I’d say that I’m excited about drinking Butterbeer in The Three Broomsticks in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Also my favorite Harry Potter book is definitely the 4th: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I love the different tasks, seeing people from foreign schools and the whole plot with Crouch Jr. is absolutely breath-taking.

My favorite book in the series is without a doubt The Half Blood Prince (I thought I was in the minority int this, but glimpsing at the comments perhaps I’m not). It’s difficult to pinpoint what my favorite experience of the theme park would be, but I imagine it would be simply wondering around and examining the minutia most people to miss-the attention to detail.

The Hogwarts Express! My favorite book is Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.

ohh man there are too many part’s but i think i’ll choose honeydukes, i’m a future pastry chef student and just imagining all the amazing sweets and pastries this shop will have have is making my head spin.
My favorite HP book.. that’s really hard, i do prefer the last three books with their much darker theme to the first four, however if i most choose it has to be The Half Blood Prince. Dumbledore dying, learning more about Snape, and Harry and Ginny.

Definitely a tie between Owl Post, The Three Broomsticks, and walking into Hogwarts!!! My favorite book is……………hmmmmmm…………… I’ll have to go with Order of the Phoenix although Deathly Hallows, Half-Blood Prince, and Prisoner of Azkaban come in a close 2-4

I’m excited about the entire park. The idea of being immersed in the Wizarding World is a thrilling one!
My favorite book has to be Deathly Hallows. The epic scope of the series really becomes obvious. The idea that Rowling had all of that planned blows my mind.

I’m actually listening to the Pottercast Wizarding World report right now and totally geeking out! I think I’m most excited just to walk into Hogwarts itself and to taste real butterbeer! Can’t Wait! My favorite book changes from time to time haha but currently its Deathly Hallows :)
