A lot of blue shirts around the area. Is that a good sign for soft opening?

There were hundreds of people waiting outside Diagon today, pretty large crowd. They stayed most of the evening too. I guess there were rumors that the private party for tonight was cancelled, and they had seriously considered doing a soft.

If you jump the fence and run in you will get a free ride to orlando pd station. Not exactly Hogwarts Express but might be exciting.

We were talking to one of the crowd control people and he stated there was security hidden behind pillars of kings cross. You break that line and it will be a quick pile on lol

Any luck yet?! Since it is July now, I thought chances for soft opening would be better!
