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.

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…

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.

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.
