I saw children wearing cloaks that they had bought there.

No rules against it. As long as nobody is pretending to be the characters/employees and not taking pictures with other guests, it's fine.

What day to go to IOA and WWoHP?

We are going to WDW in March and have decided to add two days at IOA and US. We are planning on going on a Sunday and Monday and have bought the Universal Unlimited Express pass for both days. I'm trying to decide what park to go to on what day. Several in our group really want to take in WWoHP. Which day would be best for it? Thanks for any help and suggestions you may have!

Sunday is likely better than Monday for WWoHP. In the future, know that you can purchase the Express passes in the park once you've had a chance to see the crowds for yourself and judge their worth.

I am planning a trip for sometime near the end of August. I am wondering how much spending money to bring for souvenirs and food. I don't want t say no to getting something just because I want to get something else. I will definitely be buying a few shirts and a wand, but on average how much should I bring? How much have you guys spent on souvenirs there? Thanks!

I would say it's a hard place to say no. Wands are about $30 I think, shirts 20+, we brought home the butter beer souvenier mug ($9-10), pigmy puffs for the kids (another $15 or so...). Honeyduke's is a hard place to leave without a bagful, $10 for a chocolate frog...My kids are already saving up their allowances, 6 months out.

Ok, so 500-1000 should be more than enough?

That's definitely enough. People actually spend $1,000 on souvenirs on trips?!

Lol I never have. This is my first trip where I am old enough to have to save my own spending money so I am not sure.

Check out the online store to picture want you want and around how much you want to spend. I don't think they have everything but will help you a lot. http://www.universalorlando.com/Merc...ndisehome.aspx We bought my sister a wand ($31) and a chocolate frog ($10). We eat breakfast at the Three Broomsticks ($15) including a beverage. Lunch is around the same price.

Is breakfast at the Three Broomsticks for everyone now, or still just for special packages? (We won't be at a Universal hotel, we've got two weeks, so we'll be enjoying a villa.)

It will be hard not to buy everything. My boys each want a new wand. They currently have Harry's wand. I am sure they will find other things they will want. We will have to get a few things from Honeyduke's. Then I will get an ornament & maybe a shirt for myself. We will try butterbeer & pumpkin juice, as well as eat at 3 Broomsticks.
