The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Since Daytona is just about an hour drive from Orlando, 
we decided to stay an extra day and go to Universal Studios/ mainly just Harry Potter World.
I had been sick all week (found out later it was bronchitis) so I was not as excited as Michael and Kelsey.
Once we got there though, it was incredible!
We pretty much ran to HP World.
This was my first view of Hogwarts.
Kelsey and I were beyond excited!
Michael was excited too, just more towards all the Marvel stuff that would come later.
We went straight to the Harry Potter experience line, which is where we stood for about 2 hours.
But it was COMPLETELY worth it!
The ride was amazing! 
(I won't give anything away in case anyone plans to go)
While we waited we took pictures...
 And talked. 
Standing in line with best friends makes the time fly!
After the ride, we went all around the rest of the Islands of Adventure park.
Jurassic Park
Comic Strip Street.
Michael's favorite, Marvel Road
We even met Popeye and Olive Oil
Seuss Land
And back to Harry Potter in the evening.
This time, we got some Butterbeer!!
Michael had never been to one of the big amusement parks, so he was in Heaven.
And I was just excited to be spending the day with friends, and not coughing too much!
It was the perfect day!


  1. we went over christmas too and I was in heaven! It's SO cool! Although, I have to admit I had to close my eyes some during the ride.. it was actually terrifying in parts!

  2. Oh I definitely closed my eyes more than once! Mostly because I wasn't sure what was going to happen during certain parts (the forest)...but I loved it!

  3. So jealous--mostly about HP--but it looks like you had a ton of fun!

  4. Well you look great for having bronchitis! I know when I had it last time that I didn't look anywhere near that good! Haha

    And umm.. You're going to need to tell me at least SOME about the ride at some point.. I REALLY want to go sometime, but let's be real.. That'll probably never happen! Haha.. I'm glad I can live vicariously through you though!

  5. Haha! Thanks, sister! By this time I had been sick for over a week so I was A)used to it, and B)taking pills every 4-6 hours. Also, this day was the best I felt all week, luckily.
    I WANT to tell you all about it! I promise I will!
