I just heard from my travel agent that the grand opening will be on or near June 21 and there might be soft openings in April/May.

The travel agent is just going by the last date of the contract. There has been no announcement.

Just got off the phone with my travel agent who called the Universal travel agent line. This is what she was told - they will not be announcing the grand opening until 1 week before. Prior to the grand opening, they will be opening WWoHP an hour or two each day, adding an hour or so until itís open all day, but they wonít be advertising that itís openÖ.if people wander in and itís open, itís open.

Weíll be going this year, sort of a once in a lifetime trip for us, and I really want to make sure that HP is open when we go. It kinda sucks that they wonít give out more specific dates.

It seems really difficult to be opening an entire area for an hour each day.

I wonder if the pink part is supposed to peel away and its lettered vinyl?

That's what I was thinking. Maybe they are etching the glass with it and it's a stencil.

It's the angle of the overhead shots. The Unicorn/Hippogriff will have the same track, the same way the Dragons will have their same track.

Also, I have heard from a reliable source that there will be Required Lockers for HP.

Uh, oh. That sounds like DD7 won't be riding. Any hint as to the height requirement?

Men in Black has required lockers, so don't worry too much about it yet.

I really want it to be awesome, but I also really want to share it with my kids. My DD10 loves Harry Potter as much as I do - I don't want her to be scared off. Her sister is unlikely to ride it anyway, but I hope she gets the choice.
