Universal Studios and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter was probably my favorite days during the entire trip. There were so many things to see and do! We had a TON of fun. Keep watching for a post about the whole park, but I had to write about our favorite thing first! The Wizarding World of Harry Potter was absolutely AMAZING! I had read a post from another blogger before we left, so I had a good idea of the things that I wanted to see. I have to say that I actually saw most of it too!
Before I tell you about the park, I have to confess that before booking our trip to Florida, I had never seen the Harry Potter Movies! (GASSSPPP) I know. My childhood was not spent growing up with Harry, Ron, and Hermione. My childhood was mostly spent deep into classics like Where the Red Fern Grows, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Giver, and other similar books. I still haven’t read the Harry Potter Books, but it is on my list of things to do!
When Ryan and I started planning the trip, we knew that The Wizarding World was a MUST! We started watching the movies almost immediately after booking our flights. We watched one or two a week for the month leading up to the trip. Having watched all 8 movies right before the trip, I was a little worried about looking like a huge nerd through Diagon Alley and even more in the Hogwarts Castle, but I actually fit in quite well.
I also took the Sorting Hat Quiz to see which house I am in before we left! I am a Ravenclaw, which was no surprise because they are known for their wisdom and book smarts. Ryan is 100% Slytherin with no doubt about it. Since I am a new Harry Potter Fan, Ryan got me my Ravenclaw scarf that I will definitely be sporting this winter!
Universal Studios did such a great job putting together every single detail from the movie. Both sides of the park are extremely accurate and great for Harry Potter Fans of all ages!
Here are the 9 Things you MUST do in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter:
Butterbeer is a treat that was enjoyed throughout a few of the movies! In the park, Butterbeer is available in Frozen, Cold, or Hot. I personally tried the Cold and the Frozen. I personally liked the Frozen better, but Ryan liked the Cold. It is super thick and super sweet, almost like a cream soda.
They also have Butterbeer Ice Cream. We didn’t try it, but it looked like a really great treat for a hot day! All treats are available in both sides of the park and in multiple places on each side, but for accuracy purposes, Ryan insisted on getting it in Hogsmeade. …
