I'm sure it's going to be busy. How early can you call for reservations?

Just so everyone knows.. There will be no reservations for the 3 Broomsticks restaurant.

Breakast - Table Service - Only those with the Harry Potter package can make a reservations for breakfast at the 3 Broomsticks. All others will get a table on a first come, first served basis

Lunch - Counter service only

Dinner - Counter service only

This was the information I received from IOA dining reservations.

Should I..?

I'm going down to Disney world on June 23rd. Were staying a couple days and have decided to have one day off from the parks. On that day should I go over to Universal. No one else in my party wants to go (not big Harry Potter fans). So I will be alone. . I know it will be busy. What do you think?

In my eyes (but I haven't seen the menu either), a traditional British breakfast consists of: Sausage, Bacon, Eggs, Black Pudding, Grilled Tomatoes, Beans and sometimes Fried Bread...

Black pudding along with haggis is the food of gods.

Here is a link to making the pudding

Black pudding is horrible! I normally ask for extra bacon/sausage to replace all the stuff I don't like on a cooked breakfast.

Have any UK people seen the Virgin package? If you book Universal tickets through them and turn up at 07.30 at Mythos then you too can get early access to WWOHP. I'm not entirely sure how this works or accurate it is, as it was printed in January.

I really wish I hadn't been so curious about black pudding-some things I really don't want to know.

Isn't that what you guys call a civilized breakfast?

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!
Thank you ALL for the replies, and help! Also thanks to the poster who posted the one day-two park ticket info! ALL very helpful for this HP-loving muggle!
