Early Entry for US?

Now that the new Harry Potter area is opening in US this summer, will they add early entry to Universal Studios for onsite guests?

I don't see how they can't with Cabana Bay opening up.

Likely they will..Not so sure how effective it will be .Once Cabana Bay opens that adds 1800 rooms of people to the early entry perk.Harry Potter will be packed more than it is

True...it could end up being a complete mess. That's a lot of people to add to the early entry mix.

It might work, if they open other attractions other than harry potter..But if it is only Harry Potter, it could be messy.Especially since as of now, the partner hotels are still offering the early entry perk.

Yes, but also consider this... The early entry for wizarding world would Now be split to two separate parks. And would disperse the crowd a little bit for those wishing to take the hogwarts express.

They could easily open Despicable Me and Transformers as well to disperse crowds until Diagon opens.

I think it will still be packed..Unless they stop the early entry at the partner hotels, but will have to see how it plays out
