I have been hearing late March as well on message boards. You can't put any faith in those predictions though.

Thank you, damo. DD wants to dress like Bellatrix Lestrange and her friend wants to be Hermione. I think it'll be cute.

What are the chances that WWOHP will be fully operational and open to the public by May 21st?

Sorry if this has been asked before but has it been confirmed if forbidden journey will have an express line? I have looked online at the prices and it would be worth it to us to buy those before we go. I dont mind only getting one ride with express pass just saves a 15 hour que!

It looks pretty good in the pictures as well. Just thought there seems to be more and more everytime I see a picture.
Isn't it going reflect and make the pavement area like a giant (pardon the expression) caldron?

Seem like a bit of a gamble if wrong for Universal?

I bet though it will do greatat taking Christmas Time crowds in.

One thing I thought was funny when I looked at the pictures of the snow was that I didn't really even think about it. Being from Massachusetts that's what all our buildings look like right now. Then, it dawned on me...oh wait that's fake snow! This is Florida! The buildings just looked so natural to me it didn't register for a while....

Universal is offering a HP Vacation Package that is effective for travel between 5/28/10 and 12/31/10. Since the package includes things like early admission to the park and breakfast at The Three Broomsticks, I think it's safe to say that it will definitely be open by the 28th. Not sure about the 21st.

Do you get any added benefits or perks booking a package vs. room only for visits after May 25th?

Does Universal offer any transportation to and from the airport like Disney does?

TIA

No...you would have to arrange your own transportation.
