The Magic Trip: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter (Part 2)

Continuing the awesomeness from Part 1.

We were very fortunate to have come across a young gentleman in Disney World who had gone to Universal’s Harry Potter the first two days it opened.  He gave us some sound advice as to what to look out for and how to deal with the Escape from Gringotts line.  In case you were unaware, the first day it opened, there was a 7 hour wait!

Being the devout Harry Potter fans we are, Robby and I were prepared to wait the seven hours if need be.  Luckily, we didn’t have to.  He said the morning was the worst time and to wait until the afternoon.  It lessens up considerably.  Good thing because when we first arrived, this was the wait time:

The Magic Trip: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter (Part 1)

It’s happening. The post you’ve all been waiting for.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Part 1 (because the awesomeness couldn’t all fit in one post)

Robby and I first went to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter when it first opened a few years ago.  When we heard Diagon Alley would be opening this summer, we obviously had to go.

The first time we went to Hogsmeade we didn’t think it could get any better.

Oh, how wrong we were.

It was everything I was hoping for and more.  Hogsmeade doesn’t even compare to Diagon Alley.  Don’t ask me what the rest of the park was like because we literally spent two whole days just in Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley.

I’m just going to let the photos speak for themselves. Because. Yea.
