I'm sure someone has posted this in the 90 pages but could someone tell me what they are saying is the grand opening date? Thanks!

Any number of different theories, but the Harry Potter vacation packages start on May 28, so that seems to be a probable date that it will be open. Many believe a soft opening before that date is likely. Nothing has been confirmed by Universal yet.

I'm surprised more people aren't talking about this. Is this an indicator that it will be open by April 23? Or will the Grad nights be a soft opening? They are advertising right on the Grad Nights attractions page that Harry Potter is one of the attractions. Of course, there is a disclaimer that rides can change, but at this point they have to know if it will be open at that time or not so I cant imagine they would advertise it if it wouldn't be open.

Did they not advertise the RRR on the Grad Bash last year, and we all know what happened to it.

I don't like the rocks though. The color's look unnatural. But you get the idea. :]
And I kind of got carried away with the snow. But it's just so much fun to draw it! :'D

2010 - The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - (3/13/10) I’ve heard that the
Sorting Hat may be part of the queue for Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey. While this could end up being an animatronic, I’ve also heard rumors that it could be playey by a live actor… much like the talking Fountain. Meanwhile if your curious to see just what the ride cars may look like, check out these drawings discovered at IAAPA a couple of years ago at the Kuka display.

Agree, the fading alone looks bad-may as well pick a new color.

This is exactly what I thought Soarin was going to be. Maybe not quite so extreme of possible movements (which is better yet IMO) but kind of like in a hang glider moving from screen to screen. This looks incredible.

I'm glad they're including the Sorting Hat. I talked about this a while ago how it would be a huge oversight if they left it out. It's a great marketing strategy, I know if I was sorted into any of the houses, I would be leaving WWoHP with bags and bags of house gear!!

Also about the Grad Bash, my brother is part of it, and I posted a while ago how he told me they were telling them at school that they would be opening WWoHP (minus the attractions) for the graduates.
