This weekend Kansas City Star (paper) had a section in arts and entertainment that had standard pic of WWHP and some quotes from universal's announcement. Kinda cool!

OK you'll have to forgive me for not having the time to wade through the pages of this thread tonight, but any idea of when the opening of this land will be? I'm there next April and am thinking that's far too early to expect to experience any of it (based on the opening of RRR for one!)...?
