    Like I said, all it takes is a little research. Also, people who make assumptions based on Universal's marketing slogan should have paid more attention to the "within a theme park" part of it. No one should expect an actual full-scale park within another park. It's common sense IMO.

    News outlets are always calling it a park, but there's nothing Universal can do to stop them. They only control their own press releases. And remember, theme parks are not a mainstream form of entertainment, and most of the people reporting on it don't actually care enough to get their facts straight. Some of them even get IOA's name wrong, including the HP fan sites, who ought to know better since they have an invested interest in this.

    Middle-aged women. Many of them have the same tendency to think they're funny when they really aren't. Ellen apparently speaks to that side of them.

    I did laugh at the flask though.

    Re: Wizarding World Tour with Ellen

    I thought it was humorous. But i am not middle aged yet :Eek:
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...
