The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Dreams came true on April 15th 2016. I was lucky enough to visit the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, Hollywood. I am so happy that I have been able to spend the last year in an entertainment hub like Los Angeles. I am close to Disneyland (it really is the most magical place on earth!) as well as Universal Studios which means my weekends can often be very exciting. 

The Wizarding World had barely been open for a week when I visited and there was a buzz of excitement within the cobbled streets of Hogsmeade. The place was brimming with want-to-be witches and wizards donning fresh Hogwarts robes (despite the 30 degree SoCal weather...). Americans really do everything bigger and better than we do in England. The shopfronts were interactive. It was amazing. If you were fortunate enough to be in possession of a wand from Ollivander's you could use spells to bring the shop windows to life. REAL LIFE MAGIC. 

There are 2 rides to enjoy when visiting Hogsmeade one is situated within Hogwarts walls named "Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey" which is an amazing 3D ride. As well as "Flight of the Hippogriff" which follows the journey of Buckbeak. This is a tame rollercoaster aimed at younger riders. After several turns on these rides Jasmine and I finished our day with a hearty English dinner at The Three Broomsticks! I vlogged the entire day and this is available below:
