I love HP and definitely want to see WWoHP. Our next trip is in December but I'm taking a wait and see approach and to whether I'll go this trip or wait. I'm waiting to see what the guest reaction is, what kind of attractions they will have and how bad crowds will be. My DS is only 4 and he might not get enjoyment out of IOA and WWoHP just yet. I've never been to Universal and would really like to stay at one of their hotles for a couple of days and see both parks and some point.

Thanks for that link, that was an awesome post! And very true too. That's one on my main reasons on holding back visiting, the massive influx of crowds all swarming straight to HP.

Of course!! Are you kidding - we love Mickey and are devoted to him but we are so excited for this new venture over at Universal (I hear Mickey & Harry are great neighbors )

All kidding aside - we are going on our first family vacation in November 2010 and visiting WDW for 6 days and seeing the new Harry Potter attraction the following day. and

We do venture off property to visit US and IoA or Seaworld, oh and also to shop

I am looking forward to seeing TWWoHP, it looks like they have done it really well. Just hope that it won't be too swamped in September/October.

Do we have an official date yet for opening?

Spring 2010, nothing more specific than that though.

I am wondering how crowded WWoHP will be in November- I am going to Disney and definitely want to set aside a day for Universal. I guess I'm just going to play it by what I read on the boards & make a decision later this year.

Someday...not sure when...I'd like to visit the Harry Potter section of Universal. The only downfall for me is that I hate Universal. I know that people love it, but I don't. It gives me the feeling of a big Six Flags, and they've taken down a lot of the attractions that I liked. I've never had a desire to return.

If I ever go to Disney and stay offsite, I'll probably go to Universal and Seaworld. Until then, it's purely Disney for me.

Although, I'd love to hear all about the Harry Potter park. I just took my students to the Harry Potter Exhibition at the Boston Science Museum. It was incredible to see the costumes and props. The students loved it, and it made me want to reread the books.

Thanx

Hopefully people will go straight to IoA first for HP, which might make US quieter for the morning and then go on later in the afternoon to IoA for HP and the other parts of the park.

Hopefully the Express Pass will be really useful and help thin the lines/queues.

DH and I will be going to see Harry Potter for sure. We alway rent a car so transportation won't be a problem, but we will need to add a day to our trip, which isn't so bad either!!

Going in November. Rented a pool home. Ds7 is finally tall enough to enjoy both parks now. HP is a complete coincidence that we are going then. Talk about darn good timing though lol

Absolutely! But, I will wait until 2011 until the big rush of crowds dies down a little. We are already planning an "off-season" trip and stay at Universal hotels. That is when we would normally go to DW, but I love HP and can't wait to see some new attractions! Also, it is a good excuse to do universal parks for a change. Without the HP, we would do only DW! And after we have been, it will be back to DW for us...and waiting for the new FL in MK DW just has more to offer in terms of entertainment, food, and resorts IMO.

we bought the $99 /7 day tix...just not sure when we will go. As far as HP crowds easing, that's what I thought about TSM and look how popular that still is! We will still make WDW our main trip, normally we don't even check out of our WDW resort, but book 1 night at RPR for the FOTL access and just take overnight bags. Since we have 7 day passes this time, we may just stay offsite at USO, and hit SW and KSC as well.

We are planning 3 nights onsite at Universal. We haven't been since 2000, but the kids are now big roller coaster fans and of course we love Harry Potter. Normally we do 3 weeks at WDW, but this year will be 1 week WDW, 1 week NCL cruise, 3 night US and 3 nights offsite. Harry Potter is only a minor factor in our plans, the cruise was a big factor and the kids wanting to do other parks factor in. Our next vacation will be back to WDW solely I'm sure.

Untill they release more detail information I don't plan one way or the other. If most of what they will offer are roller coster rides I will not waste my time. Every new ride they have added in the past few years have been roller coster type rides which is not for me. I have not been to US for years has they have nothing worth the extra dollars it would cost.
