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. While in Honeyduke's be sure to get a Cauldron Cake. These things are delicious! I spent a week in Orlando, FL recently and just had to get over here to shoot this place. I had seen so many pics from here, and wanted to see it with my own eyes (and through my own camera). Luckily I had some nice light and wonderful clouds, which added a little extra drama to the shot. It's not Italy, but it sure looks like it! From http://nomadicpursuits.com/ 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. View of Hogwarts castle waiting in line for Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey at Universal Studios Islands of Adventure Hogwarts! Hard Rock Café Orlando 🇱🇷 Hogwart's 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!

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! 🍔🎸 Diagon Alley #Universal #HarryPotter #themepark #orlando #florida #usa #travel #wanderlust Universal city walk 🇱🇷 Yes, I'm a Harry Potter geek, but the new theme park is definitely worth a visit. This is the first year that Universal has decorated Harry Potter World for Christmas. They outdid themselves on so many levels! Hogwarts Castle at Harry Potter World. Pro tip - don't guzzle a butter beer before riding the castle ride.  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
Straight out of a Harry Potter book #HP #Hogsmeade 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! Spent an amazing day at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! Got my wand at Ollivander's which comes with a map that shows all the secret locations in both Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade where you can practice your spells. Tip: hit the Harry Potter areas of Universal as early as possible, after lunch it turns into a madhouse, even on a weekday. Flourish & Blotts, must stop for your Hogwarts book list. 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 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! Butter beer ice cream #FoodieFinds Portofino Resort Sometimes the dragon shoots fire out of his mouth. Again, I cannot stress enough how beautiful this hotel actually is.. this area is just outside of the lobby!
Paging system for the waitresses. Hogwarts Castle Dragon! 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 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. Great outdoor oasis here at the Hard Rock Orlando. 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. Awesome view in universal orlando 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 To me, the magic was hanging from the ceiling... Lots of different food choices & Duff Beer! 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).

Studios You don't even have to be a temporary resident at the Portofino Bay hotel to enjoy this Italian picturesque. Take a taxi boat over from CityWalk and sink your teeth into some pizza while you enjoy the scenery. Don't forget the Gelato for dessert!

Lots of fun and unique gifts, for children of all ages Ever dream of singing on stage with a band and back-up singers while an audience cheers you on?
