Here's an article from today's paper that I thought I would share:

I'm actually a little concerned about the number of people that are going to be attracted. I am so used to the nice crowd levels and really don't want it to turn into a crazy chaos of Potter fans.

Even though we generally go in off season, I think that off season is going to turn into something we've never quite experienced there before.

I agree that the days of low crowds at Universal are certainly numbered. After WWoHP opens, it's going to be pure insanity all the time...not just at Christmas or during spring break weeks.

So hoping that they announce an opening date this Tuesday.

I am planning a trip to FL based around WWHP as well, and I, too, wonder just how crazy it may get if many are doing the same.

Maybe this has been answered, but I thought I read at one point that Hogwarts would be taller than Cinderella Castle. Anyone know if that is still the plan?
