Haha! And yet, I am dying to actually book at you fictional hotel!

Just a reminder...some companies, including other message boards are not to be mentioned on the DIS...hence the company name was starred out. There are reasons for this so the two posts mentioning another message board have been deleted. Again...there are reasons for this.

I'm going to Orlando next March and I know the new area is unlikely to be open but the HP area at IOA shouldn't be affected right? As a big HP fan I'm slightly worried haha.

It shouldn't be...I can't imagine why it would.

If you're talking about HP2 at the Studios next summer, no one really knows for sure yet.

Have you heard anything more about expected dates? I'll be there Oct 2014 too. The last time I was in US/IoA it was 2007 and I was sad... so I'm sure just experiencing WWoHP will be exciting as is! But I'd love for Diagon Alley!

Pictures have to be posted on a photo sharing website like Photobucket. We have a picture of the day thread so post them there. I've posted several I've taken.
