Sounds like a CS location to me and the "Great Feast Platter" sounds like it'll be a combo meal of some sort. Also, a place that lists Turkey Leg as an option to me sounds like a definite CS. I would've loved another table service or a buffet though.

Well, I finally decided to take a chance and book the week of May 23rd. I would love for this to be open, but I dread it if it is Grand Opening crowds. We were at DL when Nemo opened - that was a nightmare and that was only one ride, not an entire section of the park.

Thanks for all the info guys.

Here in the UK, universal have just shown an advert, featuring Harry and friends on Broom sticks flying around the theme park buildings, being chased by a fire eating dragon. It looked really good.

Myself and my DS can't wait to go. Now I need to read all these posts to figure out all this talk about the resturants etc.

We could do with mini posts, or well back the reading.

Rumors say that it will have an attraction in 4D in the castle of Hogwarts,
with a total sensory experience. No one knows for sure what this attraction
is, but there are indications that it is a flight of Quidditch or a class.

Quote:
The Hogwarts' windows were designed with a fascinating technology, first
will come one with 3m high, then another with 2m and the last one with 1m,
so that, when viewed from below, it appears that the building hasn't an end,
providing more high to it.

Don Pacho,
Could you please stop posting images from Orlando United without getting permission? Copying and pasting forum code that links to images exlusive to Orlando United is not only unfair because of a bandwidth issue, but also unfair because it takes away from the hard work from Orlando United members to get said exclusive content.

What would be acceptable is a link to the exact posting with the images on Orlando United, rather than posting the images themselves.

P.S. - It is also insulting that you write "courtest of [membername]", when no consent or courtesies were given.

I can't speak for Don Pacho, but it seems that the intent in posting the pictures was to share the excitement of WWOHP while still acknowledging the source. You are totally within your rights to request a link to your site instead. That's a very reasonable request. "Insulting" seems a bit strong, though. I don't see any ill intent in Don Pacho's posts, and because of them, I have bookmarked your site (that I didnt even know existed) and have been working through the 300+ pages on your WWOHP thread.

I know I appreciate all your hard work and photos and I'm glad that I have become aware of them through the DIS.

Then why are you complaining, and in what capacity? And how do you know Don Pacho doesn't have permission if you aren't affiliated with them? I also think your username is deliberately mis-leading.

Thank you for defending me StitchandPooh'sMom. What I do is standard "netiquette" within forums: give the proper credits to the forist and links to the sites. That is all is required.

Many forists at Orlando United publish also updates from many other forums and sites and have given links to those places.

That's odd. Honestly I would have never found OrlandoUnited.com if it wasn't for Don Pancho's reporting from them, I'm glad I found it and now post there regularly

It looks AMAZING!!! I cannot wait! We are going to IOA on our trip to March...I had hoped it would be open by then, but sadly it's not ...Any way, it certainly secures a second trip to IOA!

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

Well then you shouldn't be "aff"ended. Sorry...couldn't resist the play on words.

Because of Don Poncho's posts here, I too have bookmarked OU's site. If anything, he has helped direct traffic that way.

I just checked the postings and don't see any hotlinks. The pictures are watermarked and credit is given to the original poster of the pictures. He links back to OrlandoUnited and proper credit is given. If the owner of OrlandoUnited has an issue with this, please feel free to contact me via private message. I certainly don't want to cause any problems and will gladly abide by his request. I know that IOACentral never has a problem with their pictures being used as long as a credit is given and a link to the site. I know that no one wants hot links that use up bandwidth but these pictures don't appear to be hotlinked. It also attracted some more people to the OrlandoUnited who had otherwise never heard of the website.
