    It does look like there's a lack of greenery in that area, even though ours has a large head start in that regard. Maybe it'll grow in? I'm more concerned with what appears to be a visible office building as a backdrop to the land...

    I don't like that car being right in front of Hogwarts either.

    I've never been to UO, so I wouldn't know.

    Benches are nothing. One time when I was at the park, it was pouring raining, and it was really chilly. Almost as an apology for the weather, Universal offered free hot chocolate and complimentary park tickets to the guests. Awesome.

    I am very excited! I'm actually waiting for Employee Preview Night (though I'm no longer an employee) next month. I'm going with my sister and my mom.

    From what I've seen, the only area that offers total immersion is within Hogsmede facing the castle. From photos anywhere else, showbuildings, office buildings and other park areas are easily visible. Maybe there's going to be more trees planted before the official opening, but it seems to kill an otherwise excellent amount of theming.

    Well then bring it on. I plan on stopping by Universal Hollywood in a couple years so the more the merrier.

    I have a strange question that I can't find an answer to - does Universal have an bicoastal passes? I have a power pass for Orlando, but I am considering a trip to California next winter and might be interested in upgrading if it were available and made sense.

    Universal could remove the old prop plaza area that they used back in the 70's. That was the place with the giant props and stage coach in front of moving background. It's pretty much beyond Harry Potter and the tram tour queue.
