Quite minor, but I wonder how they are planning to light the place during the evenings? Old-English style lamp posts? Up-lit castle?
Sounds like it. There are even lights inside the castle windows.

There was nothing about the ride itself at all. They were simply photos of the castle shell. Here is the link to a few. The rest were similar.

And here are the rest of the pics, only without the watermark, full size, not screen caps, and good quality.

The banner at the top of this page has a 4 day special for the WWoHP with most dates from May 28th available. So they must be sure they will have it open them. We will be there May 15 - 22 and if we miss it by a week I'll be so sad. Any big news? I'm behind reading this thread, so excuse me if all of this is old hat.

Nothing new as far as an opening date, we're in the same boat & have reservations for May 19-24. I hope they announce something soon, it's driving me nuts.

Dueling Dragons is now closed. We're getting close!!!!!!!!!

I think Universal did a great job in keeping it open this long. So many people expected it to be closed a very long time ago.

Rumour is that it will be closed for a around a month. Hopefully that means that the new area will be opening at that time!




Jurrasic Park River Adventure is now back up. So it is just the rides in the Harry Potter area that are now closed.

Oh my gosh, how exciting! As sad as I am to see DD being changed into something else, I'm so excited for HP that it's a bit ridiculous. Especially because I was never a huge fan of the books and movies

Going to be in Orlando from April 23rd to 30th, I am so praying that it is open by then. Probably won't be, but was hoping they would try and get it open for the Easter crowd.

If they allow onsite guests one pass per day to Harry Potter, will that mean that you would only get one FOTL pass for say the dueling dragons which will now be in Harry Poter? And any other rides within the Harry Potter? (how many rides will there be in there?
We love going on fire and ice multiple times!! It will be sad if we are limited to one express ride on those roller coasters. Does anyone know how that will work?
Thanks in advance!

I'm hoping they'll repaint the DD tracks to fit the land a bit more closely....the red and blue clash too much now IMO.

I just booked a room at the Royal Pacific today and the reservation agent said that "if" Harry Potter is open for my stay I will be allowed only one FOTL for Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey. Since she specifically said that one ride I would think that FOTL would still work the say when dueling dragons reopens.

If you look at the Superbowl commercial one of the tracks is brownish/gold in color. . . . . FWIW
