Has anyone else had this issue?
No. I reserved the day/time I thought I wanted when I booked our package and then I even called back a week later and changed my reservation to a different day.

They could be booked up now though which would make it harder if not impossible to change your day. You could try to call back again in a week or so and see if whoever you talk to then is able to do it. There could be cancellations (or simply a more knowledgeable phone rep).

I highly doubt there will be many cancellations though if you were lucky enough to book a package prior to June 18th. Most people will be hanging on to those reservations for dear life!

I am right there with you. We are HUGE HP fans!! Started reading HP and the SS to my almost 18yr old when he was 7, and when he would fall asleep, I'd keep reading 'cause I couldn't put it down! Six more books and six movies later, I can not wait until we go in early Nov to see how Universal will bring it to life!!! We are all sooo excited!! Half of me wants to hear/read all I can about WWoHP and FJ, and the other half wants the surprize factor. (I'm such a Gemini!!)

I'm confused...
I read in a previous post that the grand opening is June 18..correct?
So after June 18, going to the park and purchasing an ioa day pass will give u admission to wwohp too right? You don't need any sort of special offer or anything?

Good luck with that. And say goodbye to Mickey, I'm betting you wont see him too much after this trip
Anyway, small potter update, this time on the inside of the (Dueling)Dragons Challenge queue. I hope they close it down for more time, and they do something else to it. It looks so....blah! The signs, I hope those arent an indicator.

My son and I are HUGE HP fans but we do not go on coaster, simulator, or thrill rides at all so we would only be going to IOA for HP

Would it be still worth staying on site as we would likely not be going on any of the rides? Would do the que for the new HP ride and then bail out the chicken exit.

So should we stay a night at a Universal hotel or just drive over from our WDW hotel - we will have a rental car. Planning on going in either July or Aug depending on our work schedules.

Thanks!

WDW to Universal Studios and back again

Problem is - no transportation! How do we get from WDW resort to IOA for a day - and back? How much$$ do you think, besides a day pass, and will a day pass even guarantee we see WWOHP before the 18th? I hope that doesn't sound like a stupid question(s)!

Thanks!

LOVE being a Muggle, but LOVE HP's life too!


Three options to getting to US from WDW.

1. The bus, approx $30 pp, but you have to catch it at the TTC I believe, this is a city bus...

2. Taxi - Minimum of $35 EACH WAY (not including tip) unless the driver takes you the loooong way, then it will be more.

3. Mears - the easiest of all. (.mearstransportation.com/)
Depending on how many people you have, you could reserve one of their town cars for like $100 round trip (for everyone).

I have spent more than this with a taxi.. If you go the taxi route, make sure you take some maps and study up on the routes at least a little.. That way you won't get litterally taken for a ride...


Have Fun!

Typo on the Lynx bus?
I think you mean $3 per person each way?
I've read there are three transfers, or two and get on a free shuttle on I drive.
I suppose if you had one or two people, a lot of time, started out first thing in the A.M., this would be the most cost effective.

I wouldn't take Lynx...it takes a long time to get from Disney to Universal and even though it's the cheapest way, you would lose a lot of park time. I was trying to pull up the route map and fare information but that part of the website is down. You can check back at www.golynx.com later and use their planning site. BTW...the Lynx bus is $3.00 per person each way.

Even if the rides aren't open when we get there the last week of April, do you think we might be able to walk around Hogs Meade and see Hogswart also?
