I am most excited for ‘The Three Broomsticks’ I want to experience a Butterbeer and a Firewhisky :)
Deathly Hallows is my favorite book. The book that ends it all!
I’m most excited for the food, I think most of all the peanut butter and strawberry ice cream what I can i saw I’m a hufflepuff there is a reason we live next to the Kitchen.
I think My fav book is OotP, we get such wonderful characters in that book, Tonks, Luna, Moody ect..
Oh wow, this is so hard to choose! I think ultimately the thing I am most excited to experience is the overall atmosphere of so many Harry Potter fans coming together to visit a recreation of a world we’ve only ever dreamed of going to. It will be amazing to simply go to a place where asking for a butterbeer or wanting a ride on a dragon would be a normal thing to do. Seeing everyone’s excitement to step into a world of magic, if only for a day (definitely more than that for me!), will be the absolute best part of the theme park for me!
As for my favorite book… I think that would be Sorcerer’s Stone, because it’s the beginning of this amazing series, and I will never forget reading it for the first time. It was magical! :)
I want to to Hogsmeade and try true butterbeer, and seeing Hogwarts in existence! My favorite book, it is so hard to pick!, but I would say the Deathly Hallows, I’m reading all of them for the 10th time!
My name is Lindsay and I’m 18, from Southern Illinois. When I saw this post, I KNEW I had to figure out what I could do to be able to have a chance at this! :) I plan to go to LeakyCon ’11 and that will be my first trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
What I am looking forward to the most at the WWoHP can be reduced to only two things: the Enchanted Journey (not sure if this is right) ride through Hogwarts and just the food in general (OH, my Gosh, Melissa! You have made me so excited about the chocolate cauldrons! rofl)
My favorite Harry Potter book would have to be Deathly Hallows, for sure! :)
I just can’t wait to see the castle. Everything will be great I’m certain but that Castle is something I have been dreaming about for a longggggggggg time.
My favorite book will have to be Prisoner of Azkaban.
The part im most excited about is walking into the castle and thinking im here, im home, i am finally where i truly belong:) My Fav book is Prisoner of Azkaban <3
Hogsmeade Village! And my favorite Harry Potter book is Order of the Phoenix.
The part of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter that I´m most excited to experience is definitely HOGWARTSCASTLE! I´d absolutely love to be inside it- it would be a dream come true!
My favorite Harry Potter book is Harry Potter and the Philosopher´s Stone!
I am looking forward to everything! The effort put into the detail at the park is fantastic, I think the Hogwarts journey through the castle sounds really great. Just to be in and wander the places we have read about and know really well, it’s bloody exciting!
I don’t have a number one favourite book, but Deathly Hallows was definitely a standout, the anticipation of the last book, and reading so fast, I think everyone who read it was not really in touch with the real world much when reading it, I was having dreams about possible endings before I had finished it. Awesome.
Hogwarts Castle! Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is my favorite.
definitely the forbidden journey is the ride I am most looking forward to. favorite book is deathly hallows!
There is not one day that goes by that I do not think of this “world” and how it has finally become a reality for us all! It’s so difficult to pick just one thing, and I probably can’t, but if I had to choose (just simply had to) I guess I’d have to say…the castle itself! Strolling through the the corridors, discovering the portraits…the Great Hall…and the Sorting Hat! I wonder if there will be trophy cases, quills and parchment in the classrooms, and what about Dumbledore’s office? There’s so much to cherish and I can’t wait to do it all – hopefully way more than once in a lifetime!
I’m most looking forward to the moment when I first walk into Hogsmeade. My favorite Harry Potter book is definitely Deathly Hallows.
Oh – my favourite book is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
"You've been wondering whether I put you in the right House," said the hat smartly. "Yes... you were particularly difficult to place. But I stand by what I said before" -- Harry's heart leapt -- "you [i]would[/i] have done well in Slytherin --"[br]Harry's
