The first couple days of our vacation, we went to Universal Studios in Orlando. I have tons of pictures of Harry Potter World, so this post is all about Harry Potter. We did other stuff too, but I'll save that for the next post.
First view of Hogwarts when you walk in the park!
Dervish and Banges: this was the store where you could buy anything Harry Potter.
The view of the castle on the way to the Hogwarts ride
Honeyduke's Sweet Shop
Trying Butterbeer: it was pretty dang good.
The Three Broomsticks: the only restaurant in this area. The Boar's Head next door is just a pub. We ate lunch here. I had Cornish pasties and pumpkin juice, which was gross.
There are three rides in Harry Potter World. Two are roller coasters, so I didn't want to do those and get sick, and then the other ride is inside Hogwarts, and made me really sick. The line into the ride is really cool because you get a tour of the castle, and you see some of the important rooms. The ride was great too, it's just pretty jerky and made us motion-sick. But overall, I loved the atmosphere and the park was awesome!
