I was going to go to England (which is only a car drive and a ferry trip away), and then save up to go to the Wizarding World next year, but ooh, I don’t know if I can wait. It sounds so great!! And this package seems awesome!

I got that email about these vacation packages. The prices aren’t that bad! To stay at a four star hotel on-site for two including all that jazz (breakfast etc..) is about $500pp. It’ll be the flights for me that I’ll have to factor in at $120+ each way + taxes + airport fees + baggage fees etc. start saving those knuts.
