Looks as though industry insiders at the Pow Wow currently in town have been given a sneak peak of the interior of Forbidden Journey, albeit just the queueing area, not the ride itself.

More Harry Potter details emerge as Universal welcomes Pow Wow crowd (http://blogs.orlandosentinel.com/features_orlando/2010/05/more-harry-potter-details-emerge-as-universal-welcomes-pow-wow-crowd.html)

This place is going to be mint! The theming sounds amazing!! I saw a clip of people describing it, and they said that inside their Olivanders wand box there was actually dust placed there. When the theming is THAT extensive, you know it is something very special! :thumbsup2

Every piece of news that comes out of WWoHP makes it more exciting.
Another who is looking forward to this update at Universal.

Thought I read that the queue line for Forbidden Journey can handle 7 hour long queues :scared1:

Yikes!! Good job we'll have FOTL passes!

It does like it is going to be something pretty spectacular.
I'm another one that can only look forward to others pics for now - but am still looking forward to checking it out myself sometime in the not too distant future

I heard they don't work in WWoHP?

From what we've heard so far, FOTL will only be valid for use once (per day) on Forbidden Journey. To be honest I'm kinda glad since Express really adds significantly to the queue time of the regular queue! Which is where we'll be! Have to shoot over there first thing.

So here's the thing.

We go to Florida 22nd Oct to 5th Nov.

We are staying onsite at Disney but want a day trip to Universal

I just looked at a Harry Potter Package:

Econo Lodge Inn & Suites
Room # 1- 4 Adults

* CityWalk Party Pass November 01
* Commemorative Ticket - Not valid for admission November 01
* Early Park Admission to Islands of Adventure November 01
* Scheduled Shuttle to Universal Orlando Theme Parks November 01
* Three Broomsticks Breakfast-Reservations Required November 01

1-Day Base Ticket $336.56
Hotel Base Price (includes certain taxes and services) $49.84

Total Price $386.40 (Price Per Person $96.60)

I could just buy 4 X one-day tickets for $80 each or is it worth paying the extra $64 and getting the early admission to IoA and Breakfast (obvioulsy we would not use the hotel room)

We could always buy the normal tickets with an express pass but i don't think these can be used on the Harry Potter attractions so maybe the wizard package and extra hour is good idea?

It really depends on what you prefer.

With the package it works out cheaper than buying each of you an express pass plus (which is $20 each for that period) plus you get breakfast, although you only get the extra hour.

With express pass plus they haven't said whether it will include FJ yet, although it will include Dragon Challenge and Flight of the Hippogriff. It may therefore save you more than an hour, but you don't get the free meal and ticket.

Perhaps wait and see at grand opening if the express pass plus include FJ?
