Whoever does has to tell us ALL about it!!!Avatar Imagevampireanneke says: I went through the process for booking a vacation and if you select the May 28th date, it includes a 'Commerative Openning Day Ticket' So I would say openning day is May 28th.Avatar Imagejosiejellyfish says: I absolutely have to go! It would be amazing. Just have quite a bit of saving ahead of me as I’m from New Zealand...Avatar Imagegingerr_kat says: i think i can arrange going. it would probably be later in the summer. i'm excited but large crowds would take away from it a little. Avatar ImageLauraKeaton says: Hmmm, I'd consider May 28th to be much closer to summer than spring, but maybe the want to wait til the big summer vacation season for the ticket packages. I imagine they'll open the Harry Potter part sooner...you'd think they'd want to have a few slower weeks to work out all the kinks before dealing with mobs of summer visitors.Avatar Imagenealiezealbie says: whooo! so we sort of have a date!!!! :D i cant wait! im so there!!!Avatar ImageBookNookKara says: I'm going March 2011 during my senior year of college with my fiance!

They have been running 15 second spots and 30 second spots. The latter are mostly the "SuperBowl" ad with the original opening and other openings. The one I saw this afternoon opens with the boy and girl in makeshift capes and crooked twigs for wands playing and then big flash and the kids are on brooms at Hogwarts with the rest from the SB ad. They wouldn't be buying that much airtime during the Olympics if opening wasn't very near Avatar Imagehermione06 says: sounds great (especially the breakfast at the three broomsticks)! I wonder how much the package will be...Avatar ImageNumeroUnoFan says: STOKEDAvatar ImageI love my Spectra Specs says: SOOOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED TO GO THERE!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D :DAvatar ImageFresca says: I hope to get ther next year. The hotel package sounds really good. I read recently that they will have a Filch's Emporium of Confiscated Goods. What a hoot!Avatar ImagePadme_Skywalker says: FYI...Universal always offers the "front of the line" pass when you stay at one of their hotels.Avatar ImageMissHagrid says: Dude! That totally rocks! I hope I can come up with enough money by then. Avatar ImageSiriusGirl19 says: Nearly 300 buck per person..not including plane tickets...greeeedy aren't we universal? I'd pay that much if I was guaranteed to meet one of the actors or JK, but otherwise....meh that price is ridiculous in my opinion.Avatar Imageclintisagain says: pretty much booking flights.....Avatar Imageblue_rogue says: My greatest fear has been that the park would open on Memorial Day weekend, the week after I'm going to be in Orlando. That May 28 date for the travel package is making me nervous. : (Avatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: Sweetness!!Avatar Imagejhangelgurl says: :sigh: if only i had the money and someone to go with Avatar ImageMischief.Managed says: Oh wow! I've been waiting forever! I can hardly wait to go!Avatar ImageOpheliasmom says: Reservations have been made...Next stop is air reservations...I am so there in June....Whoo-hooo!!!Avatar ImageToNkS_rip says: id love 2 go there. but i doubt ill be able 2 anytime soon. costs loads...Avatar ImageDrome says: I wanna go there... : << No I wish I lived in USA. ://Avatar ImageHermonie says: I am sooooo excited!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageMoose_Starr says: I squeed for real about this. ohmygosh it is finally becoming a reality.
