When I was a little girl my mother read the Harry Potter books to us. I always left the room because I got scared. When the first movie came out my whole family went to see it; it was so crowded we had to sit in the front row of the movie theater. When I finished seeing the movie I was amazed- that was when I got hooked. I love the entire series, from beginning to end, but I must say that Deathly Hallows was my favorite one. It’s when Harry ended his journey and that ‘Happily Ever After’ became a reality. The Harry Potter series got me to LOVE reading and I think it changed my life in many ways.

When I go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter I will be excited to see everything, of course, but I will most love to see the Leaky Cauldron and drink some butterbeer, the the Hogwarts castle and explore and to Honeydukes because who doesn’t love candy? It will be amazing to experience Hogwarts for real and not just in our imaginations

Thank you :D

Definitely the The Three Broomsticks because of the Butter Beer and pumpkin juice. My favorite book is Order of the Phoenix.

I’m most excited to walk through Hogwarts.
My favorite book is probably Prisoner of Azkaban followed closely by Deathly Hallows.

I would love to see the Gryffindor common room. Do they have that at the theme park? I haven’t been following the updates so I’m not actually sure lol (oops). As for my favorite book, that would be Deathly Hallows.

reading everyone’s comments i want to go to the wizarding world sooooo bad right now!! Does everyone else inhale quickly whenever they go through the map on the Wizarding World website and see Hogsmede?

I really want a wand so i’ve got to say—Olivander’s! I’m really hoping that getting a wand is an ‘experience’ though the line up will surely be so long! And my fave book is the Half-blood Prince.

The Post office appeals to me the most. You think about all those Hogwarts letters that you swear got misplaced from your address, and now people can send messagesby ‘owl’ that look wizard-like.
My favorite book is Half-Blood prince. Its the last year of full school, but Harry’s world has to start expanding beyond Hogwarts.
