ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 13 (UPI) -- The cast and crew of the Harry Potter films met in Orlando, Fla., to promote the latest DVD release and make suggestions for the movie-inspired theme park.

Universal Orlando's Wizarding World of Harry Potter, which has been open for 18 months, was host to a sort of "wrap party" and home video promotion for the last film in the saga this weekend, the Orlando Sentinel reported Saturday.

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" was released Friday, nearly 10 years to the day after the first film, "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," opened in theaters.

Some of the cast and crew had a few ideas for new attractions at the theme park.

"How about a Gringott's cart ride?" suggested Warwick Davis, who played Professor Flitwick at Hogwarts and Griphook, a goblin banker. "Then I could come and work at the park and run it."

"I'd love to go back to that wonderful cave -- spectacular and spooky, where Voldemort has hidden one of his horcruxes -- that we had in 'Half-Blood Prince,'" David Yates, director of the final four films, told the newspaper. "The Hall of Prophecies is also a wonderful environment. Maybe people could have their future predicted."
