    Access to the room in question from Carkitt is House Elf Placement Agency.

    A take home house Elf would be great...I already don't wear socks anywhere

    Could be the next "thing" Universal attempts...First house elfs, then Pokemon

    a theme park promoting "slavery" sounds extremely problematic on multiple levels

    Here’s the side of Carkitt that is the “back”of Ollivanders. The House Elf Placement Agency is on the far left (far right in the bottom picture). It will be nice to have an actual shop on that side.

    Isn't there a passage door there for cast? Seems I have seen traffic through that area.

    I've heard Globus Mundi has been postponed. With all the construction projects going on and the number of contractors still working on hurricane projects, the costs skyrocketed so they have put things on hold for now. In the mean time all the merchandise is already available in the other stores.

    Just bringing this up, Attractions Magazine seemed to mention on Josh Solomon's post on Twitter of the Mummy lockers, that they heard of Gringotts possibly getting a locker update.

    It’ll be interesting to see where they get the extra real estate from. If I remember the lockers correctly, they’ll have to eat into the gift shop to make more room. Maybe there’s a backstage room (or child swap?) they could use instead

    Yea, maybe they could go deeper and take up a little backstage. I wouldn’t want to lose any gift shop.

    Ditto. That gift shop is tight on space as it is, especially with Gringott's emptying into it.

    Rebuild the area including the over built photos location.

    True, lot of wasted space in there.

    There's not really any room to expand backstage. The lockers are cornered in between the photo area, the queue, the outside, and the gift shop. The only expansion room would be getting rid of the photo area.

    maybe they just mean that the finger print lockers will one day be replaced with the ticket scan lockers?

    Saw this on a funny video account I follow and while I was laughing a little, I was a little mad. It takes a lot of work to have those things running and it reallly shows you how little the GP cares about the work that goes into making something nice. Not the first time I’ve seen this happen in the parks.
