I have to agree! The version of Harry Ramsdens in Epcot is shocking! If I were Universal, I'd just give up and not even attempt to try produce a decent chips and fish meal!

I didn't know that! I'll have to keep an eye out on The Telegraph now to keep me updated

I think I am now more excited about WWoHP then I am going to Disney! I can't wait to shop, go to Olivander's, eat at the 3 broomsticks. I expect people to post lots of pictures if they get to go before I do in September.

Forgive me as I've hopped and skipped through 45 pages of this thread, but didn't I read somewhere that part of the area woudl be open in December?
Did it not end up opening? Or did I miss posts of people reporting back?

I think that was pure speculation, it did not happen. In fact, since Hogwarts looks completed much faster than Hogsmeade village, I don't think it was ever actually considered.

Actually it was. When the announcement first broke in 07 they said a portion would be ready in 09, they quickly changed that when Rockit broke ground.
More potter pics here. Some night shots as well as some before/after shots...literally an hour apart. Crews are flying! OH, some Trike Encounter shots for those still hopeful the old girl will return.

So how do you feel about the snow? I am torn and will have to be sold on it. It might look nice on opening, but what a maintenance nightmare. Will all of the characters, shopkeepers etc have to "pretend" that it is winter when they are in character? And, will it be like enslaved Narnia.....always winter but never Christmas!

Wow!!! Being able to see the village take shape is amazing! At first I said it didn't matter to me if WWOHP was open for my end-of-April vacation, but now IT DOES!!!! I am really hoping it will be open!

I just looked at the robocoaster stuff and if thats what the ride will be made out of I won't be going on the ride. That is just not fun for me. Pretty disappointed if thats what it ends up being. I don't have a tolerance for thrills. For me, dinosaur is scary--I've never been to Universal so I can't compare it to rides there but a mix of splash mountain, dinosaur, test track, and Haunted Mansion with Harry Potter bought to incredibly detailed life is what I'm hoping for---anytime the seat belt is that drop down around the shoulder big things I get nervous.
