Orlando never had 3D on Forbidden Journey.

Edit: My mistake, I thought you were talking about the 3D effect, not the dementor effect, and I agree I do hope that it makes it over here.

I really hope this new Nintendo area, isn't going to be a "land of simulators", etc.

Or, maybe that's what they're intending? :?r

We do have slight differences. In the first screen in Orlando, the dragon flies away. In Hollywood, he breathes fire on you.

In the second screen, you see the snitch up close, and then a dementor up close. I don't believe either happen in Orlando.

As far as I know, the third screen doesn't have any differences.

I'm sure I'll be corrected if I'm wrong. :lol:

Hopefully the 2D projections will help with some of the motion sickness. I definitely needed to visit Madame Pomfrey after my last ride on FJ.


Does anyone know if Butterbeer is allowed to leave the park? I want to ask my friend to meet me outside with a mug.

Of course it is. You can do whatever you want with it after purchasing.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that no one did. Might be because I'm psychic, might be because they're fictional characters. Take your pick.

Some people may have seen Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik, though. ;)

local school districts are out for winter break now, so I imagine pretty busy. If it rains, probably not nearly as busy though.
