The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

My cousin, Cyndy, and I took a ride up to Orlando so we could see the new Harry Potter World at Universal Studios.

All Abourd the Hogswart's Express

Colorful candy at the HoneyDukes 

The Flight of the Hippogriff roller coaster brings you past this guy.

We ate lunch at the Three Broomsticks

I had ribs, corn on the cob, and pumpkin juice

Cyndy tried the cornish pasties and ButterBeer.  Everything was really good.

Happy Bartender at the The Hogshead Pub

Its been cold in Florida this winter....

We loved the houses

Lots of fun shops to explore.

Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey takes you through Hogwart's Castle - very cool.

Bring your own stamps for your postcards, and maybe you can get them postmarked at Hogsmeade, although we never found out where.

So cool!!! I really want to go there. What did the butterbeer taste like? Pumpkin juice sounds really good too.

Butterbeer had a vanilla taste. The pumpkin juice I tried was fizzy. Both were delicious!

What a fun post! Be sure to send it to Disney. They'll love the artistic endorsement. I want a pastie!

That looks like a lot of fun. It's really cool that they've built that. Did you have any of those wild jelly beans?

Cyndy said...

Let's go back!!!!

I didn't try any jelly beans or candy - sticking to my New Year's Resolutions.
