Universal Orlando expansion?

So here's what I've heard and confirmed online by other sources:

- New monorail system being built called the Hogwarts Express connecting the two parks

- Harry Potter expansion including new roller coaster(s)

- Simpsons area expansion including Moe's Tavern

Does anyone have any detailed information about any of this? Look forward to your replies.

I don't believe any of the Simpsons stuff. Screamscape has a overlay map claiming they want to put a dark ride in this spot where there is currently a walkway. In that same space they'd be lucky to fit a Miler kiddie coaster.

Harry Potter is going to have a train, not a monorail.

Revised: Apparently, they want to be a flat ride in that spot and that would work in the given space.

I got the information from a fellow employee whose roommate is an engineer at Universal Orlando but he couldn't say too much. So it's a very good source and I don't think it has broke ground yet for that because it is still in the designing stages. They are working on finishing Transformers and the Harry Potter expansion first I know for sure.

I would only believe your source if it came from the "Dippin Dots" guy.
