Doors to the Wizarding World open June 18, Forbidden Journey details revealed

UPDATE: Universal has updated its Vacation Package page, which no longer allows purchasing the Potter vacation package as early as May 28th. The earliest available now is June 18th (the Grand Opening).

Universal has announced that the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park will open on June 18th, 2010! Additionally, we received more details on the highly-anticipated Harry Potter and The Forbidden Journey ride that is set to be the landmark attraction inside the Wizarding World.

MuggleNet staff member Eric toured the Forbidden Journey ride Wednesday. SEE HIS REPORT HERE!

We’ve also JUST recorded a special MuggleMiniCast to discuss all of these breaking developments. Listen to it at this link (MP3, 13.6 MB) or update your iTunes feed.

After reading Eric’s report, check out the first four images from within the Forbidden Journey:

If you purchased a Wizarding World vacation package, and it begins earlier than June 18th, your package will still be honored. Call Universal for more details.
