So I just went there yesterday, and I loved it. There were like TONS of people, and we stood in a line for 90 minutes to go on the Hogwarts Forbiddon Journey ride. Yu went inside the castle while waiting in line, and saw the potions door, DADA room, Dumbledore's study, and a few statues. The ride was awesome. It was like this green screen thing.

The souvenirs were really expensive so I just got pictures. In Hogsmeade, they had The Three Broomsticks, Olivanders, Honeydukes, Zonkos, The robe shop, and the quill, book, parchment store which you couldnt go inside cause it was for show. I bought Hermione's wand for myself, Ginny's for my cousin, and Voldemort's for my friend.

I did try butterbeer, and it was so YUMMY!!!!!! I loved it. I got the frozen kind in a souvenir mug. From Zonkos, I bought Pepper Imps, which is basically cinnamon hard candy. The chocolate frogs were 20$ each, way too expansive. I didn't buy anything from Zonkos, but they had Extendable Ears, trick combs, and tons of stuff.

The Three Brooksticks was a restaurant with a long line. Actually, everything had a long line...but totally worth it. I didn't go the Hungarian Horntail ride, but the Flight of the Hippogriff was nice. No famous people, but I still had a lot of fun!

:)

ahh lucky, that sounds awesome! isn't Ollivanders in Diagon Alley though? Hopefully i can go someday. and try butterbeer. and some bookstores sell chocolate frogs for a lot cheaper than that. i got some from Borders before it closed, and they were $3. they might have them at Barnes & Noble if you want to try them.
Oh someone that went said the Hungarian Horntail ride is really scary anyway. like a little too scary. so you didn't miss out on much.

Yeah, they kinda messed it up. Like in Hogwarts, the kitchens were not behind he fruit painting

Wow Arti, that sounds really exiting! That's kind of annoying though, that everything was that expensive... they think that no matter the price, people will buy Hary Potter stuff. Very sorry J.K Rowling and Wizarding World, but I'm not willing to be homeless just so I can taste your Chocolate Frogs.. (;

I know right! I hate, really hate how everything is so expensive! Would it really kill them to make a few things cheaper?

Well, butterbeer is kinda like a root beer float, KINDA. But then there's something different.

Just a question, in the books is butterbeer supposed to be cold or warm?

Kate*~FlyingOnABroom~* (bookluver2000) | 1908 comments Mod
i'm not sure, it sounds like somethign that would be warm or cold cuz butter makes it sound warm and beer makes it sound cold

they say its warm in the books...it always warms them up when they go to hogsmeade. it usually mentions that with Harry at least.

You're right nikos it's always wam in the books, but who wants a warm drink when it's 80 degrees and sun is blasting out? That's what florida is like most of the timee so they made it cold for a reason - a reason that's called "people will buy more if it's cold" or otherwise "marketing" or "making more appealing to the human race" (;


message 15: by [deleted user] (new)

ah right, forgot about that. here in MN its cold about 70% of the year. so we always have warm drinks. but i would hate having to drink something warm at 80 degrees.

message 42: by Madeline (new)

Madeline | 2 comments I went to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in December for Schoolies with a friend, and absolutely loved it. we went on every ride heaps of times, and the lines were long for us. I didn't mind waiting for an hour and a half for the Forbidden Journey ride, since we were walking through the castle, it made it so much better. The Chcoolate frogs were $10 when I went there, and I didn't think the merchandise was overly expensive. That was over four months ago, so maybe they've raised the prices.I bought a lot of stuff on my holiday, like so much stuff I was worried I wasn't going to be able to get it back to Australia. Definitely going back there one day :)
