Last summer, Chris and I took a fabulous, magical (excuse the pun...) trip to see the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Let's relive our time there via photo-essay, shall we?
Outside the entire park! The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is one of the worlds inside Universal Studios.
Waiting in line. We enter Universal Studios before the Wizarding World is even open, so we have to wait outside for a bit. Totally worth it!
The doors open, we pass under the sign for Hogsmeade!
The shops loom above us, covered with fake snow--surreal in the stifling heat of Orlando, Florida.
Not all of the storefronts are functioning stores, but it doesn't matter at all--they are so cool to look at!
Time to go to Hogwarts!
Where to go for lunch? Perhaps I'll pop into the Hogs Head?
As the afternoon crowds become overwhelming I decide to hide out in the Three Broomsticks and grab a butterbeer.
The shops all light up as the daylight wanes, and my favorite window display is the one for Honeydukes.
We pass by Hogwarts again on our way out of the park--exhausted but so satisfied!
