The Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Part One

Share This Post

Finally, FINALLY, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter soft opened at Universal Studios Hollywood!  As soon as I could, I bought our annual passes and Scout and I were off to see the Wizard, ahem, Hogwarts.

I took so many pictures, that I will have to split this post into two parts.  Let’s just say, Scout and I had one of our best days ever!

The Wizarding World is on soft open for now, and will grand open on April 7th.  Get your tickets here.

First off, the traditional “going on an adventure” selfie:

Me, the Kid and Breezy the Owl are on our way!

We got into the park and made straight for Hogsmeade, but got stopped along the way:

The Mummy kept touching my neck with his creepy, and cold hand… shudder!

Once we arrived, we were completely mesmerized by how beautiful it was.  You quite literally step into Harry’s world.

Our friend, Anne, joined us for some of the fun and we went for the Hogwarts’ Express photo op:

I have some more pictures to share with you of our first of many trips to Hogwarts!

Entrance to Hogsmeade and enjoying a frozen butterbeer:

The Owlery where we enjoyed our Butterbeer (best thing ever!) and the Frog Choir performed:

We ran into this amazing Slytherin poodle skirt cosplay at Olivander’s, Sirius Black is on the loose! and Scout in front of Hogwarts Castle.  Amazing!

Next time, the wands choose the witches and the low-down on our cosplay…

Love, Kim and Scout
