Dreams do come true
Yes, that's right - the day my dream to visit Hogsmeade was actualized! This past January we visited Universal Studios Orlando - and of course I HAD to visit Hogsmeade (aka. Harry Potter Land). It was the absolute best time, and I highly recommend it for die-hard fans and those who don't know anything about it (although I can't even fathom why everyone has not read the books or at least seen the films). Anyways, Hogsmeade is brilliant. From Zonko's to Honey Dukes everything is perfect down to the smallest detail. Like, how you can hear Moaning Myrtle's voice in the washroom (EEK!), you can tour Hogwarts castle and even help Harry, Ron and Hermione!
My favorite part of the day was when I was selected for the wand demonstration by Mr. Ollivander HIMSELF! That's right y'all - it's my Harry Potter moment, and I will remember it forever...
