I saw the Mugglenet article too. At first I was really excited, but then I noticed that Disney is charging Easter pricing on those days as Easter Sunday is a few days after the 26th. I'm not too familiar on Universal price seasons/ hours schedules, but it seems to me that the increased prices and hours are simply for Easter.

That's probably the reason...I really don't think Harry Potter will be ready to go by March/April.

For those of you looking for an awesome view of Hogwarts/great photo op, follow these steps:

-Follow the path to Dueling Dragons.
-Go up the exit of DD
-When the construction wall ends, you'll be facing a vine covered wall
-Turn around
-Ooh and ahh and take pics

Harry Potter Construction update 12-31-09






This is the third construction update of the Wonderful Wizzarding World of Harry Potter which is set to open sometime in spring of 2010. As you can see, Hogsmead is coming along nicely as is Hogwart's Castle. That's where the new "secret indoor ride" is going to be built. The speculation is that it's going to be a new mobile Robocoaster arm. Just think of it as a Spiderman type ride style with a robotic arm with seats attached to the end. Also the work has extended to the queing area for the Dueling Dragons, which will soon to be renamed "Dragons Challenge". The walls extend to the station as well, but it was too dark to film in the station.

I just moved a reservation to the end of March due to the concert series. They expect it to be open by then, but Express won't be available.
