    These photos and talk about new HP area are really getting us excited about a visit to Universal. We love WDW but with them not really having anything new that would stir a high level excitement our attention has turned toward Universal for the next two years. Just hope this will maybe give some good ol' competition in the Orlando area:wizard:

    I have to say I am super excited about this!! We have a cruise on DCL for Nov. 2010... hmmm perhaps we'll be staying at Universal instead of WDW before the cruise!?! We've never done IOA. We are enormous HP fans in our family, so this is going to go over HUGE with my DH and kids! I agree, WDW has nothing new coming in the next few years. Watch out, I think HP is going to be a huge draw.

    Of course until there is a solid announcement of a date and that day actually comes it is all up in the air as far as opening dates go for any attraction anywhere. I'm hoping it will be opened before our August trip when before really doesn't matter to me. ;)

    We are looking forward to the Harry Potter Park too! We are thinking November 2010. We'll be going this October to use our free passes, our first time at US!

    Do you think it will coincide with the next movie to come out. If so, on a television program yesterday the reporter mentioned that the next movie would not come out til late 2010. What do you think the definition of late 2010 is?

    Thanks for the pictures everyone. We are going to WDW November 2010 to celebrate my oldest son turning 13. I hope that the Wizarding World is open by then. We have never been to US before, but we will loose time with the mouse for Harry Potter.

    The next movie (part one of Deathly Hallows) comes out on November 19, 2010. I hope the WWoHP is open next summer - we are planning a trip for summer to see it!

    Wow! The offsite construction photos are amazing!
    It's great to see how much work has been done at the park since we were there last November.:wizard:

    That's pretty stupid, why not just wait to have everything done and then open? People will be extremely dissapointed to get there and realize only Hosgmeade is done.

    Probably they need to open the street that used to connect The Lost Continent with Jurassic Park now diverted thru a wood bridge.
    Hogsmeade is going to be a beautiful place full to snow covered roofs ideal for decorating for the christmas season

    I sort of disagree in a way.
    1st I think this will not be considered the "official opening" of Wizarding World. I think that will be when everything is done. But it will be a soft opening of sorts. *for me*, like many visitors, I will be down when my vacation allows, and in my case, that's March 2010. I would rather be able to see SOME of the progress than none at all.

    As long as people know IN ADVANCE that not everything is open, then there should be no dissapointment.
