Harry Potter Theme Park

I know I've been away for quite some time. I've been so busy between working full time and going to college. I'm attending Southwest Florida College as a web desgin major. It's also gotten me back into another passion of mine, photography.

I'm on vacation this week so I went to Orlando to see the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal's Islands of Adventure. I don't want to go into the gruesome details of how bad the crowds were due to me visiting 3 days after the official opening. However, I do have pictures posted on my blog if you are interested. I also did some product shots of the stuff I purchased there, such as the chocolate frogs, Butterbeer and Pumpkin juice. I haven't photographed my wands yet.

Hello !!

Thank you for publishing the pictures you took of The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter !!! I would LOVE to go there with my sister but finances are unfortunately quite prohibitive at least for now. My sister and I have read all the books, have seen all the movies and are definitely into Harry. Thank you again. It is so nice to meet someone who also enjoys this wonderful series of books and movies.

I'm glad you enjoyed the photographs. My advice to you would be don't be in a hurry to get there; wait until the magic dies down a little. It was wall to wall muggles.

I stood in line for most of the day. People came form all over the world. I spoke to people from all over the place while waiting in line. The street down Hogmeade is very narrow and all the shops were very small. It was clostrophobic city. They ran out of the owl postcards that you can have postmarked and sent from Hogsmeade and they ran out of Hermione's wand, which is the one I really wanted.

I loved the books and the movies.
