Well, I was there in October, and it was the best day of our whole little getaway. Even though Rip Ride Rockit was down, we had an awesome time. Lines were significantly shorter, it was a much better park experience, as opposed to F&W at Epcot.
Announcing another opening date is worrying for me though. As I've frequently said, my vacation is planned between May 12th and 19th. The Hard Rock has been sold out now for weeks, which made me question why people were planning on visiting before the ALREADY announced opening date of May 28th. We instead have elected to spend 4 nights at the Hard Rock (Because that was all they had available) and changing hotels halfway through our vacation. I had also read and heard that there would be an annual pass preview day on May 24th, which makes me wonder why they would consider pushing up the opening date. I highly doubt they would be pushing it back, as the Harry Potter packages that they have already sold in anticipation of the May 28th opening date would be null and void.
I do NOT want to see where this is going...I can only imagine they're going to be pushing UP the opening date and I can expect a very crowded vacation at both Universal, Seaworld/Aquatica, and even the World. Pray for me!!!
