Universal Orlando's The Wizarding World of Harry Potter recently launched its interactive website, and while we have more details about the sweet theme park, we still don't know when it's opening. "Spring 2010" is not definitive enough for impatient Muggles. But here's what we do know:

Hogwarts Castle is considered a ride. Within the castle, park guests will get to experience the castle through a ride called Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, which takes you through iconic locations such as Dumbledore's office, Gryffindor common room and more using "state-of-the-art" technology.

There are two roller coasters. Depending on whether you're a thrill-seeker or just a ride-lover, there's something here for you. Dragon Challenge is a high-speed roller coaster (actually, two), and Flight of the Hippogriff is a more family-oriented coaster that your little sis won't freak out on.

There's one restaurant called Three Broomsticks. Here you'll be able to enjoy a pint of Butterbeer or pumpkin juice, nosh on fish and chips or munch on other tavern fare. There are plenty of amazing desserts, too!

There's plenty of shopping here. If you want to walk away with a souvenir, you'll have five different places to spend your money. The theme park will house Dervish and Banges, Filches Emporium of Confiscated Goods, Honeydukes for sweets, Ollivanders wand shop, the Owl Post and Zonko's the joke shop.

Tickets are now available. Although we don't know the exact opening date for the theme park, tickets and vacation packages are available for purchase online. This has to mean that it's going to open its doors soon, or a lot of people will be disappointed. Keep checking back at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter website to find out when the grand opening is!
