The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

After Miami, Evey and I drove to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios in Orlando. It was a short 3 hour drive with many many tolls to pay. I think I’ve paid more tolls on this one trip than I have the entire year. I had to pay the toll twice just from our hotel to the airport.

We had decided to stay at the Hard Rock  Hotel, which was located inside Universal Studios. If you stay at one of the hotels within park, your room key will get you an express pass for some of the rides and also early entrance to the parks. FYI – The room was clean, beds were comfy, shower pressure was lacking, and the shampoo/conditioner smelled like grass. The hotel staff was excellent though. Everyone seemed happy and were really helpful.

The hotel had many guitars and stuff displayed all over the place. These belong to Elton John. I want the one on the bottom right.


Good job Universal. Good job!




Imagine yourself as that kid. How lucky would you feeling right now?


Butter beer? Yes please. I like mine frozen. Thank you much!


In case you were wondering, that’s butterscotch whipped cream on top.


You have to buy candy from Honeydukes.



Aside from Harry Potter land, we also stopped by Seuss Landing and…you know…played. Even adults need to have fun sometimes.


Oh look at all the bright colors! Which way???



Note to self: start planning 2014 Miami/Orlando trip now.
