There are so many things I’m looking forward to seeing at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, but I think that I’m most excited to go into Honeydukes! Maybe I’m too much like Dudley, but a store selling all the different kinds of candy mentioned in the books sounds too good to be true!
As for my favourite book, I’d have to say that Goblet of Fire is my favourite. Harry, Ron, and Hermione are growing up, but their innocence is not quite gone yet and I like that stage. I also like that you get to find out about wizards and witches from different part of the world.

I cannot wait for the entire park!! There is just too much that I want to see to pick one of them:D

I am a little irritated when there are age limits to contests. HP fans of all ages should be able to win family passes to go to the park.

The part of The Wizarding World of Harry Poter that I’m most eager to experience are the wands. I’ve heard that patrons to the park can buy their own wand and they can use the want to make things happen around the park. How awesome will that be?

My favourite HP book? My favourite book has changed as the series has gone on and I thought it was The Deathly Hallows. But the one book in the series I’ve read more than any other is Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince.

I don’t know what it is about the book that calls to me so much. It has everything: danger, secrets, prophecy, suspense, romance, magic, betrayal. It is the one book that shocked me the most.

I hope I win!
