What's your opinion???

How do you think the crowds at DISNEY will be affected by the opening of Harry Potter at IOA mid-June through July?

Possibly thinking about a trip this summer.

I would think they will be higher at WDW because if you're going to make a special trip to Harry Potter World, why not zip over to Disney as well.

It used to be "Jan 2010" but lately all the commercials have said Spring.

I've been hearing mid-June...which is pushing it for spring, but I guess if it's by June 20..lol.

That's what I'm thinking (more crowded at WDW) and exactly why I asked for other opinions.

I hadn't thought of Harry Potter attracting more people to WDW, I had been thinking just the opposite! We are going at the beginning of June and I had been disappointed to learn that HP probably wouldn't be open yet, because I was hoping it would open while we were there and draw the crowds away from WDW! But I guess that makes sense that people would make the trip mostly for HP, but spend a couple of days at Disney as well. So maybe our timing will be okay afterall!

I only enjoyed 3 things at Universal and one of them isn't there any more.

I really have no desire to go back there, either.

I've never been to IOA, but will want to do Seussville when we go to Harry Potter. Not planning to go to Harry Potter this summer even if we go to Disney when it is opened.

What are your dates?

Hey Sonya,

Off-topic, but it looks like the board is about to hit 100,000 posts!

Hey, Aly! I've been watching those numbers rise over the last few months but I figured it would take us a while.

I agree with the others - if you're in Orlando and you're doing Universal, you're probably going to make time to pop into one if not more of the Disney parks.
