I agree. We are booked for June 12th through the 19th and I am trying to figure out what days at what parks etc. If the WWOHP is open then we will be spending one day at IOA if not then we will not be going at all.

Universal extended it's military deal until Mach 27th so my bet is that it will open on the 28th!!!

Wish we could see it!!!

Hoping for May

We're booked for Memorial Day weekend, so I'm hoping it'll be open by then...

I don't think they are going to be announcing a date. With such a high tech ride, they need to be absolutely sure that everything is going to work. If they announce a date and things aren't quite ready, there will be hell to pay.

Of course they'll announce a date, but it will likely be *after* their soft opening, once they know everything is working.

I really wish they would announce the *month* they are opening. We are booked for April but I'm going to resched if it isn't opened. I'd really prefer to go during the spring and I don't want to wait until winter 2010.

Is there *anyone* with insider information here? Anyone at all?

Sure they'll announce a media date after their soft opening. That goes without saying.

What I meant is that we are not going to get a date three months in advance so that people start booking vacations to be there for opening and get angry when it doesn't open as promised.

Right, like many high-tech attractions, they can't always know that far in advance when they'll have the ride perfected...and this is from every account, the most complex attraction ever built!

Universal is still having PR issues with what's come out about Rip, Ride Rockit and the manufacturer of that coaster, so the very last thing they want is bad press on something as crucial as this is.

I do wonder if they'll be opening other portions of the Wizarding World before the ride if they're completed.

:::cleans off his insider information::: From the reports that I've read and the rumors I've heard this ride HAS TO BE OPEN by Memorial Day (the official kick off to the summer season). The ride is operational right now, and you could stick it in a landfill next to a sign that says that it will give you a disease that will kill you and it would still be worth it.....so I hear. They've been testing it in soundstages, and have nothing but cosmetic work left to do on it. The rest of the village is coming along and will be starting shop work in Jan. (the insides of the shops).The dragons queue is destroyed and they will be working on replacing that very soon, and dragons will go down in Jan. Again, all based on rumors and reports. Nothing official, but a media event is planned for late May...in which a lot of the cast of the Harry Potter movies will be attending as well as JK Rowling. (I hear all the major cast, Harry, Ron, Hermione, Fred George Ginny, Snape, Dumbledore, Filch, Flitwick and Hagrid.)
