Rumor alert – summer 2014 opening of Wizarding World of Harry Potter expansion?

Will the expansion of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter be open next year? According to Orlando Business Journal, the answer is…possibly. Buddy Dyer, the Orlando Mayor said this statement during his State of the City address:

This summer [Universal Orlando Resort] will open the new Transformers 3-D ride, followed by the opening next year of a new resort hotel and the expansion of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Universal has been working for awhile to finish this expansion, but an exact opening is not certain. This quote by Dyer hints at the possibility of seeing results by next summer, 16 months away. We can speculate whether we think this opening is plausible, but keep in mind that nothing has been confirmed by Universal or Warner Brothers. Until we hear from them directly, consider it a rumor.

We will let you know as soon as we hear anything else! Do you think the expansion could be done by summer 2014? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
