I’m looking forward to seeing the castle as well as visiting the shops from the story. I plan to go some time this year.

My favorite book would have to be the Half Blood Prince.

As for me, a 64-year old big time HP fan, I think I would have to go to the Owl Post, to collect stamps, writing utensils, paper….that would be a real joy!! Filch’s Emporium of Confiscated Goods would be a close second, though. My favorite book? Where it all started…The Sorcerers’ Stone.

Just stepping foot into the park and seeing all the places I’ve come to love in real life. I can’t wait. And my favourite book is Deathly Hallows because I’m a sucker for a happy ending.

The part of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park that I’m most excited to experience is walking through the doors of Hogwarts Castle for the first time, as it will be a dream come true. It’s something I’ve dreamt and thought about for over a decade, HP was a huge part of my childhood and now I have the opportunity to go to Hogwarts for real.

My favourite book is ‘Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix’.
