    Does anyone have a good idea of when to show up that first Saturday? (the 15th). That's when I'm planning on going but bouncing back and forth on a game plan.

    So if the garage opens at 6:30 on the 13th, do they allow people to queue up at the parking toll booth prior to that?

    Based on Diagon and such, I'd get to the park as early as possible. On the 13 either stay on property or park somewhere you can get to the resort entry point next to Margaritaville. They'll likely open the gates to CityWalk at 6:30am too, so high tail it to the IoA entrance and stake it out till open. I imagine they'll open the gates early and run some rides (Hulk, FJ, etc) early to draw some crowds away from Hagrid. If they do it like Diagon they'll have sections of Hogsmeade set up for the opening event: a left corral, a center corral, and a right corral. One will fill then the next then the other. At open they'll let in the first corral to the ride then once that group has entered they'll let in the second. Anyone not wishing to ride will be diverted on the bypass bridge.

    I've never done a ride opening day before. Many soft opens and AP previews, but never a grand opening. Should be fun! I'm honestly mulling using my travel credit from work on a room so I can be on-site.

    Not a bad idea! I'd stay at RPR.

    How much does it cost to park there for a day when not staying there?

    This is our plan for opening. I've done both Hogsmeade and Diagon openings. I'm pretty stoked. My friend and I aren't staying on property, but we're staying pretty close by and plan to be at the garage booth hopefully around 6 or a tad earlier. Good luck everyone!

    Is there even a remote chance that visitors may be able to get on it somewhere during the day?

    Will there be a special forum made for pics and spoilers? Or is this just until opening day?

    When guest start riding we'll create two new threads (General Discussion and Reviews/Media) and close this one.

    i'd assume there's a very very small chance that they'll let a few general guests in right toward close of the park 9pm ish. But probably not unless things go perfect. I'd imagine there's quite a few TMs dropping everything and going over now.

    Got my fingers crossed for tomorrow afternoon between work and Weird Al. My hopes are low, as I don't even know if I'll fit.
