    From @InsideTheMagic:

    Hollywood's Wizarding World will have the "majestic Hogwarts castle to serve as the centerpiece of the themed environment"

The Upper Lot is a lot more realistic.

    But I'm just as curious as everyone else where they're going to put this place! I'm happy about it, though...I can't afford to travel to Florida, and I was so hoping I'd get to taste Butterbeer one day.
    This is why i do not understand why Universal has considered selling 100+ acres to a development company for residential use. DO they want more people complaining about noise even though they know that they are buying homes next to a theme park and studio

    Keyword is environment. We might just be getting the ride and not the entire land.

    As much as they claim the Wizarding World will be very much like the counterpart in Orlando, it won't work with small space of the Upper Lot. The only other solution I can see is they push out the park into the current entrance, taking out the flat parking lots and removing some restaurants and shops near Citywalk.

    This is what Universal Studios president Ron Meyer had to say about space at USH:

    Executives did not immediately describe their plans for the Hollywood park, but Meyer said there was enough room to expand.


    "We're not landlocked," Meyer said. "We're (on) 400 acres on this lot, and 200 of them are still not developed."

    Gosh, so they are thinking about going beyond the Upper Lot. Good news.

    Or maybe not. Right in the link is this.
    "Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky said he was told that a live concert venue, Gibson Amphitheatre, would be scrapped to make way for the attraction. He said it would open around 2014, but officials did not give a date,"

    I guess we have to wait and see.
