Universal Studio - Harry Potter

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Today's blog post is going to have plenty of photographs about my trip to Florida and a visit to the Universal Studios to see Harry Potter themed park.

I went to America to see my very good friend Deb, when I got there she had a lovely surprise for me in that she had arranged for us to go to Orlando to see Universal Studios and in particular Harry Potter themed park.  I was over the moon as I am such a big Harry Potter fan.

The entrance to the theme park.

The first place we went to was Hard Rock Cafe! This is the one which is shaped like a guitar.
It was fabulous inside and on top of the bar they have this gorgeous pink Cadillac rotating around.
The atmosphere was fabulous and we enjoyed our meal there too.

This is the entrance to Hogsmead

Compulsory photograph of the entrance with Deb and I.

Above are just some of the photographs of Hogsmead! Fabulous to see the shops from the films. Some of the windows had interactive themes which obviously I couldn't photograph. The dress was actually being sewn. You could buy wands that would activate activities throughout both Hogsmead and Diagon Ally.

The above photographs are of the outside of Hogwarts.
We went on one of the rides which was amazing, the cinematography was awesome and it felt like we were actually over the quidditch pitch too!  

This is the entrance to the main part of the theme park and where Diagon Ally is located.

The above 2 photographs are of Lew Wasserman who was the Chairman of Universal Studios.

The above are just some of the photographs we took at Diagon Ally, we went on a brilliant ride inside Gringotts. AMAZING! Took a trip on the steam train too!

It was a fabulous trip made all the more special being in the company of my very dear friend DEB.

Had to get a photograph of myself with this gorgeous car!

A beautiful night out with Deb and Paul for a meal.

A sneaky margarita too!

I hope you have enjoyed this post. There are so many photographs taken but this post would go on forever!

Many thanks to Deb and Paul for a brilliant holiday!
So many precious memories!

Thanks for visiting
