    I think those are just facade buildings so should go up quickly.

    These pictures have certainly posed a bunch of new questions!!! I thought the exit to Hogwarts was going to be beside the entrance but that looks changed now. There are all kinds of funny new gaps that we've not seen before. It is verrrrrry interesting!

    I don't think the courtyard is going to be anything. If you look at the size of those guys up on the walkway around the great hall, you can see exactly how small that courtyard really is.

    Wow! I had no idea the FJ buiding was THAT huge! I'm wondering what's up with the courtyard, too?

    Anybody see the Today show today (Friday)? After they announced their Harry Potter contest, they said that WWoHP was opening in APRIL. That would be great if true! :woohoo:

    :cool1::yay::dance3::thumbsup2:cheer2::banana:Hope, hope, hope you're right! I'll be at WDW May 1st-9th and would love to spend a few days over at Universal with HP!

    Hey, is anyone else rereading the books or watching the movies again, just to make sure you don't miss any of the little details they might have put in. I love wandering around looking for stuff like that at theme parks.

    Argh, I do wish they'd announce the opening! It's quite distressing now :lmao:

    I'd rather just know if I'll be able to see it in all its glory or if I need to come home and save up over again to go back a couple of years down the line! :rotfl2:

    I just heard from my travel agent that the grand opening will be on or near June 21 and there might be soft openings in April/May.

    The travel agent is just going by the last date of the contract. There has been no announcement.

    Just got off the phone with my travel agent who called the Universal travel agent line. This is what she was told - they will not be announcing the grand opening until 1 week before. Prior to the grand opening, they will be opening WWoHP an hour or two each day, adding an hour or so until it’s open all day, but they won’t be advertising that it’s open….if people wander in and it’s open, it’s open.

    We’ll be going this year, sort of a once in a lifetime trip for us, and I really want to make sure that HP is open when we go. It kinda sucks that they won’t give out more specific dates.

    It seems really difficult to be opening an entire area for an hour each day.
