Post Entrepreneurs get ready for Harry Potter World in Florida

With construction of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park scheduled for late 2007 at the Universal Orlando Resort, people have high hopes that it will pump $250 million to $500 million into an economy that's been seeing park attendance level off.

About 40 small business owners who lend their own wizardry to theme parks stand to benefit. "There is a role for us to play, and it will come to us when [Universal's] project ideas are a little more polished," says Toni Brown, applications engineer for Gilderfluke & Co., a seven-employee, $3 million company that designs control equipment for rides.
The details, however, are as secret as the ending of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was before the book, the last in J.K. Rowling's seven-volume series, came out in July. Bill Nassal Sr., whose 135-employee, $30 million Nassal Co. designs faux rocks and other props, had to sign a confidentiality agreement just to talk with Universal. Says Nassal: "We can't say a word about any of this."

This is sooooo exciting! I am actually kinda happy that it doesn't open until 2010. Right now I live in Alaska due to army relocation. 2010 is the year we are scheduled to go back home to Virginia, so I have a better chance of being able to go when it first opens!! And my kids will be a lil older and maybe would enjoy it more, right now they don't really know about HP at almost 2 and almost 4 years old
