Universal Orlando's official website for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter was the recipient of the Webby Award for best tourism web site this evening.

The Webby Awards honors the top websites on the Internet, and voters are made up of members from the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences. In addition to the officially judged Webby award, the Wizarding World website was also picked as a People's Voice Winner which was voted for by the online community.

Actor Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) attended the ceremony in New York City where he presented Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour with the award for Best Fashion Website. Photos of Radcliffe at the ceremony can be seen here in the Leaky galleris!

That’s really cool. I’ve wanted to go there forever… but I have a 15 month old sister, and my mom’s expecting, so it’s not very realistic right now. :( That’s cool that Dan was there. :)

OK… I’m just trying to work out why that website is worthy of an award…
It reminds me of every other content-light entirely flash-based website designed since 2000 :/

Guess That Book

"Well -- it's not funny really -- but as it's Filch," he said. "A Squib is someone who was born into a wizarding family but hasn't got any magic powers. Kind of the opposite of Muggle-born wizards, but Squibs are quite unusual."
