Hogsmeade at Universal Studios Orlando

Posted by Tamie on Monday, October 8, 2012

The Heaton's took us to Florida in May.  Hogsmeade at Universal Orlando was a dream come true for our family.  Ryan, Tyran and I were like giddy kids.  Now we're reading the books with the younger three boys too! Thank you Grandma and Grandpa Heaton!

A view of Hogwarts from Hogsmeade

Another view of Hogwarts.  They've built it in a way to make it appear larger than it really is.

Tanner was chosen to be fitted for a wand at Olivanders.  I got choked up when the music, wind and lights hit him.  He was pretty sure that wand would work afterwards if he only practiced all day long. So magical!

Practicing spells . . . expelliarmus!

Frozen Butter Beer at the Leaky Cauldron. Delicious BUT we should have had it AFTER the rides.  I got to spend time with Moaning Mertyle in the bathroom trying to keep it down!

I would feel giddy going to Hogsmeade too! How much fun for your family.
