We spent the weekend at Universal Studios. We were so excited to visit the Harry Potter area. It was amazing. It was like walking into the book or movie!
We got in a short line for something. It turned out to be Olivander’s Wand Shop. We got picked for the wand ceremony. I had to cast a spell to make flowers grow and they wilted.
I tried butter beer and LOVED it.
I even braved the two big Harry Potter rides. Likely I won’t ride them again but I did them!
We were up super early the next day and had pancakes in the hotel room.
We got to the park early for the special hotel guest entry. We were picked to be the family of the day. They gave us badges that said “Opening Family 2016” which caused quite a few belly laughs. We got to open the park for the day and then head off to explore. Grandma and Grandpa were able to come over and join our experience.
I loved the Hogwarts Express.
The Jurassic Park area was amazing. I loved all the dinosaurs.
We spent a lot of time casting spells.
I love my new wand and all the magic I can do with it.
We had to wait in line a few times since the passes didn’t allow fast pass lines on the Harry Potter rides.
More Hogwarts Express!
I even grew up a little! I rode the Hippogryph all by myself. I even waited in the long line. I got the front row to myself. It was EPIC!
We did a line walkthrough of Forbidden Journey. It was so cool to take our time and enjoy all the little touches they have added to make it so amazing.
We played not he Night Bus.
We saw JAWS!
I was so excited to come home and try on my new robes. I am Slytherin all the way, a mini Draco Malfoy if you will.Â
A photo of me scared out of my mind!
A much happier me blasting aliens on Men in Black!
