Unless you're going on or after June 18 or you can make a meal out of desserts...you can forget eating exclusively at WWOHP. The 3 Broomsticks isn't serving any meals until then except for the breakfast package. I know this because I asked one of the TMs who worked there when we were let in to look around...I really wanted those fish & chips on the menu.

My mistake, my letter says 8-9. I came up with the 2 hours based on what concierge was telling me. I think (hope) they are putting 1 just to cover their a$@. I'm still not quiet sure but it sounds like our package was simply combined with those staying at the pricey on site resorts as well. Everyone I've talked to however says it's been a minimum of 2 for FJ with intermittent delays.

My 3B reservation is actually at 9 so if it did close at 9 so if rides actually shut down at 9, I just plan on running to 3B.

I'm going June 20th to WWOHP so I'll be able to eat there for meals! Definitely want to have a meal at the Three Broomsticks, get butterbeer/pumpkin juice, and a cauldron cake/pumpkin pastie. Then might get some candy too..... HOW WERE THE HARRY POTTER CHARACTERS SKINNY!? JK Rowling always giving them so many sweets. *jealous*

My guess is that when the area is open to the public (for soft opening), Three Broomsticks will be open for lunch hours (after the breakfast for package holders is served)

I doubt it since I specifically asked when it would be open for lunch and the TM said not until after the Grand Opening.

I think that just may be their standard answer. I find it hard to believe that the first day Three Broomsticks will be in full operational mode with their normal menu will be on Grand Opening that. Doesn't make sense to me.

It sounds like they simply don't know until the day of and even then there is confusion.

Also for what it's worth, I'm absolutely willing to give this hour of exclusivity thing a shot with an open attitude. However 60 minutes to wait in line for the castle when I only have a guaranteed 60 minutes to ride?! Kinda defeats the purpose...

The TM said it didn't make much sense to her either and she wished they would open before then so they would be prepared for the Grand Opening. I think they are crazy if they do wait till then. but I also think they were crazy for waiting as long as they did to soft open FJ.

Plan to be there early and you should be able to get on in considerably less time than 60 minutes. If you want to re-ride the line will get longer, but apparently it was a walk-on by the end of the preview period today! Doubt we'll ever see that again!

I can see FJ just phyically not be ready to open but Three Broomsticks? They kept the kitchen from Enchanted Oak, so how difficult can it be?

Exactly! As long as it is running early and you are towards the front of the line to get in, your first ride will have little or no wait. The next one will be longer (for us #2 was 35 mins. today) because the crowd density has increased. After that I guess people were tired of it because there was literally no wait other than the time it took us to talk through the castle. The only thing that will gum up the works is if it is not operational first thing in the morning (which was our problem yesterday).
