I have been a huge Harry Potter Fan Since the day I read The Philosophers Stone, I read all the books the day they were released and watched all the films, mostly on release day, and have the box set.
Yes I am a total Harry Potter geek. I just love it. We have visited Alnwick castle to visit where Harry learnt to fly the broomstick, and can’t wait to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios next year.
So; we were up early and arrived with time to spare to collect our tickets. The queues were minimal, I would definitely recommend going early, although you are given a time slot it seemed much busier when we left.
As soon as I saw the studios I felt so excited, I was like child. So much so, the boys were rolling their eyes at me in embarrassment. However as soon as they entered they all felt equally as excited. Firstly we were ushered into a large studio where we watched a video about the history behind Harry Potter. When the film ended we were transported, as if by magic, to the doors to the great hall, I nearly leapt out of my chair with excitement.
We all stood there whilst the narrator chatted for a while, and then he did it, opened the doors. Wow, it was amazing just like on the film, it really was so magical. We were allowed to spend quite some time in the great hall whilst a narrator told us lots of facts about the hall. It really was so spectacular.The hall was filled with memorabilia from the film, such as tables set for feasts and costumes from all the cast. It was the sort of space you could imagine holding a huge spectacular wedding.
We then progressed on to the Harry Potter sets,
The Burrows was filled with many interactive features, the Boys loved this. It felt so homely that you almost expected Mrs. Weasley to walk in.
