I did not imagine the Three Broomsticks to be so large.

hi, i just voted for honeydukes….as im a major suger freak and am dying to try out the suger quills and droo-ballz (havent got the book on- spell*)
hehe mmm lovely, i can taste them now :)

i would have voted for olivanders, but i have loads of hp wands and have my own wand already from alivans website…
sorry sorry mr olivander!>
and zonkos, as someone quite rightly put it pails in comparision to WWW soo………….. :)

i was disapointed that they didnt have WWW as an option too…….
but maybe, they know that we’d all voted for that and there making it aswell????> well, im hoping thats the reason because i’d be pritty annoyed to say the least if i went and they didnt have it, it one id want to see!!!! :)
on another note, if they do have it, please get the name right WB>
as thats the only disapointment frm the new pictures from HBP-
its weasleys wizard weezes- NOT weasley and weasly for crying out loud!!!

and, the pictures of what it might look like are amazing , so beautiful….

Dang, Ollivander’s is winning! I voted for Honeydukes though…

I like how it’s really close. Usually, especially in the broomstick one, it’s obvious which will win. But right now all options are neck-and-neck. I voted for Honeydukes, mostly because I’d love to be able to sing the wrock song while walking there.

well for me it was hard between Zonko’s and Ollivander’s but I chose Ollivander’s! i could use some more wand, plus that would be pretty cool. But any of the 3 will do!

The thing is, if they plan to have interactive wands and such, even if Ollivander’s isn’t chosen, you’ll still be able to get them somewhere. They wouldn’t change such a big thing based on a poll. And if they don’t plan to do interactive wands and such, then Ollivander’s would probably just be a place to buy Licorice Wands and such.

Plus, they could make there be a walkway from Hogwarts to Honeydukes! How insanely awesome would that be?

As much as I LOVE Honeydukes, I think OLLIVANDERS would make a terrific choice, as it could be so cleverly incorporated into a real ‘experience’ in the Theme Park. They could have a man dressed in character as Mr. Ollivander there to help you pick out your wand, which would make for both a memorable experience for people of all ages, and would be a treasured souveneir and keepsake. Plus, there might be ways to use your wand throughout the park, like John Noe I believe suggested at one time. Anyway, I think Ollivanders would be a great store, but any and all of them should be at the theme park really! I want THE WHOLE THING!!!

Oh so close, but I voted for Honeydukes, because WWW so much better than Zonkos!

As I love all 3, I think Honeydukes would be the most attractive and economical. Lots of people buy candy. Ollivander’s would be great but they’d only sell wands. Zonko’s- cool as well but I’d rather see WWW.

EGADS! I CAN"T CHOOSE!

Ack—I finally picked Honeydukes over Ollivanders. Though Ollivanders would be boss, I really think that Honeydukes would have more to offer without dissapointing. At Ollivanders people would expect individual attention—and with a place that busy, they’d be let down.

But I REALLY hope they have at least the both of them.

Now, this might not be entirely ethical, but if you want to, you can vote for two if you wish – I’ve checked, and the site is not counting cookies, so you can twice if you wish.

WHY is there not an “All of the above” option, and a write-in for WWW? Seriously! sigh
