It's still sketchy as to what exactly will be at WWoHP in terms of restaurants but I would imagine counter service will be the majority.

Ok, gotcha. In my head, Three Broomsticks was a sit-down.

in any which case, I'm going to be reviewing more and getting myself up to speed as soon as my ADRs for Disney portion are done.

The Three Broomsticks will be the only "full service" restaurant in WWoHP

The Hogs Head is a more pub-like setting that will offer additional drinks and snacks

also Honeydukes sweetshop although tech. a store will have plenty of famous candy from the HP series, both book and film.

There will also be Butterbeer carts stationed along Hogsmeade village.

If they were smart, they wouldn't use the boat on the lagoon. They would WANT people to walk around the park... =spend more $.

"Full service" doesn't necessarily mean "sit-down"....it could still be counter service and go find a seat to sit...which, is going to be my guess.

So let me see if this is right, there are only 3 rides? And 2 of them are pretty intense rides? Is there a fantasy type ride with all kinds of cool special effect type things? That's what I was hoping for for Harry Potter. Are the rides similar I wonder to the level of The Mummy? I was hoping for a more elaborate fantasy version of an ET type ride, something all could do.

Correct, there are 3 rides (well 4 if you count Dragon Challenge as 2 rollercoasters).

From what we know so far, The Forbidden Journey ride will be pretty intense, probably not comparable to the Mummy since it's a completely different ride system than ANYTHING that's been done before.

Right. To me, full-service/table service equals reservation needed. If this is counter-service, then I'll just time myself correctly, so I'm not waiting forever and a day for food. I'm hoping my October, things will not be so crazy hectic as the opening months are bound to be.

I was also really disappointed to hear there aren't any milder rides. I love Harry Potter and I don't like intense rides.
I'd really hate waiting for my guy while he's experiencing the wizarding world all by himself .
To me even the ex-unicorn-kind-of-ride can cause nausea.
I wish they did something like E.T. (which I LOVE) or even something like the spiderman ride.

Where does it say that it's counter service? I'm confused. I'm pretty sure that it isn't given the menu. What about the Pub in the back too?

Are you sure about that? I'm pretty sure they are serving breakfast.

This is what the menu for The Enchanted Oak was:

http://allears.net/uni/menu/men_eo.htm

There is as much selection there as the Three Broomsticks will probably have.

It's set up the same so far...even seating outside.

Most of the parks are CS and with the volume of people expected, CS moves people thru quicker. There has been much discussion and most think it will be CS. If you want TS, Mythos is just down the next land.

This will be our 5th year going to UO, and I will bet that it will be CS.

Most TS is at CW.

As for the pub...that used to be inside (where you would sit & eat)...Alchemy Bar. I wouldn't be surprised if they did the same thing and put the bar in Three Broomsticks. It was always convenient to get some beverages on the way out of DD (now DC).

It's not typical for places to serve breakfast in the parks. There's Confisco's exception w/ the Spiderman breakfast. I do believe the HP packages were selling a breakfast...which, could easily be shipped/catered in.

I guess only time will tell.... Stay tuned!
