Just as narrow and small or not, I cannot wait to see the details and little things to look at. And that dragon atop the bank ride, that is something I really want to see, well, and everything! We will be back next year.

Most definitely cannot wait! As soon as I saw escape from Gringotts translated on film I thought this would make a wicked ride!

I know that Rowling had some huge deal with Coke and a reading promotion program, so I didn't realize she was so anti-Coke products.

I assume that we won't see any Coke products in the new area either.
I was wary about pumpkin juice. Is that any good?

Speaking of Harry Potter how do people like the Three Broomstricks food? I went for atmosphere but I felt the cuisine lacking. Hoping Leaky Cauldron will be improved picky eater

I don't know~ the pumpkin juice we had was not thick. I tasted like spiced apple juice. The bottle is really cool! Saved mine as a souvenir. Definitely worth getting, if not just for the bottle, even if you don't drink it all.

That's why I always recommend Thunder Falls Terrace for counter service instead of 3B.

Same here. I quite enjoyed it but prefer butterbeer.

The single biggest issue with this expansion is going to be the fact that there is absolutely no way that universal is going to accurately determine just how overwhelming the traffic/lines/waits for the hog warts express are going to be. That aspect of this is going to be awesome, but a cluster.... As well. Mainly because they'll be scanning tickets, there's the stroller issue....

But most likely they're also not smart enough to realize that there will be a ton of people who will use that a the main access between parks, since the trek between from potter to potter is so far.

If they were smart, they'd have a walking path and back gate exit/entry there too, for people who want to bypass the train.

But that train is gonna be a pain.

It's not a short walk from the back side their either.... not to mention that with all the backstage traffic it wouldn't be a very pedestrian friendly hike.

I fell in love with DLR, whats not to love. Fantasyland, Toontown, Nemo and so much more. Both parks and DTD are full of little Disney touches that make it truly Walt's park. Mickey Pretzels, Mickey Gingerbreads, Mickey pancaks. Yummy. It is truly th

Don't know, but as the shrunken head in prisoner of azkaban said "If you have the pea soup, make sure you eat it before it eats you."
