Do you love everything Harry Potter? Is visiting the Wizarding World of Harry Potter on your bucket list? It’s at the top of mine. I’ve been anxiously waiting for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter to open at Universal Studios Hollywood since the first one opened at Universal Studios Orlando in 2010. Living about 2500 miles away has delayed crossing it off my bucket list. But now … it’s actually going to happen. In California!
I simply cannot wait! Neither can my 12-year-old grandson. He’s a whiz when it comes to Harry Potter trivia. He’s even made up his own spells! Visiting the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter will be a dream come true for Cody. And after all, grandparents are all about helping make dreams come true.
Inspired by J.K. Rowling’s stories and characters, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is recreated with impeccable detail. Hogwarts castle will serve as its iconic focal point. The snow-capped roofs and cobblestone streets give it all a whimsical look and will transport guests of all ages to the very places they read about in the books and watched on the silver screen.
Hogsmeade will bustle to life with merchants, a train conductor welcoming new arrivals and a pub for hungry patrons. No one will want to miss the signature ride, Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey and the family outdoor coaster, Flight of the Hippogriff™. Guests will enjoy authentic food and beverage at the Three Broomsticks™, and Hog’s Head pub.

So, I ask again, are you as excited about the Wizarding World of Harry Potter coming to Hollywood as I am? Perhaps we can meetup in Hogsmeade and chat over a butterbeer!
