Nothing beats Mouse & the motorcycle.

Harry Potter is going to be around for quite a while. Those books are well written, engrossing stories.
Yeah, Dr. Seuss was a literary and creative genius. Rowling is not. This, of course, says nothing about the popularity of either. Dr. Seuss published his first children's book in 1937. It's safe to say that his work is enduring, not a whimsical fad. The long term success of Harry Potter remains to be seen.
I agree Harry Potter is not really that good, the story is a rip of many other stories and movies that have been done before and converted to a different story line with similar adventures to even some HBO Halloween series I remember watching as a kid.
I am glad it did get more kids to read again although.
And yes comparing Dr Seuss to Rowling is about as far in left field as you can get. Seuss has had the test of time to establish his work as a master peace. Rowling’s work is predictable and I have to agree for the fad statement.
Time will only prove the true works of art.
Ok now before you "As someone so greatly put it" basement nerds get ticked off.
I do believe a Harry Potthead themed land will add much needed atmosphere to IOA. No doubt about it and very smart decision.
Also when you look at the Owls eye view the coaster in front of the castle looks possible for a flyer layout. They have wanted a B&M flyer for some time now, will be neat to see what they announce.
:::: Sorcerer Mickey could kick Potters a$$ any day ::::
Best part of this: Besides IOA finally getting something new. Disney will once again step up to the plate.
Will be interesting to see what’s under their sleeves because they have known about this for some time.
5th Gate, or huge expansion to Animal Kingdom, hmmm. Time will tell.
