Yes! And my children are 19 and 15, so it's just short of a miracle that they sit down and talk to their parents for a half hour about a trip that is still 5 plus months away.

Question Is there a date for the Grand Opening yet???

I have to admit I would rather not be there for it. I like HP and I think it will be amazing but I would like to avoid the crush of the grand openinig. We will be at Universal staying at the HRH MAy 26th thru May 31st. What do you think?

Thanks in advance!

My whole family would love to be there at opening but we'll be waiting till Nov. to go . I have to agree that Alan Rickman is the perfect Snape and a great actor! My DDs are so excited to go to WWoHP and then being able to see the next installment of the movie within a couple weeks of each other that they have both marked on their calendars.

Both of my DDs are always coming on this thread to check on the updates so I want to thank Don Pancho for the wonderful posts and please keep them coming and so I'm hoping that the thread doesn't get pulled because of the additional drama

Question

I am sure this has already been asked but I can't read through all these. When are the dates for this opening? We are going June 5th.

Actually tongue in cheek comments are the same as sarcasm. I am in the process of cleaning up this thread. All name calling and any sarcastic posts will be removed and warnings and infractions given to comply with the DisBoard rules. There are many discussion boards that welcome name calling, sarcasm and even stirring the pot but the DisBoard is not one of them. If any of you find that your post is removed, it will be for these reasons. If you were an innocent bystander and just quoted a deleted post, then your post will also be deleted. Differences in opinions are always welcome but be aware of how you express that difference of opinion. It's all in the deliverance. Debating is fine but arguing, name calling, sarcasm, and pot stirring are not. I am locking the thread just until I can clean it up. I will open it back up after I finish. Please play nice and follow the DisBoard rules.

I know what you mean! When we were there in the Fall of '08 it seemed like it was SO far away, but now seeing pics, etc., it won't be long now.

So I just got off the phone with the Universal Resort agents and I was told that they are advising oversea residents NOT to come until May. She also told me that if you are staying on site you will only be allowed to use your front of the line access once per day for Harry Potter and the Forbbiden Forrest, however they are opening up the attraction one hour early for resort guest only. Just thought I would let you know.

Couple of new pics here. Looks like work is finally being done to camouflage the show building.

Thanks for all the answers about the opening. I really hope they wouldn't ship all the actors down there just to do a couple press events, that would be pretty disappointing. Rowling I could understand, but at least give us the actors!
