Here are some of the photos:
The Adventure Begins...
I can see it! I can see it!
But we went through other "Islands" first.
My goofy husband mimicking the carving of Poseidon.
Yes, oh yes.
Hogwarts. Inside is a simulation ride that is pretty intense (for me) because of the spiders and dragons that pop out at your face. But you get to walk through some Hogwarts-inspired classrooms, see moving paintings, and go through Dumbledore's office while you stand in line.
Our attempt at getting our picture in front of Hogwarts (without asking a stranger for help).
We were pretty tired after walking all day. We rode a lot of rides, saw a show, and shot little kids with water guns on a water ride. Overall, I would definitely go back - lines were so long in HP World that I didn't get to see and do everything I had wanted.
The most interesting part of the experience was that my Coastie watched 3 Harry Potter movies in the following 1.5 days... I think I've got him hooked. *wink*
