Photos of crowds waiting to get in to Wizarding World on Grand Opening day

Yesterday we reported that 5,000 people turned out for the Grand Opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park.  We had learned that many were told they’d have to wait upwards of 8 hours to just get into the Wizarding World area.

Now, thanks to the Orlando Sentinel, we have these two photos showing the MASSIVE line in the Universal CityWalk area:

Line extending south of the resort
Line on opposite side of Universal’s river

Keep in mind that these pictures don’t even show the lines that were inside Islands of Adventure!

We’re hearing that wait times today are still high but less painful than Friday’s.
