Wizarding World of Harry Potter Part 3!

 When the Hogwarts Express arrived in Hogsmeade I don't think any of us expected we could still be so amazed. But there was such a different magical feel that it felt like a completely brand-new experience. We walked around a bit taking in the town...

...and Little Man stopped into Honeydukes for a chocolate frog and some Bertie Botts every flavor beans.

We walked on and our mouths practically dropped when we saw Hogwarts for the first time! We walked in to begin the tour of the school that is the cue for the ride inside. We all agreed the ride was fantastic!

And we loved seeing things we recognized from the movie, like the entrance to Dumbledore's office.

And the talking portraits!

And the sorting hat!

When you board the ride you see the enchanted ceiling!

After the ride we grabbed dinner. My sister had a ginormous turkey leg.

Hubby had a platter and Little Man had fish and chips while I had shepherd's pie. With butterbeer of course!

We had dinner at the Three Broomsticks.

Butterbeer has long lines!! You can get the original, slushy version, ice cream version or during the cold months you can have hot butterbeer.

We all agreed that the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is truly magical...even for someone who hasn't seen the movies! It was a fun way to celebrate Little Man's birthday!
