The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, Florida has been keeping the expansion of the park very secret over the last year. Although we have had many speculations of the contents of the expansion, there still has been no official release of information as to what we can expect in the newly renovated area of Universal Studios.
However, a new article from MiceChat, shows construction of what can only be assumed to be the Hogwarts Express train ride that will take visitors from the new Expansion Area of 'Diagon Alley' at the Lost Continent section to the original area of Hogsmeade and Hogwarts at the Islands of Adventure section.
New photos from the website capture images of a long winding wall connecting the two sections of the theme park, hiding a clearing of land that fits the speculation of the Hogwarts Express train ride.
You can see these images here:

The above images include the area of expansion on the Lost Continent where we believe the London section of Harry Potter will be built, including Diagon Alley, a Gringotts Bank Cart Ride and possibly Knocturn Alley.
Until we receive official press releases from Universal Studios, please keep these in the rumor status, but we remain confident of most details.
