Potterly Prediction? A Harry Potter Hotel

Rich Bilbao of the Orlando Business Journal is dreaming of a Harry Potter-themed hotel.

The stars are in alignment, he surmises, given that NBCUniversal, Universal Orlando Resort’s parent company, said it could add more than 10,000 hotel rooms and still make a profit. And a new partnership between Warner Bros. Entertainment and J.K. Rowling that will include a new fantasy film series and the expansion of various Harry Potter activities, digital initiatives, video games, consumer products, and attractions.

The concept makes sense with the opening of Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida expected in 2014. Along with the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Islands of Adventure, fans could revel in a totally immersive experience.
