I know what you’re thinking…YAY WEDDING PICTURES.
My friends, you could not be more wrong.
Last week, my Hogwarts letter FINALLY arrived and I got to go to Harry Potter world with my BFFs and I was in fangirl heaven! If I had to choose one word that describes Harry Potter world it would be MAGICAL. I have way more than one word, but I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking.
You have to walk through the brick wall to enter Diagon Alley and you seriously feel like you are entering another world! Weasleys’ Wizzard Wheezes is the first shop we went into. They had every type of candy and toy from Nosebleed Nougat to Extendable Ears! We also passed by Flourish & Blotts, Madame Malkin’s, and Florean Fortescues.
Before boarding the Hogwarts Express, we visited Gringotts and took a tour of the vault. While we were there Bellatrix and ‘He Who Must Not Be Named’ started chasing us and we had to escape on a dragon with the help of Harry, Ron and Hermione!
We made a pittstop in Hogesmeade before heading up to the castle. We had lunch at The Three Broomsticks, where we tried the Hogs Head Brew (found only in Hogsmeade!). We also visited Honeydukes which was full of so many different candies I thought we would never get out of there with money left in our pockets!
We finally made it to the castle where we visited Dumbledore’s office, the Griffyndor Common Room, and the Quidditch Pitch. It was so magical – THE PEOPLE IN THE PAINTINGS MOVE! We saw the house point hourglasses, the triwizard tournament cup, the mirror of erisid, and so much more.
I cannot get over how REAL the experience was. I had high expectations going in, but the actual experience was far better than I ever could have imagined. Universal NAILED IT. Every detail was exactly like the book described and as a visitor you truly felt that you had entered a magical world where dragons exist and you can cast spells and fly on broomsticks!
I can’t wait to go back & do it all again. I could go a million times & never get tired of it!
How many times have you read the Harry Potter series or watched the movies? (my number is 7 million times )
Have you been to Harry Potter World? What was your favorite part?
