Onward with my Florida Vacation. On the agenda today is going to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure to see the magic of Harry Potter world. I have always wanted to see a real magical land, after all as a unicorn I fit right in. The first place that you arrive is London, so I got my bags all packed and got started on becoming a wizard-icorn.
I started in Diagon Alley and right away I was in awe of everything around me. I stopped at the first window and took a peek inside.
A wand shop!!! I want one! My horn is great and all, but a real live wand? Even better I hear that the can wand even pick you! I had to go inside.
SO many choices! A bit overwhelming if you ask me. No matter, I had to try one anyways – see if I get picked and what kind of magic I can make at the interactive spots throughout the park.
Ok, so maybe people wands are not exactly my size. I guess I will just stick with my own magic.
Maybe I could dress the part instead?
Well that fits better but if it covers my horn then it could mess with the magic that I do have. Next stop is to get rid of all this no good real money.
Since I did not need any more supplies it was time to head on over to Hogwarts and Hogsmeade!
I made it on the train, just like a real student. Time to explore and see if I can meet any famous faces.
On my way off to the castle I saw a familiar face. Of course I had to try to help.
I gave Dobby what I had with me for a scarf, I wanted to make sure that he would be free and could go on his own adventures.
I tried to make sure that I learned a bit about each Hogwarts house to see if I could get placed in one. So I did all my research before heading off the castle.
Finally the moment I had been waiting for. Hogwarts castle. Just as beautiful as I imagined. I can’t believe I really got to see the castle. The pictures talk to you, and I even saw the entrance to Griffyndor. There was only a Quidditch game going on when I visited, so I did not get to see too far inside the castle, but it was still a great time. I even got a glimpse of Dumbledore, Harry and the whole gang!
Even if I did’t actually get to be a wizard, I sure felt at home in such a magical place. Magical Creatures fir right in walking around with all the students. Everyone was happy to see me, and so friendly. This is my favorite place that I have been to yet!
At the end of the day I even managed to get a wand that was more my style!
OK, so maybe it was made out of chocolate and did not do any magic. Still after a long hot day, it was a nice treat!
