All Aboard: A Journey On The Hogwarts Express with Oliver and James Phelps Recap

James and Oliver Phelps Rides The Hogwarts Express at Universal Orlando
Today is Universal Orlando Resort's second day of previewing their latest expansion Diagon Alley. The more we see of this theme park we can confirm that this is much more than an expansion but an entire new land inspired by Harry Potter.

The webcast today featured online by Universal Orlando Resort starred the Phelps brothers James and Oliver giving us an exclusive look at the Hogwarts Express attraction.

James and Oliver Phelps arrived at Hogsmeade Station, apologizing for being a little late as they were enjoying some butterbeers. Together they waited as the station as the Hogwarts Express came into view.

Once inside the compartment of the train, we were treated to a video playback of how the ride will work when guests are officially on board. They noted that know gingers were harmed in the making of the video. Playing on the window behind them as a collection of clips including a passing of Malfoy Manor and The Knight Bus squeezing through Modern London.

Bonnie Wright and Domhnall Gleeson, who play Ginny and Bill Weasley, were seen at the Platform 9 3/4 station waiting for their cinematic siblings to join them. The Phelps brothers were shown intermittently in the compartment talking about the feel of the train as it moves on its track just like the ones in Europe as well as the dynamics of the graphics that play while they were riding.

Eventually the Phelps brothers met with Wright and Gleeson until they came across Matthew Lewis standing in the middle of their set looking through a script. Lewis thought this was his day for a webcast, but he was surely mistaken (it's tomorrow). Lewis joked that they were saving the best for last and that we make sure to catch himself, Tom Felton, and Alan Gilmore on the superior webcast tomorrow. The Phelps brothers thanked us for joining them for the webcast before the broadcast ended.

The webcasts are still available for viewing online as of now - for those who wish to watch!
