It isn’t ready to be ridden quite yet,  but The Hogwarts Express is getting closer to the station at Universal Orlando Resort.  Universal Orlando announced Thursday,  that the iconic locomotive and train tender, that will travel between Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, has been set in place.   Just like in the books and films – guests will be able to board the Hogwarts Express and travel between The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade, which opened in June 2010 at Islands of Adventure, and ‘London’ when The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley opens at Universal Studios Florida next year.
