The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Last week, I went on vacation to Orlando with some of my very favorite friends from college. I had an amazing time, and over the next few days, I’m planning a couple posts recapping the things we did. First up? The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios. I mean, why wouldn’t four 25 to 26 year-olds make this a priority while on vacation? It might make me nerdy, but I will proudly admit that I thought it was a pretty amazing re-creation of Harry Potter’s world. Here are some highlights.

The adventure begins:

All aboard the Hogwart’s Express:

Around the village of Hogsmeade – I loved all the snow-covered rooftops. So beautiful.

I like to think I’d be in Gryffindor:

The castle. Doesn’t this look amazing? They did such a good job on this.

Drinking butterbeer. A must.

Hermione’s dress in a shop window:

The Hogwart’s choir performing:

Inside Honeyduke’s sweet shop. This was also very, very cool – so colorful and imaginative.

And, lastly, exploring Zonko’s joke shop. Again, such wonderful creativity and amazing details:

And now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to re-read the entire Harry Potter series…yet again. Some things just don’t get old.
