We went to Islands of Adventure the weekend that this attraction opened. it opened on a Friday, and we went on that Saturday. We waited two hours on line to get into the section where Harry Potter is, and then we waited another hour to get on the ride. Sound like a lot? Well, guess what: on opening day, people waited 8 hours to get on the ride. Here's the kicker: I waited 3 hours, but the ride was freakin' awesome. I loved it. I'd say for me it was worth the wait. If you are going to Orlando and you go to Islands of Adventure, make sure you do this ride. Don't let the wait time scare you. Besdies, you spend all of your time inside the castle, and the castle has enough going on to keep you occupied. And P.S. - the wait times are not anywhere near as long as they were when the ride first opened.
