YAYYY!Avatar Imagelunalovegood97 says: That's awesome! I can't wait to find out!Avatar Imagebellaohbella says: March 25th are we sure its not May 25thAvatar Imagemiss molly says: My guess the last week in May for the big grand opening but these parks usually do a soft opening for the FL resident annual pass holders a few weeks early. My sister, who is a travel agent, is selling the Harry Potter hotel package which start Memorial Day weekend 5-28 thru 6-31. So they will definitely be opened by then. You get a commemorative Grand Opening Ticket, Breakfast at the Three Broomsticks, Early Park admission to experience HPWW. Travel agents have these great packages for really good prices. They start at something like $289 per adult for 4 days.Avatar Imageleigia says: Nice to finally have the date set.Avatar Imageblue_rogue says: Finally! It had better be open the week of May 16.Avatar Imagenealiezealbie says: march 25th! good i'll be tuned into leaky. personally this whole thing has been really quite annoying...they revealed the day they will reveal the day it is opening....why cant they just reveal the actual date!?! oh well. i'll still be going! :)Avatar Imagegingerr_kat says: it'll be good to find out when it's opening.Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: Finally we are getting a date!Avatar ImageGinnyPotter811 says: it's about time! i can't wait to go!Avatar Imagehallows_or_horcruxes says: wwwwwwweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeAvatar Imageericaeeks says: Really?
