Hey, that's good to know...a lot more exciting than the misinformation spreading at work. Thanks! Might be a step up from ole Cypress Gardens and their southern belles!

I usually go to Disney and not move from the property. However, with the opening of HP I am taking 2 days out of my 10 to do IOA and US. I haven't been to either in over 5 years and I am a HUGE HP fan. I will be using Mears from POP for the first time, hope it works out ok.

We will be heading to Universal to see Harry Potter during our trip in July. I am taking two days that I normally would be seeing my favorite Mouse and using them to see "my" Harry . I shortened my stay at CSR and staying closer to Universal for those two days as well, since we are on a dining plan at WDW, couldn't justify staying there with the cost when we won't even be at the parks.

I would like to go eventually, but for our next trip (in April) 1) it is planned already and 2) I'm not sure the HP section will be open by then anyway. We talked with our friends about doing a F&W/HP trip in October, but its not in stone.

We used Mears, worked great but cab was better because we did not depend on schedule. Just thought you might want to know.

I began reading the Harry Potter books (and watching the movies) this year in preparation for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

I have high expectations for the new land, and fully anticipate Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey to be a game changer when it comes to theme park attractions.

We'll be spending an entire week at Universal (also doing seaworld). We were thinking about it even before HP was announced, though. My boys are excited about doing Universal, and I'm looking forward to a relaxing trip hanging out with dd.

I'll wait until it has been open for a while--plan to go in December for a day or two to check it out. I've added one day to my trip, so it won't take time away from Disney.

If the crowds are manageable, we will swing over for a day before we check into WDW. We are in Cocoa with family for a week before our WDW vacation kicks off...

When we go to WDW we always stay on property and it's at least a week stay...We have always taken one full day to do Universal IOA! We do hope Harry will be open for our next trip, but if not we will probably still taxi over to enjoy some of the great attractions they offer!

On our last big WDW trip, we spent a few days at Universal. We're doing the same this trip. I hope it's open by the time we go, though.
