Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort celebrates 5 years open
 
The very first Wizarding World of Harry Potter opened five years ago today, June 18, at Universal Orlando Resort. The opening gala was one for the ages, and SnitchSeeker was of course there live in 2010 to bring the latest. Here are a few highlights from Hogsmeade's opening that spring.

For those who missed it or weren't around, do feel free to read SnitchSeeker's report on all the great events from that week right here.

The week of events included the incredible red carpet event and Hogwarts unveiling on Wednesday, June 16, 2010, which ended with this spectacular shot of the castle.

Since its opening five years ago, two new Wizarding World of Harry Potter attractions have and will be open to fans worldwide, like at Universal Studios Japan.

Much more to come from Universal's Wizarding World of Harry Potter attractions: next up, the opening of Hogsmeade at Universal Studios Hollywood in spring 2016.

*longing sigh*

One of these days...

And now for a rant- Who in the world thought it would be a good idea to have the winners be first graders? Fifth graders would have been a more logical choice.

FIVE years? I honestly should visit the WWoHP someday. :xd:
