That's my first reaction. I didn't know she was taking the picture... this was not posed...
My best friend (who took these pictures on the left) and I (right) taking a photo with the conductor who had a British accent!
This is at the entrance.
Hogwarts! This is where the new Harry Potter adventure ride is (which is terrifying). It took everything about Harry Potter that was scary and put it into one ride. Great fun though!
The Greenhouse which is part of the waiting line in Hogwarts
The entrance to Dumbledore's office which is also in Hogswarts castle
The had a bunch of awesome talking photos in Hogwarts and you could never tell who was going to be speaking!
Yup, that's THE Sorting Hat! He's at the end of the Hogwarts castle right before you board the ride!
Every hour or so, they have the two other schools come out and perform and then the Hogwarts choir sings
Ashley (my bestie on the left) and I (right) in line to get into Olivanders.
Olivanders was totally worth the wait. You must visit it!
The owls right out of Olivanders.
The entrance to the Dragon Challenge (the old dueling dragons)
A staircase in Honeydukes
Zoink's joke shop was adorable!
Wanna be Hermy? Get yourself a Pigme (spelling) Puff! They were super soft.
I'll get around to putting my pictures up in a bit but I wanted you all to see how magical it really is. My husband made a wonderful observation about Harry Potter. He said, the reason he thought it held so much significance for us is because it is the first part of a theme park that was created about something that was our generation. Marvel, Seuss, and Toonland all feature attractions that are timeless but none which were made during our time. Harry Potter came out right around the time I was his age. As he grew, I grew with him. That's what makes it even more magical. It's our generation's gold child and to see it come to life is something truly amazing. I really hope you can all find your way there!
