When plans were announced for a Potter land at Universal Studios Hollywood, then I knew I could start planning for a very feasible (and much less expensive) trip. This week, my family hit the road and arrived at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
Quick verdict: Loved it. The whole experience made me happy. All of the little details, the rides, the food, everything.
Downside though, there are crowds. So. Many. People. We saw that they sell Front of the Line tickets and scoffed at the price (staring at $199, basically twice the cost of our 1 day ticket). However, after spending much of the day in lines, we came around to the idea that maybe getting those for the people in our group who actually enjoy rides might be worth it.
Now on to some specifics. And pictures, of course.
Forbidden Journey - Best. Ride. In. The. Park. Combo of 3D movie-ride and animatronics.
