The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood doesn’t officially open for another four weeks, but it has been undergoing open-to-the-public technical rehearsals since mid-February (check out our extensive video coverage of the area here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4.)

This week a select group of media was granted a private tour of the new Wizarding World with one of its designers, supervising art director Alan Gilmore. The tour provided a terrific peek at the new land and a wonderful insight into the differences between the Florida and California versions of Hogsmeade.
