If anyone has been watching the WinterOlympic Games, you have seen several ads for WWoHP every day. 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

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!

FYI…Universal always offers the “front of the line” pass when you stay at one of their hotels.

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.

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. : (
