    Does anyone know yet if the ride will be accessable for people in wheelchairs? I can get out of my chair if someone helps me transfer, but wonder if it is doable??

    woohoo, just booked June 22-27 at the Hard Rock. I was going to try to go for the grand opening, but one of the people going has a wedding on the 19-20. Oh well, it'll still be an awesome experience. I will be sure to do a TR and I will have loads of pictures.

    What was up with them announcing the opening at 9:30 in the morning? I thought it was supposed to be noon.

    Universal is not in the wrong here. They are simply not guaranteeing anything until June 18th. I booked earlier in good faith, you did as well. But the only date they HAVE to have WWOHP open and running is now June 18th, the first date they've confirmed as official since they announced the project.

    No. They need to do that soon.

    Do you guys think the parks will reach capacity and have to close the first few weeks of WWOHP? Since I will be there the 22nd, I was planning on being at the gates at opening. Does Universal ever reach capacity like WDW does during Christmas?

    When you select and click through to finish the booking, it gives you the option to choose the date

    I know the dueling dragons and the flight of the hippogriff are both roller coasters....and it seems as though the ride called "Harry potter and the forbidden journey" will be similar to Soarin right?

    Will they have any family oriented rides that dont involve coasters or fast movements???

    jessrose18 ADVENTURE IS OUT THERE!!

    Thank you. For the people that are staying multiple days do they get early entry every day that they are staying, or just one day? Just curious.

    At this time, these are the only three rides in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter area. Flight of the Hippogriff is a family coaster, similar in idea to the Barnstormer (but a much better coaster!).

    Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey is only like Soarin' in that there are probably large projection screens at some point. It is a thrill ride where your car (on a robotic arm) will be jerked around and will definitely involve fast movements.

    That being said, you will be able to walk through the castle and not ride Forbidden Journey (which looks to be an attraction in itself and amazing!), and explore all of Hogsmeade.

    We too, did NOT buy the package. But are staying on site for 5 nights in the first week of June. I did look at the package multiple times going back and forth thinking about the $100 for the breakfast in WWHP for 5 of us.
    I can not imagine they would let the small number of "package holders" into the WWHP and not onsite guests for those who booked the dates between 5/28-6/17. That is just crazy.
    I really hope fire and ice coasters that are now in WWHP are open when we are there.

    Do you just have to pay the Islands of Adventure admission fee or is there an additional fee for the Harry Potter Park? I've heard conflicting info from people who don't have any sources to back that up!

    There is no additional fee...WWoHP is part of IoA.

    lildamo gave you the answers as to the rides. But you should also be aware that there are expected to be many smaller "attractions" and events in Hogsmeade, such as Olivander's wand selection. I think there will be plenty to see and do in the whole area for families of all ages.

    Just talked to an agent at Universal. She said that if you booked onsite hotel or have the Harry Potter package, you will have full access into WWHP for the dates 5/28-6/17.
    So confusing...

    Now that would be more like it. That is what people were being told.

    and thats what we're hoping happens...we booked RPR 6/4 -10 on the PIN code and have the $99 tix. Fortunately we are driving so IF poeple are posting back saying they in fact did not have *full* access,and US/IOA verifies it we MAY adjust our dates to be at the end of our trip instead of at the beginning. I know we will lose the great rate we have, (125) so may just do 2 nights onsite then, and make use of all 7 days of the tix part off site. Either way, the WWOHP still looks WAY COOL!

    I believe shl1108 is correct. I just spoke to a very knowledgable person at Universal reservations regarding my room-only reservation booked for 5/26 - 5/31 and she told me that any hotel reservation booked prior to today's announcement that includes 5/28 to 6/17, whether package or room-only will be allowed access to WWoHP. We will be given a packet of info upon check in and we might be given a specific time to enter. She assured me that my reservation was included in this. That is fine with me even if we can only enter once during our stay, that's better than nothing, and the lines should be very limited.

    Hope this helps. ;)

    I just called UO reservations and they said it's only package holders who get in starting May 28th...which I really don't believe. For what it's worth though, that's the info I was given...

    Then again, I was making a new reservation and hadn't booked before today's date, so we'll see what information comes out in the next couple weeks as they get their story straight!
