Today I am going to talk to you about Harry Potter World. It was awesome! 🙂 Lots of waiting so you might want to go a hour early. It felt like like you were at Hogwarts!!! For those of you who haven’t read Harry Potter, you may not understand this. It was like you were in the wizard school that Harry Potter went to – Hogwarts.
First we went to the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride. It was about a 60 or 80 minute wait, but it was worth it. It was a little scary because you go up and you think you are going to fall out. You have 3-D glasses on, so it looks like you were in the movie. I closed my eyes for the scary parts.
Next, we went to Ollivander’s Wand Shop. We went to a secret room and Mr. Ollivander was there 🙂 He was looking for someone to come up to his counter and he picked me!!!!! It was so cool. He kept looking for a certain wand for me because the wand chooses the wizard. I kept trying them out and on the third wand, it chose me!!!!! I bought that same wand!!
Then we went to a delicious lunch at Three Broomsticks. We got butter beer just like Harry Potter. It tastes a lot like cream soda. They even have warm butter beer in the winter. I got mac and cheese. After lunch we went to check out the candy shop, Honey Dukes. I got a chocolate frog and blue bubble gum. Claire and Lauren got Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans. They are like jelly beans, but they have every flavor. When I say every flavor, I mean every flavor – ear wax, sprouts, pepper, grass and vomit. They also have good flavors like toasted marshmallow, lemon drop and popcorn. Soap was definitely not good!!
They had a train that looked like the Hogwart’s Express that Harry takes to school. We went to a place where we could take a picture like we were on the train with a scarf and a wand. I wore the Hufflepuff Scarf. I was going to wear the Gryffindor one, but Lauren took that one, what a bummer! 😦 We also went to Dervish and Bangs, another store you read about in Harry Potter. They sold capes that I liked, I wanted the Gryffindor one. There was also a bracelet that had the Hogwarts crest on it that I liked.
It was a wonderful day! We loved it!!!
Bye bye! See you later!
