    Wow. These shops are going to be attractions unto themselves. How are they going to get people through them?

    The Leaky Cauldron was able to interview a Universal exec today and learned some interesting info about Olivanders and other parts of the park: http://www.the-leaky-cauldron.org/2...e-to-a-set-opening-date-more-details-revealed

    Each wizard will enter the shop one at a time and will be spending 2-5 minutes having their wand chosen for them, and apparently they are trying to work out how to keep the lines moving for this.
    Leaky also had another article with this info: http://www.the-leaky-cauldron.org/2010/1/28/wwohp-ollivanders-details-and-pics

    (Sorry if it's not giving you the direct links, you may have to copy and paste them)

    So is the general consensus that it won't be open the first week of may? I have a trip to Orlando the last week of April/first week of May and wanted to stop by USF if Wizarding World of Harry Potter is open but if not i'll save USF till Halloween when I go to Horror Nights.

    Thanks!

    I think the end of April/beginning of May would be pushing it. But...who knows how close they really are to finishing. Keep your fingers crossed.
