    I can definately understand this. Harry Potter is becoming a phenomenon!

    It is also a very good literary venture so I say go ahead!

    (Just put it in the right park )

    I think Harry Potter mania has definitely died down from where it was 2 years a go.
    My dream is to play all day long at WDW!!!!

    It has died down a bit, but once the new film is released that will change

    I like the idea of a HP ride. I understand it's replacing "Who Wantd to be a Millionare." However, I liked "Millionare". I wish they would add on attrations rather than replace.

J.K Rowling's imagination seems to be a natural fit with Disney parks. For crying out loud, the kids even get to Hogwarts by train, so you know Walt would have loved the books!
    Wow, after reading this, I just started picturing a ride with all You mentioned here and just loved the idea of a Harry Potter attraction or two in one of the parks.

    I kinda think they won't build anything too elaborite because when the popularity (books and ride) dies they will have this huge ride that nobody is going in. Just my opinion.
