Universal Studios Harry Potter World during our Christmas Holidays
I am proud to admit that I think I am one of the first Harry Potter Fans (In Canada). It was 1998 ish and I walked into my elementary school’s library to see what they had. I saw Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone and immediately dismissed it for its childish appearance. After a closer look, I realized it was brand new. There is nothing I liked more at that time than reading a brand new novel. It wasn’t until about a year later that everyone else in my hometown caught the potter-fever and I was so proud at the time to have already discovered it!
Ever since that day in the library, I have been hooked on the HP Universe. I have costume parties for every movie, waited in line for every book. When I realized we were going to Florida for the holidays, I knew we had to make a stop at Universal Studios.
I was amazed to see all the adults there. 90% of the crowd was between the ages of 25-40, which surprised me, but I realized just because I was a kid when HP was popular, doesn’t mean children these days read the books.
HP world was everything I hoped it would be! The rides were exciting, the merchandise was awesome and I felt like I was in Hogsmeade! I can’t wait to go back!
