Harry Potter Questions/attack plan

Universal Orlando: Early entry to Harry Potter

My wife and I are staying @ Royal Pacific from the 16-19th. Can I expect to get in early on the 19th since we are staying onsite? I've got a fairly formidable battle plan ready for the parks but to get in early would certainly make things much more enjoyable.

On a different note, I know I'm not the only one here but does anyone else get a huge thrill out of planning your attack for the parks. There is nothing better than putting together a good plan and executing that plan to perfection. I love taking new people to a park and hearing them say things like "we didn't have to wait in line all day" of "I’ve never seen this part of the park".

Robert I will look for you @ WWOHP opening, if you’re up for it I'll even buy you a potion of the Gods from Mythos. After one of those your guaranteed to write a raving review about anything .

In my experience the early entrance at universal has only ever been for weekdays, but because of harry potter maybe they will change it?
I know some of the vacation packages included breakfast at the three broomsticks, but I thought that was like, right as the park opened?

I would wait in line at Ollivander's to do the wand experience first then I'd hit Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey. The rest of the Island should be done as you wish. Ollivander's is quite small and will probably have a long wait with little to entertain you while Forbidden Journey's queue is really quite an experience (so I'm told)!
