Still praying for an Easter opening, so when we get there 2 weeks later, it will definitely be open.

Is it Thursday yet? The suspense is killing me

We've had reservations at HRH since January in anticipation of WWOHP opening. Keeping my fingers & toes crossed for an opening on or before our trip May 19- 24, though from all indications it will probably be May 28.

Hang in there everyone, the wait is almost over.

Rode Dragons yesterday for the first time since the refurb. Even with construction walls lining most of the queue, it's pretty amazing walking in the shadow of Hogsmeade. Really looks like they nailed it--my only concern right now is capacity issues.

Not sure if this has been posted before. It is a new picture from the media site and its heading is Room of Requirement - Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey.



I suspect this is something we will encounter in the ride!

Here is the link to the page if anyone wants the hi def picture. http://media.universalorlando.com/ha...es.php?item=52

We'll be there this weekend. Oh, it looks ready to go. Not holding out much hope though. At the very least, we're thrilled that Dueling Dragons is open.

Is this going to be a thrill ride? Is there a comparison to any other rides? Sorry, I did a search but it didn't provide an answer.

We think it will be similar in intensity to the Mummy but no one is quite sure.

If you click on this link http://media.universalorlando.com/ha...es.php?item=52 and then click on caption, it says this,

Room of Requirement - Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey
On Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey – the marquee attraction of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – guests will journey through iconic locations straight from the films, such as the Room of Requirement. This amazingly detailed scene is where guests board the groundbreaking ride and are drawn into the excitement and chaos of Harry’s life. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – the only place in the world where the stories of Harry Potter will come to life – grand opens on June 18.

Just checked it again, it's gone. Looks like another accidental (day) early leak. The big news leaked there is that date, June 18th. 2 days before the official end of spring on the 21st / summer solstice.
