Harry Potter World - Orlando

The magical world that is Harry Potter. As one of the BIGGEST fans I had to make my way to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park in Orlando. It's really everything I want and more. I truly felt like I was walking into Hogsmeade and meeting my friends Harry, Ron and Hermione for Butterbeer. 

My real life fantasies came to life in Orlando. Magic was in the air and the smile on my face was permanent. 

I started at Universal Studios and entered Diagon Alley. All your favorite shops were down the cobble stone and even in 85 degree weather, I felt like I plopped right in the heart of London on a crisp winter's day. The amount of detail that was put into the structure and planning is unbelievable. 

I made my way to Harry Potter and Escape from Gringotts ride (which was my favorite).

We took the Hogwarts Express over to Hogsmeade on the Island of Adventures side. I almost believed that I would be meeting Hagrid on the other end and finding my acceptance letter... :) 

The castle was bigger and better than I could've imagined but the greenhouse was my favorite - mostly because Herbology is one of my favorite classes! 

If you get the opportunity to visit this magical, mystery land jump. It's an experience like nothing else. To me, Harry Potter is more than just fantasy. It taught me to be brave and fight for the ones I love; to value my education and that it's ok for girls to be smart and successful; and above all else, to love and support your family and friends for they are the ones who will be there until the end.
