I’m most excited for the whole experience, waking into Hogsmead, drinking Butterbeer, basically stepping into the books that I’ve loved for over 10 years.

And my favorite book, definitely Deathly Hallows!

I just really want to walk through the archway and see Hogsmeade before me, and just be able to freak out with the sheer awesomeness.

And favourite book? Oh dear…. Half-Blood Prince. Because it’s pretty much Harry Potter and Severus Snape.

I really want to go into the Great Hall. Thats always been my favorite place in Hogwarts.
And I would have to say that my favorite book is HBP. We get to learn so many interesting things that we didn’t know before about the past and things that could happen in the future.

If they have a Weasley Wizard Weezes shop in the Harry Potter park I’d be in heaven. My favourite book by far is the Deathly Hallows because I love how the whole story just comes together at the end and things that meant nothing before make sense.

I am excited about being able to walk the streets of Hogsmeade just like in the books, without having to deal with the problem of the real English weather… Hahaha

My favorite book has always been Goblet of Fire.

To walk through the “hallowed” doors of Hogwart’s Castle will be a dream-come-true for me. It give me chills just thinking about it. My favorite book in the series is easily the 7th, but I would have a hard time coming up with a number 2 as I don’t think I could decide without my brain imploding.

Well, Florida is too far from Armenia, but where I’d want to go is Hogwarts Castle , especialy Dumbledore’s room!!!!!! It’s be so wonderful to walk in and imagin that he really was there ….For greater good!

Hope that magic of the books will work for me!

I for one CANNOT WAIT to see Hogsmeade (particularly the Owlery, sending myself a letter with the Hosmeade stamp!) and my favorite book is Deathly Hallows because that is the book where JKR ties all the loose ends together that i had been dying to read about.
