Hagrid's Hut!

As the grand opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter (WWoHP) draws near, various television shows are offering sneek peaks and features that are sure to thrill Potterheads like myself.  As you may recall, the magical addition will be opening June 18th at Islands of Adventure in Orlando, Florida. WWoHP will be included with general park admission and with your purchase of Discount Universal Studios Tickets.

According to Attractions Magazine, Hagrid’s Hut (pictured above) will be seen as part of a feature about The WWoHP on NBC’s The Celebrity Apprentice this Sunday, April 4.  Guests will pass the authentic replica on their way to the Flying Hippogriff, a family-friendly roller coaster.  Before boarding the attraction, guests will receive a lesson from Hagrid himself on proper hippogriff etiquette.

Now, firs’ thing yeh gotta know abou’ hippogriffs is, they’re proud. Easily offended, hippogriffs are. Don’t never insult one, ’cause it might be the last thing yeh do. Yeh always wait fer the hippogriff ter make the firs’ move. It’s polite, see? Yeh walk towards him, and yeh bow, an’ yeh wait. If he bows back, yeh’re allowed to touch him. If he doesn’ bow, then get away from him sharpish, ’cause those talons hurt.

Ellen DeGeneres, currently filming at the Universal Orlando Resort, aired a video yesterday from within WWoHP.  She and two very lucky boys wandered the streets of Hogsmeade, checking out the various stores and even rode the Flying Hippogriff!  Admit it – you know you’re bloody jealous!
