Universal Orlando Resort has begun allowing regular park guests, or Muggles, to venture into the magical Wizarding World of Harry Potter, located at Islands of Adventure.  Last week, only Universal hotel guests were let in to the WWoHP, but starting on Tuesday, general IoA park guests have been admitted into the new addition each morning for a couple hours.

With less than two weeks to go before the Grand Opening on June 18th, the soft openings and continued release of photos and videos are truly amping up the anticipation!  (The new WWoHP billboards on Interstate 4 are awesome!)  In fact, our Wizarding World of Harry Potter page on our website went live yesterday, and we are extrememly excited to be the discount ticket provider for Muggles all over the world!

According to Orlando Attractions Magazine, who have been on site for the openings, “starting at 8 a.m., (an hour before park opening) hotel guests are let into the new land. Then, depending on how many hotel guests chose to visit the Wizarding World that day, some regular guests may be let in anywhere between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. The whole area has been closing at 10 a.m., allowing guests until about noon to make their way out.”

As we previously reported, Attractions Magazine and Inside the Magic have been posting tons of photos and videos, including this one of the Forbidden Journey Ride (Warning: Spoiler Alert!!)
