I want to go so badly! This should definitely be one of my birthday presents in the coming year! I really want to go but I have a feeling that it’ll be expensive. I hope they expand it.

Expansion would be good. As it is, you can definitely see it all in one day. My son went on the main ride 3 times and I went on it twice, even with a long line to wait on. And we waited about an hour-and-a-half to get into Ollivander’s. The only thing we missed was the Flight of the Hippogriff, which is only for little kids who weigh under a certain number of pounds (they don’t tell you this in the advertising). It would be great if they took some of the Hogsmeade shops that are now just windows that you can look into and turned them into real shops that you can enter – not necessarily to buy merchandise, there’s plenty of that, but just to look at stuff that looks like the movie sets. I’d also like to see a lot more roleplayers about – not just Ollivander, the Durmstrang and Beauxbatons dancers and the Frog Choir. And a little bandshell or something where you can listen to live Wrock – or at least acoustic acts like the Singing Crones in the Hog’s Head.

I’ve been lucky enough to go twice and it was AMAZING both times! The first time was so hot and crowded, but still breath-taking as we took in everything. I can’t wait to see the expansion, even though it will mean more money. I think the experience will be worth it!

I’m sad to report that nothing happened today! I got there at 9am, waited till 9:23 the day it was officially opened, and nothing.Went in and asked they said they weren’t planning anything.How could they not? Sorry guys, but I think muggles are running the place.Universal for shame on you :(

An expansion would be nice ,It was impressive when I went (NEVER will I forget rounding the corner and seeing Hogwarts ,still brings tears to my eyes ;D ) ,but there is not much to do ,unless you want to spend money, other than going on rides (and I only went on the main ride ) but I would like to have seen more role-playing ,or more rides ( A Gringotts ride ,hint ,hint…) Or the shops being open ,not to buy ,but to see like role-playing witchesand wizards doing shoping ,maybe (this is Hogsmead,is it not?)
But being able to see and touch Hogwarts was surreal =)
