Greetings from Hogwarts

This week me, my family, and my friend Jenae are hanging out at Universal Studios Orlando for the Harry Potter Celebration. It has been an absolutely amazing experience. This is my third time to HP world, but my first time going to Diagon Alley, and let me just tell you IT IS INCREDIBLE!! 

Riding the Hogwarts Express was a moment I can't even describe. 

The Gringotts ride is probably my favorite ride in the park now. It's a combination roller coaster/3-D ride and it's so much fun. Plus you actually go through the bank to get on the ride. The goblins are SO realistic! 

I also loved getting an interactive wand and doing spells outside the shops. So awesome. Oh and Knockturn Alley, and The Knight Bus, and eating ice cream at Florean Fortescue's, and exchanging my money for Wizard money at Gringotts which you can use as real money in the park!! SO MANY THINGS! SO MUCH AWESOME!! 

There's also an HP Expo and lots of fun extras happening right now. Some of the actors are even here!! 

Be sure to follow my Instagram to keep up with all the pics if you're interested! (AndyeReadingTeen) 



  1. I am sooo jealous! I have been wanting to get down to Harry Potter World, but have yet to make it. Last time i was in Orlando was 2003. Enjoy the rest of your trip!

  2. I love how you signed your name. And i am ridiculously jealous. Its almost like you went to Paris without me ;)

  3. That's so awesome! I've been to the Warner Brothers Studios in England, but it looks like Universal Studios Orlando is tons of fun too!

  4. Oh my gosh that sounds amazing! I want to go! Enjoy!! :D

  5. I've been to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter twice. This past August, we went to both parks, rode the Hogwarts Express both directions, and ate at Three Broomsticks. We had a blast. It is ridiculous how detailed everything is! We especially liked Knockturn Alley and the wand tricks there. The real question is - frozen or regular Butter Beer? We preferred the frozen.

  6. I can't wait to go! We went to the HP World before, but not to the new attractions. Have an awesome time Andye!
