    Awesome Although I don't think it will be before July, alas. The Gibson Schedule board on City Walk was just updated with something that month

    of course, they Could start demolition elsewhere before they bring down the Gibson, guess we will have to wait and see.

    Just to wet your whistle, there has been some(time heavy) utility work being done in the backstage areas between CityWalk and WW/Gibson/ST. Construction has been ongoing since the beginning of Summer.

    Hmmm, but is it Potter related?

    oooooooo! Is it that area on the other side of the IMAX building? I noticed some construction at the employee shuttle stop over there.

    The backstage construction currently runs roughly the length of the backside of Camacho's/Karl Strauss to the backside of iFly.

    ...and down by the back of the Gibson too, it seems.

    The Nov. 30th West coaster has some pictures of the area with metal plates covering the construction. They are saying"Work has officially begun on The Wizarding World of Harry Potter for Hollywood!"

    Thanks!

    So that's about from Waterworld to the Gibson, like we all thought!

    However, by "utility work" do they mean getting water main connections ready and electrical attachments set up, or is it more about widening pipes for increased water usage and such?

    or maybe its all about getting foundations prepared? Hmmmm

    I tried, but I think Micechat has it blocked. Here's the link anyway, type "West Coaster" as one word where it says "Link to unauthorized site removed" and also close all the gaps.

    Re: Any Universal Hollywood Harry Potter updates?

    I'm looking forward to this more than I've ever looked forward to any other theme park development--outside of Central Florida. Imagine if Steve Burke tries to outdo the WWoHP in Orlando and if the view of Hogwarts becomes a SF Valley landmark. Can't wait!
    Really.
    Hurry, please!

    Good idea, and Eminent Domain should also be used so Universal can get some of the neighboring homes.
