This looks awesome! I saw in the new video, when they showed the castle it said Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey... is that going to be a ride in the castle?

Cool! Thanks!! Can't wait! Anyone have a good idea when they might release an official date of opening? I want to plan a Nov. Trip, but want to wait for a confirmation just in case

WWOHP is contractually obligated to open by June 30, unless something changes. Universal is saying Spring 2010. There has been no specific opening date announced. November should be very safe.

Sure hopeing it opens before that.After the mud in the face US got on RRR3 I hope they hold to the early spring opening for Potter Harry....
I know 1/2 of June is still spring,but they need to get this up and running ASAP.The ticket pricing can really put mud on them and Disney will love it if they don't!

The castle is really just a show piece for the much, much larger ride building. You won't actually go "inside' the castle you see atop the building. You will enter underneath it.

Rags I'm with you!

I'm shooting for HP being open for Memorial Day weekend also. We hope to go back to Orlando for October also, but I'm hoping it'll be open for our May trip. Still waiting to hear...

I hope it opens before then, too. We are booked for late July, but I think it is in Universal's best interests to open before the summer season gears up. I hope they open by Memorial Day so everyone can enjoy it this summer.

I remember reading a few days ago that you are going to be able to see/walk through the great hall, gryffindor common room, etc.. Will these not be in the castle with the ride in the mountain? If not, where else will these be located? I guess I was assuming that you would get to go through parts of the castle, either as part of the queue (leaving or entering the ride), or as a separate feature reminiscent of the Swiss Family Robinson tree house (only similarity being the ability to tour and look at the features described in the book/movie). Am I way off track here?

I think it would be so cool to go into the castle. Oh well. Still looks awesome.
