I am most exited about the Forbidden Forest! I cant wait to see what they come up within the forest!
I am wondering whether it will be frightening or if it will be a mild scare factor, or not scary at all and just fun.
Even though I cant go, I still want to see how it comes out!
My Favorite Harry Potter book is Deathly Hallows because it combines almost everything from all the books and brings together all the curiosity from the audience.

I can’t wait to experience the walk through the gates and past the Hogwarts Express. As a fan for 11 years, I have dreamed about being near that train for many years and I think I will die from excitement at that moment! haha
And my favourite book is Deathly Hallows. So dramatic and it’s the point that everything was leading towards.

I’m most excited about seeing the inside of Hogwarts Castle finally! :) After imagining it in my head for all these years and then seeing it in the movies for hundreds of times, it will be a truly breathtaking and remarkable dream come true to set foot in it!

As far as my favorite book, I will have to say Deathly Hallows. It was the book that made me cry, laugh, get mad, and smile the most…. it was a true ending to an epic tale! :)

I would love to visit Hogwarts at the theme park, to go on the forbidden journey ride. It would be such a great experience to see Dumbledore’s office and the paintings talking to you. My favourite Harry Potter book is Goblet of Fire.

I am looking forward to try the butterbeer at the three broomsticks.
I love all the Harry Potter book so it’s hard for me to pick out just one..but if I have to choose I probably choose Deathly Hallows as my favourite. :)

I’m definitely excited for Olivander’s. I’m curious to see how the “wand chooses the wizard” will get played out.

Favorite book? Order of the Phoenix. Angry Harry and an action-packed finale makes for a great read!
