"the trusted voice of teens who travel"

Attention all Harry Potter fans… Grab your robes and wands, because the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, Florida awaits you!
I thought a post on the Harry Potter-themed amusement park would be perfect with the newest HP movie that just came out; my friend actually watched the premiere at the Orlando theme park!
The park features several rides, including the Dragon Challenge and the Flight of the Hippogriff. There is Ollivanders wand shop that has a brief show in which “the wand chooses the wizard” (a lucky kid picked from the crowd).
There are also several entertaining, albeit a bit corny, shows from the movies including the frog chorus which was in the 4th movie, I believe…
One warning: When entering the wizarding village of Hogsmeade, everything stays true to the Harry Potter series. So of course, there is no sunscreen for sale in any of the shops. Why would anyone in the snowy, English village need that?
For a one-day pass, tickets for adults cost $82 and for children (3-9) cost $74. Although on the expensive side, there are some deals for multi-day ticket purchases.
Harry Potter and the magic of the wizarding world is waiting for YOU!
