Right, that's pretty much a given, but for the Forbidden Journey ride...

...unless the broom riding is part of that

So, we have never been to Universal or IoA before (our DDs are now 7 and 1 and we have stayed with the tot stuff more) but this August we will go to WDW with my BIL and two of his kids, DS10 and DD8. HP might appeal to them but I am not sure there is anything for DD1 - or it would just be a hard day if we dragged her along. Perhaps if they are interested, I should stay behind with the baby. Just wondering

I don't follow US too closely - what was the HRRR fiasco that people keep referring to?

That it was opened before it should have been and subsequently there were lots of break downs and huge lines.

The closest we have come to talking to an "insider" was when we did the HHN day tour. Our guide sounded pretty confident that it would be open by March. I hope he's right because we have relatives coming over from England and that would be super impressive for them. Personally I don't care when it opens, we'll have a great visit either way.

Rip Ride Rocket has had problems but really, they could then say that Test Track in Epcot is also a fiasco as it breaks down All the time.

Personally I'd be surprised if it's open in March, but given that I'm there from 3/2 to 3/17 even the wild rumor that it might be gives me a bit of hope.
