I thought that the people on the Orlando United site had said that it was fine at one point as long as credit was given. I'll try to find where they said that.

You are very right Phamton ... and what strikes me as odd is that he/she said they are not affiliated with Orlando United

Thanks damo. It sounds like OrlandoUnited has no problem with this. Until I hear from someone official from OU, the pictures can stay. And if anyone would like to further question the netiquette, please either report any posts that you feel are breaking copyright or PM me. Calling someone out on a thread is not the best way to handle this.

I'm coming into this thread for the first time today -- having just heard about it from my DH who is practically bursting at the seams! I went through several pages --- but couldn't find:

do we have a date that this is opening?

Still no date, just a bunch of guesses of somewhere around May-June.

I'm so tempted to factor in a day at IOA/US in my early May trip, but it all depends on whether Harry is open or not.

I'm thinking about May 11 - what's people's betting it'll be open by then?

Another member that "found" Orlando United & signed up thanks to Don Pacho. I love amusement/theme parks and everything about them, therefore the more sources of info I can get, the happier I am. It looks by the pics that opening day should be on target for Spring, although I realize "Spring" itself is still a pretty big window. All the same, I just love the anticipation!!!
