I don't have to tell you guys how much I love Harry Potter. The world, the characters, everything about Harry Potter. I love it. Earlier this year, I took a trip to London to see my family. The trip was very busy, and I was on my feet almost all day everyday. It was pretty exhausting and day after day I was grateful to go back the apartment and get some rest. Towards the end of the visit, my sister surprised me with a trip to the
This was me.
This experience is definitely in my top 5 favorite surprises ever.
The attention to detail here was amazing! I mean, yeah it was the studio tour but still. I mean look at that window display for Gilderoy Lockhart and his collected works. Each shop I looked into had its own little world inside. I wish we could have gone into every shop there.
We were able to take a look at Ollivanders and it didn't dissapoint.
The walls covered in wand boxes. This room was especially special because every single wand represented someone who worked on the film. This picture doesn't do the room justice at all. Every room was covered, from floor to ceiling in wands. That's how many people it took to bring us the magic and I appreciate every single one of them.
It was awe inspiring, and I really wanted that moment where I got my own wand. Can't you imagine yourself walking into this shop and "trying" on different wands until you found the one. Cue the music and the phantom wind of awesome.
Remember how I'm all about "Where Beauty Meets Comfort" ? Well Honeydukes is definitely all about comfort. Every treat you from Honeydukes you saw in the movies or read in the books, they were there. Chocolate frogs, Every flavor jelly beans, I really couldn't resist grabbing a few things for myself. Check them out!
Now I'm not saying this was my favorite part. But, come on. Weasley's Wizarding Wheezes! Cue the music, let the whacky fun begin!
I will say however, this particular statue was a little weird. I mean it got the point across, Puking Pastilles, does its job. Still though, I'm not sure I would like to turn a corner and find this guy puking in a bucket.
There was way more to see at the studio tour. So much I needed to divide it out, just to give each section its own moment to shine. (Not that they need help) If you're ever in London, or Universal Studios for that matter, I suggest you check out Harry Potter. You won't regret it. Sure, its crowded but at least its crowded with like minded people! Let's all share that HP love we have!
Like I said before there's more to see besides Diagon Alley. Check back to see where else I went on my magical journey!
