I was told by a Universal rep to not book the original May 28 package b/c I'm a passholder. So, I just booked a regular room off-site since I was going down that weekend anyway. Now I'm a little upset that I might not get to see the HP stuff and that's the only weekend I can get down there for quite awhile. I hope they do some soft openings or something or people are going to be mad that weekend.

They're going to have to at LEAST soft open it with a decent amount of time before official opening - I'd be surprised if you weren't fine, especially so close to the "grand" opening!

Actually- now that I am starting to chill- I am remembering that when I made our reservations, that I was told that our room key would enable us to ride the FJ once (FOTL) per day. So hopefully that means that the WWoHP will be open to others not reserving the HP package......right?....keeping all ten fingers crossed.....

This is what I was told by the reservationist as well...Everyone with a room key would be allowed to use express access once per day for FJ. The Dragon Challenge and FotH would be unlimited.

We leave Florida on June 18th and had planned to go to Universal a few days before this date. My family has been looking forward to the Harry Potter area for months. I hope that we get to see it. If people have been told that their room keys give them access to once a day for the Forbidden Journey does anyone think that FOTL tickets will offer the same thing?

# Storyline: As you venture through Hogwarts, you meet Harry, Ron and Hermione, who convince you to skip a planned lecture and follow them. Upon taking their advice you travel by Floo powder, and begin your adventure as you soar over Hogwarts, narrowly escape a dragon attack, have a close encounter with the Whomping Willow, get pulled into a Quidditch match and more.
# First-ever combination of advanced robotic ride system technology with innovative, immersive filmmaking
# Award-winning composer John Williams oversaw the creation of the attraction's score
# The queue includes the following Harry Potter book and film elements: Headmaster Dumbledore's office, Defence Against the Dark Arts classroom, Gryffindor common room, Room of Requirement, and the greenhouse; talking portraits including the Fat Lady and the never-before-seen four founders: Godric Gryffindor, Salazar Slytherin, Helga Hufflepuff and Rowena Ravenclaw; the Sorting Hat, the One-Eyed Witch statue and the Mirror of Erised
# Duration of ride: The full attraction experience, including the queue, takes about an hour
# Number of scenes in the attraction: 12
# Characters (featuring Harry Potter film talent): Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Albus Dumbledore, Rubeus Hagrid and Draco Malfoy
# You may also catch a glimpse of Fred and George Weasley, Ginny Weasley and Neville Longbottom
Wow! I can't wait!

All of the sites and previews look amazing.....
We are heading to Universal on June 9th for three days only. We only get down there every few years so here is to hoping that we can see FJ. I want to see everything!
