    Does anyone know if they will be able to decorate the queue in Hogwarts? Perhaps that is more than to be expected but I was just wondering.

    The queue is arguably the attraction.

    The general methodology is that common areas and facades not linked directly to the story of an attraction get decor.

    So with Hogwarts getting the exterior lights and such, it's sort of up in the air. I will say - don't expect anything people could steal from within arm's reach. Ornaments are wired into place and people still steal them off the trees and the garlands.

    My barn owl tells me the ministry was hard at work last night.

    Sure looks like a projection system to me! Is that going on the end of the Archway towards Jurassic?

    Is that inner support on a spindle? Perhaps we see owls during the day and they rotate it at night to enable the projectors?

    I love how visually quirky it is.

    The scale just looks awkward and wrong in the pics, but i guess when the support is revealed it could make sense - we shall see.

    I think the support will be stonework with a buttress so it is as quirky as the rest of Hogsmeade. Probably have a few of the doors pop open to let the projectors shoot when it is time. Don't know how serviceable it is, didn't look like there is access from the bottom. Maybe the top comes off. or a whole side swings open.

    Right now it just looks too big - like they're housing golden eagles not barn owls.

    Come to think of it, giant muppet owl figure at the train station would fit perfectly in there.

    Edit: It's a muppet, I don't care what anyone else says.

    Clearly those cases belong to the popular British steak sauce brand.
