I’m glad it wasn’t that good of a commercial; it leaves me wanting MORE! :) Dan’s part cracks me up for some reason. Haha.

I must concede that I was disappointed by the ad and frankly considered it rather corny.

the commercial wasn’t that great but it will still be amazing. i really want to go this summer but 1) i don’t know anyone to go with me that would want to go that badly 2) it’s going to be mobbed for a long time and that may take some of the fun out of it. there are so many parts of it that sound cool. trying butterbeer and other harry potter foods and going through the shops

I just wish it showed a little bit more of the park, but it was a nice little tease all in all.

YAY! I love that they put Dan in there! He looks much more mature than what he did in HBP

We were just at Universal a few weeks ago and what is already done looks awesome! From several of the rides you can see into “Hogsmeade” and everything is very authentic looking. I could not believe what a great job they have done recreating Hogwarts Castle. I cannot wait until it opens!

That was absolutely terrible…no offense to the folks at Universal. It just doesn’t seem like they are in touch with their audience at all. Many of us on here could have come up with a better commercial. I’d hate to think I spent that much money for a Super Bowl commercial.
