Universal is saying that Hogwart's Express will be in technical rehearsal until it fully opens on July 8th, & open a few hours a day during the technical rehearsal.. Diagon Alley will not be opened for technical rehearsals.

I think I just o oiled myself.. ;) ...... Bring it on universal!!!! This is always an exciting time to hear regular visitors' reactions. They will be the people who decide if we get a ministry of magic expansion and get rid of Fear Factor and maybe (Maybe!!!!!!!!!!) Men in Black. Let's face it, Men in Black's hey day was a while back now. When they took out Jaws, that proved to me that any ride was possible to be taken out... Only time will tell. Very exciting times for universal... They are going through what Michael Eisner would call a "Disney Decade."

I love how there's now a good little back story to the car that crashed into the tree. I know it's featured in the movies, but this even gives it a better explanation to those who don't follow the books and/or movies

Will be experiencing everything this upcoming week! Looking forward to many lines and crowds of people, but it will be worth it! Right?

Universal Orlando switched up & soft opened Diagon Alley early this afternoon. Gringotts is not open for softs though.

I have read from reliable sources on the net that when the ride opens in earnest you'll only be allowed 1 trip on the train per day - has anyone who has visited heard about this?
