For any Harry Potter fan news that they were creating a section of Universal Studios dedicated to our fandom sent us into a tizzy. The idea of walking through places from our favorite places (albeit fictional) were like a dream come true. And it was, I went back in 2011. But then they announced that they were expanding The Wizarding World of Harry Potter to included even more.
Not only would we get a glimpse of the Hogwarts castle and Hogsmede but Diagon Alley in all it’s glory would be brought to life too. It’s more amazing than I could ever communicate even with my giant photo filled post here and gushing gushing gushing!
Let me tell you after visiting at the beginning of the month it is JUST as magical as you’d imagine. You guys the attention to detail is something else. Like my pictures are cool but when you’re there your jaw will drop!
I shared about the first installment of the Wizarding World a few years ago in my first trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter post but even after just a few short years there is so much to say and show you! We were there for three days this past month with #FamilyForward and while that was enough to experience it, everything was SO cool I felt like I could go back and take in every little inch super slowly and never get tired of it!
For today I will just show you the awesomeness in pictures. I want YOU to be able to experience it without my constant gabbering in your ear. But I do have SO much to say since I don’t want you to miss out on any of the awesomeness since I know that will be so easy with so many pictures.
Just take it in. And then go start aggressively saving for your own trip because it is TOTALLY WORTH IT. No really TOTALLY WORTH IT. If this post makes you happy, then you can’t even imagine how stepping on those streets and experiencing the world will be. I want to go back already!
Don’t worry I won’t leave you hanging. I have PLENTY to SAY about all the awesomeness that is the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando. But I’m saving that for later. But let’s say for any Harry Potter fan, this place feels like home.
And boy do I have a lot to say. I have even MORE pictures and a page full of post titles for all the different things (the food, what to wear, what to skip, what not to miss, photo spots, etc.) that I want to share about Harry Potterland and Universal Orlando as a whole.
Make sure to check back in since I will be sharing my Top Ten Musts for the Wizarding World next week. I’ll also be sharing one of my super favorite aspects the interactive wand features. Along with videos and some insider tips.
But for now I just want you to Take.It.All.In. These are just a fraction of the pictures that I have to share. And seriously limited them to just these was super hard. I’ll be sharing more in blog posts here and on my instagram.
I can’t wait to go into even more depth and share all the fun details of Gringotts, Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes, The Leaky Cauldron, The Hogwart’s Express, and so much more! I could do detailed tours for each of those. Would you guys want that?
So fun right? You might just want to subscribe to my newsletter so you don’t miss a single post since I have lots planned! I can’t wait to share all of it. Thanks SO much to Family Forward for the amazing trip and Universal Orlando for sponsoring the retreat to make it experience more affordable for our family it was seriously the most magical ever and we just cannot wait to go back!
