I finally opened an email from Thursday. I won as well. I don't know why annual pass holders would enter if they already had a pass and read the rules. I was hoping we'd hook up the Reading girl instead. That was probably her win lost then. She and I are Philly area people.

Thus, Hagrid's hut materializes. Very authentic theming.

Wow.. that's very accurate to the movies!

This whole project confuses me in how it's all going to come together to be anywhere close to the renderings. There's a huge amount of work left to be done in the next year!! Including the retheme to Hogsmeade Village, the Forbidden Forrest, whatever will happen to the current Dragons theme... etc)

I wish Universal would leak out just a litttttleee more information! I guess that might come out with the new movie though.

I know quite a lot about Donkeys!

Someone posted on a different thread - I think it was the HRRR thread - a few weeks ago, claiming to work for USO. Whilst the nature of his post related to HRRR, he also mentioned (to put his post into context) that Dualing Dragons was being themed to a Quidditch game. Now, I don't know Harry Potter, so don't know if that would 'work', and of course can't verify this chaps information, but thought I'd mention it here. I'll see if I can find a link to the post.

Edit:
Found the post HERE
think it's more he knows someone who works there, so again, no telling the reliability of the info, but there you go.

If the donkey is rockin, don't come knockin!

Great to see this ride is coming along so nicely. The colors chosen for this are very bold for the park sky line and I like that idea. I can't wait to see the non-inverting loop and first drop completed.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

This is probably a stupid question, but what does the HP construction mean for Dueling Dragons in the aspect of being open? For example, I am planning to go in May, will I be able to ride the Dragons?

^Of course nobody knows for sure except Universal, but I think there's a very good chance DD will still be open in May. Right now you enter and exit through Jurassic, so it'll probably be the same when you visit in May. ...Now the fall season may be a different story, we'll have to wait and see on that.
