And it appears so are the celebs who attended the grand opening of the theme park in Universal City on Tuesday.

Vanessa Hudgens and Mindy Kaling both made an appearance at the star-studded event looking cute and ready to go on rides.

Vanessa was also totally Coachella-ready with her crop top, maxi skirt, and wavy hair. OF COURSE.

Meanwhile, Mindy kept it chic in black leather skinnies with a matching blazer and sensible suede shoes to make it easy to run from one attraction to the next.

Sure, maybe Harry Potter World in Florida is still the bigger one with more stuff, but whatever, shut up, focus on the positive.

Park opens to the public April 7!!!

Don't Look, Demi! Mandy Moore & Ex Boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama Reunite At Universal Studios!

These exes are reunited!

Should Demi Lovato be worried??

Wilmer Valderrama spent Sunday night with his ex Mandy Moore at Universal Studios' Halloween Horror Nights!

Just as friends, you guys!

So when Mandy snapped a selfie with Wilmer and her BFF Raina Penchansky (above), she even captioned it:

"Also, I've know this goof (aka @wilmervalderrama) since I was 15! And @rp1313 has been my bff for nearly 12 years…. So many indelible memories and stories with these 2. Always fun to catch up with an #HHN run. 💗🎃🎃"🎃🎃💗"

You may or not remember the two dated over 15 years ago, and were coupled up from 2000 to 2002.

And their relationship stirred a whole lot of controversy because the 31-year-old songstress was only 16 at the time while her BF was 20. Then years later, Wilmer dished about their sex life on Howard Stern's radio show, which caused a slight riff between the two.

Scandalous!!

Well, it sounds like with the exes are still friends, especially if they're hanging out all together and posting about it on Instagram.

And just in case you're not convinced there isn't something more brewing, Wilmer is happily with DemDem, and Mandy is reportedly dating Dawes' Taylor Goldsmith!

Check out another shot of their hangout in the gallery (above)!
