Happy Monday and welcome to a new week of fun with us.
We'll start off the week with a look at Wizarding World Hollywood. We'd been using "Wizarding World West" but the official park hashtag is #WizardingWorldHollywood so we'll just start using that for our updates. =)

So now that Simpsons is open, Fast and Furious is about to open and the Night Tours are in "Technical Rehearsals" we can pretty much start to concentrate solely on Wizarding World. The rest of those things will come in separate updates for sure.
We'll start off where we always do, with the Hogsmeade archway.
Looking up to the castle. It's big.
Something is going on behind the trees
Some of the scaffolding has been removed to reveal ... windows!!!
The Great Hall was actually there behind all that scaffolding the whole time!!! =)
There's supposedly some Hippogriff track back there ... I may need to get my eyes checked.
From the other side, pictures just don't do this justice.
They are either planting more treees here or they are just growing.
Elsewhere around the park, the old Jaws was taking a well deserved vacation.
Hadn't noticed this before that the sports bottles only have a $0.99 refill price on the day of refill, so that means if you are an AP you can't get the low-cost refills on repeat visits. This is kind of odd considering pretty much every other park has refill options (other than Disney) and some parks even have a season-long Sports bottle now.
Lastly, the new dining/retail location continues to be built quickly. No word on what exactly it will be yet, but some kind of multi-use function is obviously what they are probably going for here.
Alright, that's going to wrap it up for this update. We'll probably have another update in a week or so.
Remember, if you have an AP you should have received an email about previews for Fast and Furious Supercharged, that attraction officially opens on June 25. The night tours are also coming soon which from what we've seen so far should be a lot of fun.
