    I would like opinions on this also. I booked my Memorial day trip in Jan before the HP package was offered. My documents from Universal does state early entry for IOA but now I am nervous. TIA to all who respond!

    My guess is...you will be able to walk around the new land and maybe ride the coasters but I doubt the Forbidden Journey will be open before 6/18. I would think Universal is saving that for the Grand Opening but who really knows? Maybe they will announce more details closer to the opening date.

    Thank you for the quick response!!!!! I am so fortunate that we can go to Universal once a year so if I have to wait until next Memorial day that will be fine! It might be less crowded!

    Thanks to the Dis I bought 3 years worth of the $99 ticket before they were removed! THANKS DISERS!!!:thumbsup2

    I was told by a Universal rep to not book the original May 28 package b/c I'm a passholder. So, I just booked a regular room off-site since I was going down that weekend anyway. Now I'm a little upset that I might not get to see the HP stuff and that's the only weekend I can get down there for quite awhile. I hope they do some soft openings or something or people are going to be mad that weekend.

    They're going to have to at LEAST soft open it with a decent amount of time before official opening - I'd be surprised if you weren't fine, especially so close to the "grand" opening!

    Actually- now that I am starting to chill- I am remembering that when I made our reservations, that I was told that our room key would enable us to ride the FJ once (FOTL) per day. So hopefully that means that the WWoHP will be open to others not reserving the HP package......right?....keeping all ten fingers crossed.....

    This is what I was told by the reservationist as well...Everyone with a room key would be allowed to use express access once per day for FJ. The Dragon Challenge and FotH would be unlimited.

    We leave Florida on June 18th and had planned to go to Universal a few days before this date. My family has been looking forward to the Harry Potter area for months. I hope that we get to see it. If people have been told that their room keys give them access to once a day for the Forbidden Journey does anyone think that FOTL tickets will offer the same thing?

    All of the sites and previews look amazing.....
    We are heading to Universal on June 9th for three days only. We only get down there every few years so here is to hoping that we can see FJ. I want to see everything!:yay::cheer2:
