That's right, a whole theme park based around the Hogwarts and all the other cool places described in J.K. Rowling's books. Plus, details about the park's signature attraction -- Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey -- have been revealed for the first time.So what will the park look like?

    While wandering the corridors of Hogwarts castle, guests will pass through Dumbledore's office. The office is an exact replica of the one seen in the Harry Potter films, and is the place where the Hogwarts headmaster officially welcomes you to Hogwarts.[​IMG]

    Hey CatDancer - THANK YOU! That was quite a tour, and one I would've never seen. I've never seen or read anything Harry Potter, but that attraction at Disney looks unbelievably fun & I'd go there in a heartbeat.
