Here are our photos from Universal Studios. This first section is of photos of when we first got there.
Universal Studios Citywalk
This 2nd section is when we reached the Harry Potter part of the park. The whole reason for our visit here. It was just like jumping into one of the movies.
This is one of my favorite photos from the trip.
Entering the Hogwarts Express train station.
Ronald @ Platform 9 3/4
I made it to Platform 9 3/4
They helped us get on the train.
On the train.
This store was just as I dreamed it would be. There were so many goodies to choose from in here.
Every flavor beans.
That is an awful lot of black licorice.
It was here that I discovered “Butter Beer”. Now my most favorite drink ever.
My first taste of regular butter beer.
Ron’s first taste of regular butter beer.
A nice person in line was nice enough to get a picture of us waiting in line to get into Ollivander’s. I can’t wait to see the inside of this wand shop. Today we will be shopping for wands for Ron and the kids. Madison would like Hermione’s wand. Emerson would like Professor Snape’s wand and Aidan would like Dumbledore’s wand. Ron hasn’t made up his mind yet. I think I am going to wait until next year to get a wand when we bring the kids so that they can use mine in the park. I think I will look for Professor McGonagall’s wand.
Ron talking to Madison on the phone. She is asking a ton of questions about the park. It is honestly to much too explain over the phone. She will just have to see it herself next year.
Frozen butter beer. I thought regular butter beer was awesome until I tried the frozen version. THIS is the ultimate drink. I am going to have to fill up on these before I leave.
Ronald in Ollivander’s wand shop.
He has chosen his wand. He picked one that was made for someone with his birthday. He had a fun time playing with it around the park. His wand is interactive and allows him to make magic throughout the park. He could make a “waterfall” and make a musical carousel turn on and off, among other things.
We had dinner at the Three Broomsticks.
Ron ordered the ribs with red potatoes and corn on the cob.
I ordered the rotisserie chicken with red potatoes and corn on the cob. I of course ordered myself another frozen butter beer.
Should I go to Hogwarts or Hogsmeade?
Quidditch Supply Shop.
The Weasley’s joke shop.
Here you could exchange muggle money for wizard money.
Main strip of Diagon Alley.
This 3rd section is from other parts of Universal.
The best taffy ever. This minion taffy is both banana and chocolate together. What a wonderful taste blended together.
Oh and did I mention how cute each piece is…
We stopped by Seuss Land.
