Visiting Hogwarts... a trip of a lifetime!

/ Thursday, March 8, 2012


While in Florida for the Disney Princess Half Marathon, we visited Hogwarts or what is called, "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter". Yes, I've read all the books, watched all the movies, and owls are my fave --- well, they were my fave wayyyyy before the movie. Let's just say, it all started with a Tootsie Roll pop. Anyways, Cindy, Dawnabelle, Karen, Trish, and I ABSOLUTELY had to make a trip to Hogwarts. It was magical. I'll let the photos speak for themselves...





On our way to Hogwarts, we walked through the Dr. Seuss Land. So much color and so much fun!







We followed the signs, made a few stops for photos on the way...




We were greeted with the Hogwarts Express and Platform 9 3/4!



Excitement filled the air in Hogsmeade... butter beer, owl posts, wands!











We visited Honeydukes to check out some themed candy and took some portraits...











And, of course, tried the butter beer... and, boy, it was tasty! Similar to a cream soda with a cream topping. It was delicious!







We made the trek to the main ride and stopped for a group photo...

The ride was great... the line? Not so much. BUT TOTALLY WORTH IT! We ended our visit with a few more photos in Hogsmeade...




I heard they are in the process of building another Hogwarts in Universal Hollywood by 2015. EEEKS! We had such a great time... I can't wait to visit again!
