    Talking Harry Potter Park update at Islands of Adventure 01/09/11 - PHOTOS

    Ok so yesterday I spent sometime to see how post Holidays Islands of Adventure was doing, and also I have been CRAVING Butter Beer night and day, so without the queue to get into the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, I could now go and just get Butter Beer, and be blissful.

    While there I went and saw Ripsaw Falls http://micechat.com/forums/universal...1-09-11-a.html

    And I saw the now closed Triceratops Discovery Trail http://micechat.com/forums/universal...hotos.html#top

    So let's look at the wait times...






    looking pretty nice, but don't let those numbers fool you the park was still pretty full, as you will see.




    Grinchmas no more... back to Seuss Landing


    The dedication plaque at the entrance to Seuss Landing


    The blow out bridge used during the Holidays to go directly to Jurassic Park is now closed


    About to enter the Wizarding World of Harry Potter




    In line for Butter Beer


    BUTTER BEER!!!! SOOOO HAPPY!


    The line for Olivandra's


    Hogwarts, I love thee!


    I love this piece in Toon Lagoon, if you stand by there you will hear Witch Hazel talk, it is pretty funny.

    After this I hopped over to USF... Just loving my Premium Annual Pass! lol

    Thanks for the update, but I don't think that's Witch Hazel. I think it's Broom Hilda.

    Thanks for the update! One week from now I should be there myself for my very first visit!

    I'm sad the Ripsaw Falls will be closed, but excited! I hope the Spider-Man line moves briskly...

    Wow, that bridge was closed. There is a sight not seen for years. I had heard the bridge was going to be permanent, did it reopen at any point during the day?

    But forget butterbeer, you need to go to the Hog's Head for a Hog's Head Brew to have a true Harry Potter experience.

    The bridge is staying, but it is now only being used during peak times when they have to restrict access to WWoHP, which is best because it preserves the transitions from Lost Continent to WWoHP to Jurassic Park.

    UPDATE: The bridge was open today. They never cut off Wizarding World access today, but the land WAS crowded as the day went on. The line for the ride left the overflow queue and had a temp. setup in Jurassic Park and back stage areas.
