Oh, reading some of this stuff I'm scared I'll be too chicken to ride FJ. It sounds more and more like a roller coaster every day...

Yeah I'm a little nervous about riding it, although since I do like coasters I'm not so worried about the movements, but the thought of AA aragog and the dragon etc. are pretty nervy!

Did you take that to mean that FJ wouldn't be open for the "preview" and that they would wait until the grand opening for FJ to be up and running?

In terms of themeing, are you all looking forward to eating at The Great Hall or Three Broomsticks? I was just looking at the menu's. Both would work just fine for our family. Somehow the Great Hall themeing seems more appealing. Are you all picking one or the other (and why), or doing both?

The Great Hall? I haven't heard about this - just the Three Broomsticks. Where are you looking at menus? Can I have a link?

There is no Great Hall as a restaurant. The Three Broomsticks is the only eatery in the Wizarding World.

So embarrasing! LOL I googled Three Broomsticks menu and it pulled up a list of places to eat (including pretzel stands, icecream kiosks) etc and I figured it was Universal's whole listing. Apparently it was some imaginary theme park online!! Sorry! Feeling like an idiot right now...

Too funny. Someone else posted something like that too, so you're not the only one!!!

I am wondering the same thing....we do not have a "package" but a room only ressie that *appears* to qualify us entry to WWOHP in early June. Logically, I cannot imagine not doing soft openings, practice runs etc of FJ prior ot the GO...that would just be insanity, however, I agree with the others who have mentioned perhaps JK Rowling has some pretty specific thoughts on how this is all going to occur and if she says no pictures, no FJ until 6/18...then there will be no pictures and no FJ until 6/18. However, the reports of other celebs from the movie being there this week, to me, means they are gonna ride FJ, and pictures are going to be taken. The next week should be pretty informative, I think. ( thi it is probably wishful thinking)

I did find this Three Broomsticks menu and review of the food...hoping it's legit. Otherwise, I may have to just slink away... Or maybe it's old news and I should just go back only reading this thread!

We too will be there in ealy June with room only- not a package. I am hoping that even if we can't ride FJ that we will be able to go thru the line and see all the rest. But, it goes without saying that I am hoping to get to do it all! And FJ may be a robocoaster, not a rollercoaster, but it is surely a thrill ride!

I'd tend to agree with you -- I feel that the "having to save some things until the grand opening" was more a public relations line than anything else so they wouldn't get all kinds of questions about it. I'd be very surprised if package holders as well as the general public don't get to soft open Forbidden Journey starting end of next week.
