Disneyland's will probably open between Memorial Day and the 4th of July, while Hollywood Studios' will probably open just before Thanksgiving (the Florida parks' peak season is the Thanksgiving-Christmas period).

I will guess that Universal will try to have their new Harry Potter coaster open a few months before DHS's Star Wars Land opens. I was at Universal on Sunday and saw some track assembled.
Top 10 steel: Steel Vengeance, Millennium Force, Maverick, Mako, Incredible Hulk, Banshee, Diamondback, Raptor, SheiKra, Montu
Top 10 wood: Mystic Timbers, Shivering Timbers, Beast, Racer (KI), Viper, American Eagle, Woodstock Express, Blue Streak (CP), Mean Streak (RIP), Wolverine Wildcat
