A Photo-Essay: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

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?

Universal Studios by Danalynn C
Outside the entire park!  The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is one of the worlds inside Universal Studios.

Waiting in Line by Danalynn C
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!

Entering Hogsmeade by Danalynn C
The doors open, we pass under the sign for Hogsmeade!

Hogsmeade by Danalynn C
The shops loom above us, covered with fake snow--surreal in the stifling heat of Orlando, Florida.

Hogsmeade Shop by Danalynn C
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! 

The Hogshead by Danalynn C
Where to go for lunch?  Perhaps I'll pop into the Hogs Head? 

The Three Broomsticks by Danalynn C
As the afternoon crowds become overwhelming I decide to hide out in the Three Broomsticks and grab a butterbeer.  

Honeydukes by Danalynn C
The shops all light up as the daylight wanes, and my favorite window display is the one for Honeydukes.

Hogwarts at Night by Danalynn C
We pass by Hogwarts again on our way out of the park--exhausted but so satisfied!
