Question

Are you sure about that 7 hour line? Where in the world did you hear that? SCAREY. I can't wait to see it, but are you sure you got reliable information? That sounds insane...... I hope it is never that long when we're there!

I suggest obtaining the extra large size butterbeer to keep you hydrated while waiting. And hopefully there are bathrooms along the way!
Mayvbe it's like the train platform, and you just run into the waill and *poof* you are immediately inside the ride!

7 hours sounds pretty much right to me, I've been a fan of the books since 2000 and I've met some pretty insane people during the past 10 years. They wait for the premieres for like 12 hours+, I'm sure they'll have no problems queuing for the ride!

Word is that it was a promo shoot of some sort.

Promo shoot? I was hoping it was some sort of soft opening.

no kidding!!!!!

can't wait for the trip reports to tell us how they exactly cope with this!
can you imagine trying to leave the line for a potty break & then trying to find your family after that? & all the people in line thinking you are cutting?

My kids want the robes for the Grand Opening. I told them they are made of WOOL. They didn't seem to mind so I added In Florida! In JUNE! Still didn't phase them. I'm not carrying around three wool robes when they get hot and tired. I don't mind if they wear their Harry Potter sets they have worn to movie openings. Just a white shirt, the tie, black shorts/skirts, etc.

Hopefully people won't look that sad during soft openings.

I thought the folks in WWoHP were TMs and their families. Just a guess though.

Wondering why the Universal Orlando website keeps going down. A few times a day it is down for maintenance. A few minutes ago it said it was under construction. Yes, silly me keeps checking every day to see if any new information comes in.

I agree. Everyone was well coiffed. No t-shirts with words or images. Lots of color. A cross section of population with a few ages and ethnicities covered. Looks like a photo shoot to me too.

Thank you =]

I know the Shades of Green bus leaves at 8:25 AM and leaves at 6:30 PM, they also said I could look into something called Mirrors transportation? I want to be there when it opens so I can try and run to the Forbidden Journey so I won't be in the 4-7 hour queue....do you think arriving by opening time would make it so the wait time won't be outrageous?
