    We were out at the park today and saw "Flying Hippogriff" and Dragons doing test runs. Neither are open, but it appears they could be (At least Dragons) this Friday.

    Here's a picture we grabbed of Hippogriff:

    We watched "Dueling Dragons/Challenge" go by a few times, they haven't changed anything on the trains or the tracks.

    You may want to take this with a grain (or a shaker) of salt, but someone on OrlandoUnited just posted that the WWOHP is scheduled to begin soft openings on April 9. Again, I cannot attest to the veracity of this statement. However, the poster in question does appear to have an inside track. Go check it out at www.orlandounited.com.

    Yes, he does seem to be on track so far. However, we don't know for sure, so don't go booking vacations around this date! (minor flailing is allowed if you are already going to be down at that time!!! :upsidedow)

    Nope. I'd say that's appropriate!

    I hope it might even open a little earlier. I am coming into the area from Kentucky on April 2 to spend Easter with family and we thought it might be fun if it opened just so we could go to get a wand, choclate frogs, and taste butter bear and pumkin juice! The rides we don't even care if they are up just to see it and walk the streets would be awsome! We are planning on leaveing out on the 8th but I will stay the 9th if it opens up then.

    I was also thinking that it would be so neat if there is a sorting hat to tell everyone what house they would go into!

    That would be awsome. I can't wait to see this. I was going to Cali in Novemeber but I just convinced my family to go to FL again to see this.. I can't wait!

    Sorry I'm sure this has been asked but I can't see it....

    We will be staying at PB 15th - 19th April. Will Duelling Dragons be open? This is my favourite ride and DS (aged 10) has promised he will go on as he didn't make the height requirement last time.

    We will be devasted if its closed. Well actually DS might not be.....:rotfl::rotfl:

    Universal's Website states that it will be closed until March 18th.. so it should reopen March 19th. So, hopefully it will be open when u are there.

    That would be FANTASTIC:cool1:!!!! I'm not even telling my kids it's a possibility (we'll be there at the end of April...) but I'm holding my breath! I think the timing makes sense- the Easter crowds will be gone so they'll have a "reasonable" crowd to open it with...

    I'm also hoping that this won't bring in the big crowds during the week- I think they'll be waiting until after May 28th...At least that's what I hope for my sake!

    I have really been saying I thought they would have it open to some degree in time for the Easter crowd. Sure hope I am right. We will be there 2 weeks after Easter, so am keeping my fingers crossed.
