A week ago, I got to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, the homage to Hogwarts within Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. Because I know so many of my readers are huge HP fans, I made sure to take tons of photos to post on Just Plain Something. While I will be posting a bunch of pictures from the 2nd part of the trip, let me assure you that I won’t be able to share everything from the park with you. There will be plenty for you to discover for yourselves when you make it down to Florida. This is just a taste of what you’ll be able to experience.
Speaking of taste, we were pretty hungry after going through Hogwarts. Where better to get a bite to eat in Hogsmeade than The Three Broomsticks?
This is pretty much how packed it is all the time.
Considering this is the only place in “Hogsmeade” to sit down and eat (and there were literally hundreds and hundreds of people just in the Harry Potter part of Universal alone), I was surprised that we were able to get through the line and sit down without feeling way too crowded. Mike had fish and chips (which were surprisingly crispy considering how many they have to dish out every hour) and I had a decent shepard’s pie.
The hog’s head at the Hog’s Head would occasionally move and grunt.
Honeydukes’ delicious selection.
Just one of the candies from the book, but not the movie!
Another great buy straight from the books!
Turns out Helga Hufflepuff was known for her cooking. That explains her legendary object being a drinking cup and her house’s common room situated right by the kitchens.
So, we’re almost done with our adventure to Harry Potter’s world. The last chapter includes more thrills, most sights and just a hint of child-like wonder. Stay tuned!
Shouldn't have read this post while hungry…
