Same here. They let you book breakfast in Harry Potter land for the "Harry Potter Package" starting 5/28. I can not believe they will have the opening after they are advertising this Harry Potter package with early entry and which includes breakfast at the Three Broomsticks starting on 5/28. You can reserve breakfast inside the WWHP.

Lots of people are confusing the opening with the Grand Opening. The Grand Opening will be Rowling cutting the ribbon. I think most people will want to stay clear of that media frenzy.

I was hoping it would open in May and just maybe we would be there for a soft opening in April. But, it doesn't look that way.

Yes, I would prefer to not be there then too, but of course, that IS when we are there! But my 11 year old is thrilled and thinks it will be "way cool". At least we check in on the 15th, so will have a chance to go to the parks before all the media circus starts. . .

There is a possibility of that. Since it is not yet noon of 3/25/10, ALL DATES ARE SPECULATION ONLY.

Tomorrow at noon is when the Official Date will be Announced. If it is 6/18, so be it. If it is a different date, so be it.

This will be our first time going to Universal. How do you book breakfast in Harry Potter's World and how far in advance can you book?

Cool Soft opening question

My girlfriend and I have book our trip for May 22 through the 27th. Is there any chance that the soft opening might occur before then or should we cancel our trip plans

Is there any chance? Yup, there certainly is (and probably a good chance at that!).

But none of us can tell you for sure. The announcement tomorrow might say something about the packages starting on May 28th but it may not, so keep watching out for info and for details on when soft openings are reported to have started. My instinct is you'll be fine then (and probably earlier than that too!), but it's up to you whether you want to take the risk or re-book for when it's "guaranteed" to be operational.

I was at a AAA office last week purchasing park tickets for our June 2-7 stay. The manager seemed more than confident that WWOHP would be open then, in fact, according to her rep, it would be open by the first week in May...tomorrow will tell. Fingers crossed!

What I don't understand is that they are advertising "SPRING 2010". I always thought that SUMMER began at Memorial Day Weekend (not official 1st day of summer but start of summer vacations).
That's why I find it strange that the opening is in "Summer Season".

"official" is the key here


And who knows, it may be soft -- full opening in spring.

There is lots of spring left.
