Universal Orlando to webcast Harry Potter grand opening

June 15, 2010, 11:28 AM · Last week I wrote on Facebook that all theme parks should live-stream their attraction opening ceremonies on the Web. (As Disneyland did for the World of Color premiere.)

Well, Universal Orlando's not going keep Harry Potter fans around the world in the dark. Universal announced today that it will webcast the Wizarding World of Harry Potter grand opening at www.universalorlando.com/HarryPotterNews.

There will be two webcasts:

I am still happy about it though, I think everyone should do this!

June 16, 2010 at 9:31 AM · Just an FYI... My e-mail from Universal actually said 9:30 to 10:30 PM EST for the Celebrity Preview live streaming video.
June 16, 2010 at 3:14 PM · Im going to the grand opening on Friday, was just wondering if anyone had an idea of a good time to show up before gates open. I read the garage doesnt open til 5:30am so should I get to the garage even earlier and wait in line there as well?
