Truly it is worth the wait. But one of our family members had waited nearly 100 minutes in line only to have had the mug of Butterbeer do him in. So, he had to leave us and miss the whole experience. If he could have only waited about 30 more minutes. On the otherhand, it is a wonderful experience for Harry Potter book and movie lovers. The visuals make you feel you are right there with Harry. Go early...the lines only get longer as the day goes on.
