Welcome to Dream Bookish Destinations. This is a feature in which I lust over (semi) Bookish Destinations across the world.
What is it? The Wizarding World of Harry Potter
Where is it? Universal Studios, Florida
History: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is one of seven themed sections of the Universal Studios Islands of Adventure Theme Park in Orlando Florida. It was opened in June 2010 after a two and a half year construction period. Rides and attractions featured include Harry Potter and the Forbidden Jounrey (housed in the replica Hogwarts Castle), Dragon Challenge and Flight of the Hippogriff.
Why I want to go there: Do you REALLY have to ask that? honestly? I’m a huge Harry Potter geek, I love those books so much that I want their babies… I’m getting the DVD box set for Christmas on Blu-ray just so I can watch the movies again and again, but never as much as Ive read the books! To think that I could go and drink butterbeer and walk through a replica of Hogwarts is awesome. I’ve heard amazing things about this theme park and I would give anything to go… alas it is too far away and I’ll probably never have enough money to get there but nevermind, it can still be a Dream Bookish Destination!
