It would be wonderful if Michael Gambon could wear his Dumbledore robes on the rides! That would be quite a sight!! I hope that we get lots of video and photos of the event.

While the thought of being there, when the cast will be, is wonderful the reality of it is that it will be a nightmare. Long lines, gobs of people and it will be very, very hot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m excited! We went for the soft opening yesterday, but I’m sure the crowds will be absolutely horrendous on Friday. We are going again on Monday to ride the rides, so maybe there will be special appearances all week!
