Can anyone tell me when the opening is planned.
We want to visit orlando next spring from 22 April till 16 May..
Is there a change that it's allready open.
It is supposed to open between Dec. 2009 and June 2010. At this point that is all we know.
When I see the Pictures, I cannot believe that the Opening wil be in December.
Me neither. They need a good bit of magic to get any of it ready by then.
too bad Magic is Disney's business eh? ( JUST KIDDING!! Really!... I like both parks.... don't hurt me... )
Does anyone know if HP will feature a boat ride? Maybe like the boat that went through the bank to get Harry's cash in the first movie/book? There would be tell tell signs of trenches with a steel track that would give this away, if they were constructing a boat ride. I would say if there is nothing like this by now, there is not going to be a boat ride, but just a guess. Thanks for the inside info if anyone has any.
subscriping-planning on going dec 2010, but if it opens next april i bet we might have to make an emergency trip to Florida!
No one really knows what is going to be in HP Land...Universal isn't saying anything about the possible attractions. We'll all have to wait and see.
I was thinking more in the terms of Harry Potter magic. That's got to be more powerful, doncha think? I mean, he took out Voldemort and really all Disney's got is a little bit of bibbity bobbity boo!!
Actually it was a cart, not a boat that went through Gringotts. I do agree that sequence would make a great dark coaster- that is if I liked coasters. My kids would love it though!
Can't wait for HP Island to open
We will make our first trip to Universal property for this purpose
Need to start researching the "other side". I would imagine we should stay onsite. We are definitely not into coasters or simulators so I'm not sure how long to plan to stay on Universal property
One night onsite will get you two days of unlimited Express access...just something to think about.

Fog and robots to be part of Universal's Harry Potter world?
Universal Orlando has filed another couple of interesting construction notices tied to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
One is for a Finnish company, FogScreen Inc., to provide fog special effects. As the name suggests, the company specializes in creating nebulous, walk-through fog banks -- made out of ultrasonic waves and tap water -- on which images and videos can be projected. (Think the Davy Jones effect near the beginning of Walt Disney World's Pirates of the Caribbean ride.)
The second is an updated notice for work from Orlando-based theme-park-design company Austin 2 Paris Inc. The notice says the work is for "automata" -- the plural of automaton, which is a type of robot.
that sounds interesting. The only thing i could picture fog for is voldemort and the death eaters.
If this works well, I can definately see Universal trying this at HHN one year and it would be GREAT!
I can't wait.. I bet it will be something to see.
That would be too kewl-if only tho!!
Oh yeah that would work too!
How could i forget about the dementors? Especially since i watched Prisoner of Azkaban today.
