The end! I will hopefully post FJ queue photos tomorrow in the spoiler thread! :]

Touring Strategy?

Has anyone worked out a touring strategy? We will be at the WWoHP on Sunday, June 27. I have purchased Express passes, but they will not be available for Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey. Should we go straight there after the park opens, or should we do the roller coasters first, then get in line? Any advice would be appreciated!

Go to Harry ASAP and ride Forbidden Journey first if Express is not operational (it probably will be for the other two rides). FJ and Ollivanders are probably the only two things that will get really, really bad lines (and you might not even want to do Ollivanders). You'll want to do FJ's full queue once anyway before using express because it's so cool. If you want to ride it again, do the single riders line.

Thanks. My thoughts, too.

I really enjoyed the webcast of the premiere last night, especially the fireworks. They looked cool on the small screen, anyway.

hey everyone... Ive been reading this thread for ever but just never posted. I have a question Im hoping someone here will be able to answer.
We will be driving up tomorrow morning from Palm Beach and plan on checking into the hotel (Royal Pacific) by 6:30am to catch the boat over to City Place and be in line in front of IOA (fingers crossed) by 7:00-7:15am.
My question is this, my sisters and I have annual passes but my boyfriend just bought his on-line this past Tuesday and will need to go to guest services to pick it up.
Do you know if guest services will be open that early in the morning for him to get his pass or will we have to wait till 9am when the park opens for everyone?
I know at Disney the guest services/will call line was open in the morning before EMH, I'm praying its the same at IOA. We really want to take advantage of the extra hour in the AM for hotel guests.
