I can't believe how much has been done since we were there in October! Hoping to plan another October trip this year.

I would think Universal would wait until after the Easter/spring break crowds to open WWoHP. Why? The parks and hotels will already be filled. Open a little later so everyone who comes over the Easter break will want to return sooner. Just my opinion. (And someone coming Easter week.)

I think it would be better to open by Spring break, the more people that see it, the better the word spreads.

Word is going to spread so quickly. Even those people seeing is before it is open are excited.

When it was announced, newspaper, television and radio stations around the world covered the story. It will be big news once again.

I understand the logic in your thinking, but last year I called the Wednesday before Easter to check hotel availability and not only was there plenty of availability, but they were actually giving an AP discount for that weekend. A room at RPR was around $225 or $250 at most, which is pretty unheard of for Easter.

I would bet that they are going to open it the minute it is ready.

News about opening:

My brother informed that he has "Grad Bash" on April 24th, and that they were told they were Pre-opening it for the students there. This might help to get an idea of opening day!

P-pre opening? We're going the middle of May, and I was expecting it to be open for at least a month by then.
