Wizards and Witches Abound

One of the most exciting parts about this trip to Disney was the day we planned on going to Universal.  I haven't been ever and Mr. J hasn't gone for years.  We probably would not have made the journey except for one thing...The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. 

I have read all of the books and seen all of the movies.  I don't know when Mr. J got hooked but he was just as excited to see this last movie as I was.  Thus, when we first heard about Universal's Harry Potter park we knew we had to pay it a visit.

The park was built as the town of Hogsmeade.   It was small but so cool and detailed.  It by far surpassed all of the other sections of Universal.  We go a demonstration of getting a wand.  You know the one does pick you!

 I had to try the Butter Beer.  It was so good.  I go the frozen version and it was was like a butterscotch shake.  I have a recipe and I am going to be making it all through October. 

 Other than the three rides in this area there wasn't a whole lot to do.  However, we had so much fun just looking at all of the details and decorations.

 It was one heck of a candy store!

 It was a great day, even though it wasn't Disney. 
Any fan of Harry Potter would love this park.


  1. I'm SO jealous! I can't wait to go visit as well. I'm not sure who's more excited by the idea - me or my children. Looks like you had a great time.

  2. Oooh, what fun! i'm a harry potter fan, too. My girlfriend and I keep saying we're going on a girls trip there....we should!

  3. I haven’t seen the last 2 parts yet! Can’t wait! They are not showing it in the cinema anymore so I’ll have to watch it at home. My hubby is not a fan so it’s going to be me and a whole bunch of popcorn!
    This park looks like lots of fun, but it think I would be stuck in the candy store!

  4. A few of my friends just got back from Florida and they check this out too! They said it was really neat, and they loved the Butterbeer!

  5. I just want one hour unsupervised in that candy store :)

  6. FUN! I'm so jealous - going to "Hogsmeade" is on our list of things to do. Is the recipe for Butterbeer one that you can share?! I'd love love love to try it sometime!
