HP is looking great!
We have plans for a visit next year and I am really looking forward to it.
If it's not open when we go in May....we have to wait till Oct.
DITTO here!!! We were at US/IOA Oct. '08 & they had the future WWHP section/area boarded off, with only signs up saying coming 2010, so we've been very anxiouslly awaiting this.
We just love Florida in October; little to no rain & still plenty warm to swim, etc. AND, very low crowds plus our kid's are out for Fall break so it's just perfect for us.
Just heard a rumour of soft openings mid March. Just a RUMOUR though!!! (over on Orlando United if you'd like to check it out youself)
Yay! We're not going until July, but I can't wait to start hearing reports and seeing pictures from people who go before we do!
JackandSally79 - We may have to wait til October also if HP doesn't open by Memorial Day weekend. That would be a bummer because we are so psyched for our May vacation. We were saving WDW for October but may have to switch around our plans if HP doesn't open by the end of May. Keeping our fingers crossed though!

Are we definitely sure we arent going through the courtyard at all? Hmmmmm....
Anyway, more pictures over here.
Any day now its going to be next to impossible to take pics of anything new because all the outer work will be done.
I honestly don't think it is possible. And it really seems way too small.
The new site is great!
I just saw a Video on Today show about a a Classroom contest for a visit to HP opening. She stated " May" will be a special time for some lucky classroom.
Thanks for armstrong80 for the link!
Ok, now I am really hoping for a "soft" opening over our spring break trip!! I'd be so happy to just walk through Hogsmeade and try some butterbeer!
From a business point of view, it would be very smart to grab some of the spring break revenue by opening up the gift shops and give us a tease to return this summer!
I'm thinking the grand opening would coincide with next release H.P. movie which of course is May. So I am not hoping for the full Universal Harry Potter experience, but just a little would be so AWESOME!!
I didn't think the next movie, Part A was scheduled until November???
Nov 19th ..... allegedly
OOOps, I am wrong. I thought that was what my DH said to me, who is usually a movie guru, but he was "off" on this one! I thought he knew something I didn't! lol I should know what I am talking about when I speak up, but not this time.
(DH had to rush to IMDB verify for himself that the opening for H.P. was indeed, delayed because he was pretty sure it was to coincide with the park opening! He really tries to be a movie guru...and I am generally more like Homer Simpson, with the wind up monkey with symbols on my brain!)
Just got an email that the Deathly Hallows part 1 and 2 will definitely be in
As the pictures show you can see inside the courtyard from other areas. Remember the castle is not full size either.
