Heading over to Universal on Saturday. My sister’s work is having a company picnic there. I am going to pick up my Florida residence pass so I will be ready to go over and over again. I knew living in this hideous state would pay off one day :)

In the video, Stuart Craig talks about the attention to detail. Stuart, I am sorry to report that you missed one regarding the Hogwarts Express.

As a minor Steam Locomotive Buff, I must tell you that the Whistle on steam locomotives is never down the smokestack! It is mounted on top of the boiler and when the whistle blows, the spent steam does not blow out the smokestack!

I’m sure you will want to correct that!

Oh it looks great. I really want to go but why does it have to be so far away? I probably won’t get a chance to go as it will be so expensive to visit from the UK. I’m a poor student!
