Hi there!

Researching our first trip and I am having trouble finding info on two topics, so I'm coming to the experts!

Three Broomsticks- For a late August trip (21st), would it be better to attempt a lunch or dinner meal? I know it opens at 10:30 for lunch but haven't seen current descriptions of waits. The older research tells me that people would line up at 9am for a shot at the early lunch. Is this still the case? Hopefully not! We can attend a lunch or dinner or both frankly if the kids are so inclined...just would love to hear about 2012 waits for this restaurant!

Ollivander's- We will be lining up for Ollivander's first thing with our early entry. Is this "show" continuous? Or is it every so often? If we don't make the first show, I would like to have a rough idea of how long we'd be in line.

Thanks!

olivanders is a continuous show.
i think it is about 20 peeps, maybe 25, that are let into the shop for the show.

once that show is over, the next in line will enter for the show.

if this is the highlight for your family, get in line for it first rather than FJ.

the line grows by the hour for olivanders.



i went to the 3 B's early last october.
no problem for doing lunch there early.

it was less crowded for the dinner hour on the day i was in parry hotter ville.

crowds start to lessen that last week in august for the parks.

You do not need a reservation for lunch or dinner. Breakfast is generally reserved, but you may be able to get in by waiting outside the restaurant.
You can get breakfast at 3B's now? I thought it used to only be for Hotel guests? Can someone clarify? Also, my plans have changed, I can go to IOA on Sunday now. My original plan was a Tuesday. Is one better than the other? (total trip dates are 9/15-9/21).

When we were there in March they were allowing people to eat breakfast there and if they were busy they had a wait-list.

I haven't personally, but a number of posters have reported they could. Totally depends on availability of course, but I get the impression most walk-ups are successful. YMMV.

Either Sunday or Tuesday should be good--maybe Tuesday is slightly better. Avoid Mondays in any case.

tuesdays are always good but sundays can be lighter.

many peeps do their vacations sunday to sunday which would make lighter crowds in the parks.

Is three broomsticks a sit down reasturaunt or do you order at the counter. I really love Harry Potter but I don't have time to have to wait for food. Are there any good counter reasturaunt?
