Also, notice the steel framing on the top blocks of the old oak restrooms. This too will be completely rethemed ofcourse. I maintain that they will never shut down dueling dragons throughout all of this, and IF they do, it will only be a day or so.

It's not a good idea to wait until it's officially announced. It will be open after April for sure. Just go ahead and book.

Super pics thanks for posting them!! Do you guys think that they are working on the interior of the buildings yet? Or finishing exterior before, I saw a pic with wires which means that there is an electricion on site. I know when I built my house once the exterior walls were up and roof on they started the interior, the stucco was going on last!

This was found on Mugglenet.com today. There's hope for my April trip yet!

Wizarding World to open in April 2010 at the latest?
Wizarding World to open in April 2010 at the latest? Back in September, Universal announced that the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park would see a Spring 2010 release date. Today, it looks like we're getting that "Spring" time frame narrowed down.

MuggleNet reader Pammie has pointed us to Univeral Orlando's "2010 Gradbash" page (an event held for graduating high school students every year at Universal). It notes that attendees of the Gradbash - to be held April 23rd, 24th, and 30th - "will be the first GRAD BASH class to be able to step into an entire world of magic and excitement at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter".

With that information in mind, we can assume the Wizarding World park will at least be ready for visitors by the end of April. The bottom of the Gradbash page notes that "Prices, dates, times, rides, attractions and entertainment are subject to change without notice", so Universal is not necessarily guaranteeing an April opening.

As always, we'll keep you updated!

Here's the link: GradBash2010
