We were going to stop by Universal Orlando for a couple of days, primarily to see the Wizarding World of HP.
I'm into planning in advance, so we we were going to go in 2014, but now that Harry is coming to University City,
we're just going to save $ on the Florida trip and spend an extra day or two at WDW. (I've already been there so the updated Spiderman would be the only other thing I'd really want to see.)
There might be others in highly populated S. California who will also just wait for the newer Hogsmeade Village to come to us.
So why did Universal announce this so early? So fans, potential customers, and stockholders know that is a company on the move?
Any other reasons?
Couldn't they have gotten more attention by acting like they were tying to keep it a secret?
Have they gotten more specific on the opening date? Opening after 2015 seems weak to me.
