovering over the park.

Great photos.
I wonder how they will mask the backlot as you pass between parks on the train? The train scenes from the movie were always some of the most stunning.

I would imagine the "windows" of the train will simply be digital screens. That would be a heck of a lot cheaper than building sets along the track. Also, much easier to switch out or alter for special events, new graphics or scenes, and avoiding costly repairs.

Hope they keep in mind their larger guest on these new Harry Potter attractions. I have seen so many people get turned away at Forbidden Journey due to body shape and size.

I drive by the Cabana Bay resort area several times a week and it is going up really fast. Those rooms look tiny though and they look like exterior hallways facing out on to Turkey Lake Road and Hollywood Way.

Great article! Thanks for the pictures! I love how the people behind Universal Orlando are always changing and updating the park. I just got back from Universal and Islands of Adventure about 3 weeks ago. I plan to go again in early 2015. In that span of time they will have added: The Transformers Ride, Diagon Alley, and possibly Springfield.

That's why Universal Orlando Resort has always been my favorite theme park destination. They always have new attractions debuting, so the park always feels like a fresh experience when you visit.

Love the shots! Can't wait to see what they have in store for the visuals while riding the train. My guess is digital displays with cinematic graphics in place of windows.
