They have a variety of restraunts and souvenier shops themed to the island they are in. In 2010, Islands of Adventure is planning on adding another island to the bunch. It is planning on adding the "Wizarding World of Harry Potter." Its is said to be "a theme park within a theme park." It will have a new state of the art ride and will had the village of hogsmade, the forbidden forest, and hogwarts castle. It is said that you will be able to enter hogwarts castle and J.K.
