From N B on June 20, 2014 at 10:54 AMI am fairly sure you will get to experience a soft opening while you are there. I still can't get a straight answer about on-site / early entry to DA, and I called Universal a couple minutes ago....
Even they weren't sure how it works yet... ugh.
From Robert Niles on June 20, 2014 at 11:27 AMAre you staying on-site at Universal Orlando? If so, I think it highly likely that you will get access to Diagon Alley before the public opening. If not, it's definitely worth stopping by to see if you get in, on the day you'd be visiting USF anyway. Follow the hash tag #Potterwatch on Twitter, as that's where people will post news of soft openings.
From N B on June 20, 2014 at 12:24 PMThanks Robert. When I called Universal, I explained I already booked for late July. When I asked about early entry to DA, she put me on hold for a few minutes, came back and said we could only enter early on the day we have breakfast reservations at the Leaky Cauldron, except I didn't make any....
We are staying at the Hard Rock Hotel.
