The Singing Tower at Bok Tower Gardens. The tower is a carillon with 60 bells. Such a beautiful place The Orlando Eye. I haven't been on it yet, but I love seeing all of the changing colors! Really wishing that Sydney had a Sugar Factory so I could grab one of these yummy concoctions! This picture is from the Sugar Factory in Orlando - the bar tender makes the drink right it front of you so you can film as the dry ice is poured in! Some days we want the extraordinary. A trip to Spintwitches for all your quidditch needs. Harry Potter #market 🎃⚡️👻*broomstick icon required* Hogsmeade Orlando 2012. It is how they build the houses in Orlando! While in Honeyduke's be sure to get a Cauldron Cake. These things are delicious! The Orlando Wonder Works resembles a upside down building, complete with inverted palm trees. Made to look like a mansion uprooted by a tornado and dumped in the middle of the block. It was built in 1998. The inside has an upside down appearance as well. It's $25/adult for admission to visit inside. You can feed the birds! One yummy castle! The World of Chocolate Museum is amazing & you get to sample chocolates at the end of the tour We couldn't believe our eyes as this sunset unfolded. I've never seen one as beautiful before or since. Not your usual #market 😁 Wands, wands anyone? Maybe mine will be colorful, with a peacock feather...I ❤️Hogsmeade. My favorite spot at Islands of Adventure: Hogwarts! Not a bad ride either. Quiet please. I take a sun bath.
#desktop #KidsFun View of Hogwarts castle waiting in line for Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey at Universal Studios Islands of Adventure Hogwarts! A peaceful find in such a bustling city. Hard Rock Café Orlando 🇱🇷 Discovery Cove isn't cheap, but its worth every penny. Hogwart's The Orlando Eye is an attraction on I Drive that I wish had a better view. Too far from downtown and too far from Disney. But, certainly fun to photograph.
#EndlessSummer Beatiful sun!
Orlando, Florida - USA 🇺🇸 So sweet Sea of Christmas trees Ducks in Peabody hotel Orlando...
How did the tradition of the ducks in The Peabody fountain begin?
Back in the 1930s Frank Schutt, General Manager of The Peabody, and a friend, Chip Barwick, returned from a weekend hunting trip to Arkansas. The men had a little too much Jack Daniel's Tennessee sippin' whiskey, and thought it would be funny to place some of their live duck decoys (it was legal then for hunters to use live decoys) in the beautiful Peabody fountain.
Three small English call ducks were selected as Take a look around the Jurassic Park Discovery Center. If you're lucky, you might see a dinosaur hatch... Universal Studios, Orlando, FL #orlando #florida #usa #travel #wanderlust Visit The Hog's Head Tavern for a Dragon Scale or Wizard's Brew the Wizarding World's specialty beers, or a Fire Whiskey! We tried the recommend drink of adding the Fire Whiskey to a Strongbow. I would definitely pass the recommendation on. It's like the best of both worlds!

#orlando Hard Rock Cafe, Orlando.
Biggest one in the world!
Incredible to look at from the inside and the outside, especially when there's a sunset like this!
Great food & music, definitely will be visiting there again! 🍔🎸 Another of Orlando's parks, SeaWorld is a theme park, and marine-life based zoological park.
Roller coasters Manta and Kraken are fantastic. Diagon Alley #Universal #HarryPotter #themepark #orlando #florida #usa #travel #wanderlust Love to watch the colorful fish in the tank! Universal city walk 🇱🇷 Dolphin play time! This is the first year that Universal has decorated Harry Potter World for Christmas. They outdid themselves on so many levels! Lots of mosiac balls, showers, & fountains by the pool. The fitness center has free lockers/amenities so ...... After day at park when you have already checked out. bam! swim in pool. shower, change, and you are good to go! #highwithoutwalls
Good hotel for people visiting or working in Orange County Convention Centre Straight out of a Harry Potter book #HP #Hogsmeade Trader Joes in the Dr Phillips area puts a lot of effort into making it beautiful. Harry Potter World at Universal Studios-Orlando is a must for any fan of the movies/books. They do not miss a single detail - it feels like you're living out the stories you've loved for so long! The dolphin show is always amazing! Flourish & Blotts, must stop for your Hogwarts book list. Believe it or not, these are wild birds and not a part of the Seal exhibit. Flying with Manta, at Sea World Orlando. #Blue
#EndlessSummer You feel like you were inside the book. It's perfect. #Blue The Hogwarts Express! Vista de Orlando, final da tarde é mais bonito Delicious frozen butterbeer, Olivander's wand shop, and incredible rides await Muggles and Wizards alike at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! Upside down building on International Drive! Hogwarts. Still waiting for my owl. The Hopping Pot, this is where I got my Butter Beer! Butter Beer was delicious! However, I would suggest it frozen. The regular drink wasn't good at all. I ended up pouring it out. Taken at the amazing Harry Potter land in Universal Studios amusement park. Orlando, Fl They closed the park early due to Halloween Nights, we got an extra hour wristband and it was perfect for taking photos with no people in them! Durmstrang and Beauxbatons contestants visiting Hogwarts for the Tri Wizard Tournament. Fun family friendly resort in Orlando near all the attractions...
(Yes, she beat the pants off us..) Remember the candy from the movies and books, well stop in at Honeyduke's and be sure to at least get a chocolate frog! Sometimes the dragon shoots fire out of his mouth. Such a good waterpark!
Good variety of rides for the whole family, good atmosphere and 2 wave pools!
I personally think the rapid lazy river (the name is escaping me whilst writing this) - where you just use a life jacket to float with the fast currents, it's so fun!!
Definitely worth the visit! 🏊🏽‍♀️🏊🏻 Again, I cannot stress enough how beautiful this hotel actually is.. this area is just outside of the lobby!
Decent place for the entire family to enjoy a day mini golf. Sparkly chandelier in Tampa. #AquaTrove Snorkelling with stingrays. #SweetSpot
Eat one or eat them all at Season 52! Lazy river at the lakeshore reserve is truly relaxing! Paging system for the waitresses. Style 16.00 Dolphin Show Dolphin saying hi! Afternoon tea, love it! Hogwarts Castle Dragon! Great view of Orlando! Kids friendly Hogwarts has my heart forever!

The Hogwarts Express at Universal Studios was a fantastic addition. The train ride connects the two parks. You ride through from Platform 9 3/4 in London to Hogsmeade. #bestof5 #orlando #universalstudios #harrypotter 400 feet high and it takes 1/2 hour for a complete revolution. Hogwarts! The Forbidden Journey was the best ride I've ever ridden! A must for anyone visiting. For your first time I suggest going through the castle. You get to see a lot of awesome things. Then if you want to ride it again go to the single riders line. You will get on the ride within 5-10 minutes. Be sure to check out the interactive locations to use your wand from Ollivander's. You will not be disappointed! Fun Spot America is a cool and entertaining place for the entire family. This Chevrolet truck is on display inside the complex. Harry Potter section of Universal Studios is for adults, too! Hogwarts castle at Universal Studios in Orlando Florida.
#Castle Universal Studios What an amazing resort! Love the 50s vibe! This hotel.. wow, it is so aesthetically pleasing everywhere you go!
The staff even greet you by saying If you can't make it to London, to give the London Eye a ride, the Orlando Eye is a great option. Next time I'll try riding at dusk. Diagone Alley This place is crazy!! A cross between McDonalds and Chuckie Cheese!! A McDonalds on roids Giant space robot, at city walk mini golf Fish & Chips, and B.L.T.E. (BLT with egg; tomato is fried green.) To me, the magic was hanging from the ceiling... Always a fan of symmetry! #orlando #marriott Something from amazing SeaWorld Orlando Another photo from SeaWorld Orlando. Universal Studios Island Of Adventures is a MUST! Fun for all ages; even for people who don't get on rollercoasters. Best time to visit would be autumn or early spring. Inside the Dragon Challenge you will see the Goblet of Fire and the Triwizard Tournament Trophy. I can't do a lot of rides in the park because they make me sick, but Universal adds so many details for while you're walking through the line that I had missed things. My husband asked an attendant if I could just walk through and exit when we got the ride. You have to have an escort to do this but they added me to a walking tour group for someone's birthday which allowed me to take pictures of the inside, something you normally can't do (for most rides you have to store EVERYTHING in a free locker if you're riding).
