For my birthday this year Jasey bought me two tickets to Universal Studios. I’ve been trying to convince Nene to get down here so we could go together (which was the original plan before she moved to South Carolina). :( But as we know plans don’t always work out the way we would hope. Since the tickets were going to expire the end of the year and I was going to start getting into lots of blackout dates with the holidays, mom and I decided to head on up to Orlando and go to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter!!! Yippeeeeeee!
(I will try to keep my excitement to a minimum, but I really can't promise anything)
We drove up Saturday night after mom got off of work, checked into our hotel which was literally right around the corner. It took longer to walk to our car then it did to drive the car to the park. We went to City Place that night and had a couple Cheeseburgers in Paradise. Before we were Potter Watchers we were (and still are) Parrot Heads. Next day we got up earlier than we expected to, checked out and got to the park before 9:00. We went in and headed right back to Harry Potter!!!
There are no pictures of this but I cried like a 12 year old, love crazed, Beatles fan. Well, that may be a bit of a stretch, mom probably would have walked away from me at that point, but there were some teary eyed moments involved during all the gasping, squealing, jumping, picture taking madness.
Oh, I had so much fun.

Mom and I had an amazing time and were not in the least bit disappointed. Every little detail was thought through and put into place. The only problem we had was deciding which trinkets to buy. I can't wait to go back (maybe with Nene this time ;) and even if you aren't as big of a Harry Potter dweeb as I am you will still have a great time!
