Here's how this vacation breaks down for me:
1. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter
2. Everything Else
So that's how I'm going to approach photos. Tonight it will be Potter-y photos and tomorrow night will be everything else.
|The entrance to Hogsmeade. Bliss began here.|
|Peelers posing with the Hogwarts Express. They are working|
on an actual train that will run between the two parks!
|The whole street was enchanting! I had the biggest grin on my face.|
|Inside the Three Broomsticks. This is the spot where Professor|
Slughorn convenes the Slug Club in the movie.
|First good view of Hogwarts Castle. I almost fainted.|
|Hagrid's Hut. This was along the path to the Flight of the Hippogriff coaster.|
|Doesn't it look real?!? So amazingly well done!|
|The entrance to Dumbledore's office. I so wanted to duck|
under the rail and take a photo inside the wings!
|Geeking out in the Owl Post office. Grin, still firmly in place.|
|The Monster Book of Monsters. It moved and snarled!|
|Beautiful! The fake snow was the perfect touch.|
|This was the funny and friendly guy who worked at the entrance|
to the Three Broomsticks (which you can see behind us).
|Honeydukes. I just realized that I forgot to buy a Chocolate Frog! DOH!|
|Zonko's joke shop. They even sold Extendable Ears!|
|Sign for Hogsmeade Station. This was really full of lockers where|
you stored loose items while on the Dragon Challenge - a great roller coaster!
|Another view of the Hogwarts Express. Looks like it needs a good washing to make it gleam!|
|Butterbeer cart. The butterbeer and pumpkin juice were both good, but very sweet!|
|I told Doug that we should move to Orlando so that I could work|
somewhere in Hogsmeade. In reality, I want to live there.
|The alley behind Dervish & Banges. Just thought it was lovely. :)|
