My boys are big suite life on deck fans. They were watching an episode and they were making a News broadcast. At one point London draped a green fabric around herself they only thing you saw was her head floating. It reminded me of Harry & his invisability cloak. I was so excited I was pointing it out to the kids and they thought it was really cool. Then of course I started thinking and I thought wouldn't it be cool to have something like it at WWOHP for a cool photo op.

That's what I'm doing. I have Tuesday as a free day. If they're doing general soft opening I'll head to US, if not I'll stay at WDW that day.

I am a little freaked and kinda aggravated! I was really dying to do the wand experience and now that looks near impossible. Why, if people are willing to wait 7 hours in line for a ride, can't they have a line for people wanting to do that for the wands. Its really disappointing!

I am a little freaked about the Grand Opening. We bought the HP package thru Universal thinking the GO would be May 28th, but lo and behold, the GO is the 18th, which is our 1st day there. Its my understanding that people wont be able to get into the WWOHP until late in the afternoon? Why in the world are we allowed into the park an hour early then. I know its the whole park, but I though the incentive to the package deal was an hour early so we could enjoy WWOHP without lines as long as regular times.

I am a huge HP fan and am even a member of an adult only fan club here in Ohio, so I am super excited, but also super nervous. I wish my plane tickets were refundable and I would change to a later date.

I hope they let people into the park to atlease see JK Rowling. I know I can't meet her, but to see her and Maybe Hopefully hear her reada passage would be a dream come true!

Hello Everyone, I was able to tour the WWoHP as part of a press tour led by the creative team for the attraction: Alan Gilmore (art director) and Paul Daurio (show producer). We were asked to hold our articles until Universal gave us the OK to release them. We've gotten that OK, and you can find it on our website.

I tried to include lots of details including the lunch/dinner menu at Three Broomsticks.

EXCELLENT walkthrough...TY TY

As for the ride, it sounds like the one in EPCOT, Sum of all Thrills...some may get a bit claustraphobic

I don't think the reviewer actually rode the ride but was just talking about the test seats.

If the ride is going to have us merely with screens around our faces, there would be no need for such a large ride building or such hype for that matter.

Does anyone have any info on the FJ and how it will fit larger sized people? Will this be a problem?

Sweet!!!!!! Awesome review!

What do you think a good touring order would be for this? Right now, I'm thinking....Forbidden Journey, BATHROOM!, Three Broomsticks/Hogs Head, Dueling Dragons, Flight of the Hippogriff, then more shopping.

I have a feeling realistically, it'll go: FJ, bathroom/food, one more ride (will have to pick) and then shopping. Might only get to FJ and not any other rides...but FJ will be worth it!

If you want to do Ollivander's I'd get there early too - sounds like there will be quite the lines to get in there!
