Universal Orlando is putting the finishing touches on its new Harry Potter Attraction, which is set to open in the Spring. The exterior of Hogwarts Castle at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is just about complete, and with this new milestone Universal Studios releases this official statement & photo:

The magical transformation continues. Although still very much a work in progress, the magnificence of Hogwarts castle is beginning to take shape above Hogsmeade as work continues on The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Hogwarts will be the home of a thrilling, new, state-of-the-art attraction – Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey – that uses ground-breaking technology to bring the magic, characters and stories of Harry Potter to life in ways never before experienced. Set to open in Spring 2010 only at Universal Orlando Resort, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter will feature multiple themed attractions, shops and a restaurant.
