I mentioned my family is leaving this weekend to go to Disney World in Orlando right? Well I’m slightly less jealous of them now. But only slightly.
You see, the opening date of Harry Potter World aka The Wizarding World of Harry Potter (phew! what a mouthful.) has been announced. And while millions of spring breakers were, I’m sure, hoping to hit up both Disney World AND Universal’s Islands of Adventure, today they sadly declared that the “spring 2010” opening date is going to be…
I’m not sure who exactly clarified for Universal what months “Spring” usually are, but oh well.
Here is an article from Entertainment Weekly’s PopWatch today that has an introduction video to the big ticket ride, Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey. They apparently filmed new scenes with Daniel, Emma and Rupert (we’re on first name basis, obviously) just for the ride, and it sounds like they made the queue REALLY intense/interesting. Which is good, because I’m sure for at least the first few months you’re looking at a minimum of an hour wait.
This is the link for Universal Orlando’s super fancy official site for the section of the park, in case anyone is interested.
I really want to be one of the crazies there on opening weekend. Anyone wanna go halfsies on tickets??
