in keeping with the photography theme this week, i thought i'd share some pictures of the wizarding world of harry potter. this was a small part of our orlando trip, but definitely a highlight! from the streets of hogsmeade to the halls of hogwarts, it was perfect...
we spent a lot of time looking in the shop windows--so many details!!
the ollivander's experience was really cool. one of our little group was picked for the wand selection, so that made it even more fun.
the line to the main ride, harry potter and the forbidden journey, takes you through hogwarts, including several recognizable rooms, and past lots of talking portraits. we loved the line almost as much as the ride! and the ride is completely awesome!!
the three broomsticks tavern in hogsmeade is the place to eat. again, so many details to enjoy and the great feast was delicious. don't forget the butterbeer!
of course, all the expected shops are there--dervish and banges, honeydukes, zonko's, and ollivanders--with fun wizarding wares for little muggles to buy with leftover christmas money! and buy she did!!
