I thought out of all the actors, Dan was the most personable. I thought he was great with the kids, calling them by name and even asking one about his loose tooth! What a guy! Bonnie looked like she would rather be somewhere else. I can't wait to visit the park myself!Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Dan is so good with kids!

But then, it *has* been running up to 100 degrees here in South Florida the last few weeks !! You can see how hot all the actors are !! They all look amazing don't they ? What wonderful wonderful people they all are ! I respect them so much. You would not find typical Hollywood young adults behaving this wonderfully !! I make a sweeping bow to the Brits ! Thank you for these fine actors !!!!Avatar Imagepotter_freak_007 says: For those who were wondering Emma was filming a movie, and couldnt make it.Avatar ImageVincenza says: Wow!

He's so sweet with the kids... this will be such a memorable time in the kid's lives. :)Avatar ImageJillxoxo says: Great photos, though between all the pale English skin and the long sleeves, I do hope they were all wearing sunblock and staying hydrated!Avatar Imageharrypotterfreak101 says: That looks so cool! I wish I was there myslef to watch it! I want to purchase my own wand and drink some Butterbeer! The feeling of meeting the actors never gets old! James and Oliver look as micheivous as ever! Dan is so sweet, I never knew he could bond with kids?! That's awesome!Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: Dan <3 And I love the picture at the top :P It made me giggle :) What IS he doing?! :LAvatar ImageI love my Spectra Specs says: OH. MY. GOD!!!! I'm sooooooooo excited for this Christmas when I can go (hopefully)!!!!! :D Wish I could've gone to the opening, it must've been the most amazing thing ever!!!Avatar Imagehar1020 says: Wheres Emma?Avatar ImageGinevra-Ginny says: I wish I could have benn there!Avatar ImageSummerDaize says: Wow that is amazing...I REALLY want to go...but not in the near future...SOMETIME though, of course =D but yeah, why isn't Emma Watson there??? Avatar Imagehewy says: If Emma had not been filming at this point in time it would have been great to see the trio together. Frankly I thought Bonnie looked like she was terrified beyond belief and afraid of being trampled, which considering the amount of people there could have been a distinct possibility. Poor Tom looked like the kids were having a problem seperating the character of Draco with the actor. The twins are by far my favorite characters and they were just super!!!! Can not wait for Sept as I suspect that there will not be the thousands of people as there were today.Avatar Imagelizzardbreath says: what an opportunity for those kids who got to go in first and with the cast, I love dan he's such a genuinely happy, and nice guy you don't see to many of those specially in the acting world. He looked as excited as anyone of those kids to be part of that opening day. It was also nice to see that it was opened by the actual cast not the execs of universal and or warner bros. Avatar ImageRoseann says: That was amazing. I love how they had the twins light the fireworks and like magic it shot out from behind how cool. Good job guysAvatar Imagedevilskinn says: omg, omg, omg... so exciting! Hope one day I'll get there 8->Avatar Imagetjerriam says: i really love you daniel radcliffe..your the best ....Avatar Imagehousemusicbori says: awesome video!! thanks leaky ( :Avatar ImageDawna says: Very cool....hope to make it there!Avatar Imagecoolgirl224 says: I really, really, really want to go, but I can't go this Summer, but mabe during vacation or Halloween!Avatar Imagecoolgirl224 says: I really, really, really want to go, but I can't go this Summer, but mabe during vacation or Halloween!Avatar Imagespiritbound says: omg i so wana go there.
