    So I very confused...on the Harry Potter theme park site now there is a link for you to buy general Universal tickets and such but we still have no idea when the Harry Potter park will be opening correct, no exact date?

    Fox 35 was showing a quick glimpse of a commercial thats going to air on the
    superbowl this year. The quick snippet seemd to ellude to riding brooms and coasters

    No need to be confused. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is not an entire park...it is a section of Islands of Adventure --- one of the islands. So tickets are being sold to get into Islands of Adventure which has many things to enjoy even before the Harry Potter section opens.

    The coaster = Dragon Challenge = Dueling Dragons.

    The broom riding....who knows, maybe it relates to the Forbidden Journey, maybe it's just a marketing ploy...

    Are they going to have the Great Hall, with effects in the ceilings. It would be such a cool site to have a character type giant seating lunch and show?

    I post on occassion but rarely-US/IOA is generally a day excursion from WDW about every 3 or 4 trips-but we have always liked that day a lot. But this is just sick. We may start staying longer if it turns out like it looks it might.

    Call me crazy but I would love to be there during a rainy night with lightning-but not until after our ride on Dragon Challenge of course. DD is our fave-for now.

    Has any information been released about The Three Broomsticks other than what was posted on the new website? Do we know yet if it will require reservations or will it be a QS location?

    The initial description that was discussed by the executive chef of Mythos was that it will be a table service restaurant. That was probably 2 years ago or so that I read it, though. Haven't heard anything about it since.

    I think that it will probably be the same as it was before...counter service.

    I can't wait to finally see it up close and personal. The new commercial really got me excited. I'm far from being a teenager, but I can't remember when I was so excited for a new part of a park to open :laughing: Reminds me of when DH was so excited about the Simpson's grand opening! :rolleyes1
