    Re: Potter announcement next week

    MuggleCast on MuggleNet just announced Universal has changed its HP vacation package dates from May 28 to June 18. On the Universal website it now says, "Grand Opening June 18."

    Obviously I'm none too happy about this as we adjusted our flight and booked a room based on the Universal's website stating you could buy tickets for the Harry Potter opening starting May 28. It looks like I either need to pray for soft openings or figure out another plan for that day of our vacation. I'm not a huge fan of Universal, so the only reason I wanted to go at all was for HP.

    Bit of a noob on the Universal side, but is the dragon coaster for Harry Potter brand new, or did they close the current Dueling Dragons coaster and just re-paint that.

    I've seen a couple different sources (one was a tv interview with someone from Universal) stating the following:

    "If you purchased a Wizarding World vacation package, and it begins earlier than June 18th, your package will still be honored. Call Universal for more details."

    when pressed for a soft-opening for others, the Universal representative said they were not ready to announce any soft opening at this time. So they may be trying for soft openings, but need to be closer to completion before giving the a.o.k.

    Looks like a bit more than just repainting, but probably the same track.

    The trains got new bodies, and the queue was updated in integrate the HP theme. TFU got A LOT more updates from the addition of WWOHP than DD.

    Not really. They made some drastic changes to the entrance & castle facade, and probably did the same to the queue. But unlike FotH, I don't think any of the visible changes to DD have actually been positive....

    From what I've heard, only those that bought the May 28 to June 17. This is a huge mistake if it is true because people will be rioting to get in. Those that planned their trips around that time
