Harry Potter Travels

The Warner Bros. Studio Tour is an ideal treat for muggles who want to continue their Harry Potter addiction. In fact, the magic at ‘The Making of Harry Potter’ in London (England) is so powerful that even if you haven’t seen or read any of the adventures, you’ll still have the best time.

The many interactive features of the tour are sure to have you fluttering with excitement (golden snitch style). To name only a schmidgen, there’s a triple-decker purple bus (yes, Potter lovers, it’s the amazingly cool night bus), scarily real goblin masks, and a special effects room (spot of quidditch anyone?).

My personal favourite is the flying car from the second book, ‘…The Chamber of Secrets’.

You might have been able to tell that already though. You can even stand on Hogwarts Bridge.

You’ll start in a group and you’re then left to your own devices (though I’m sure the Marauders Map will know what mischief you’re up to). I’d recommend the audio tour so you can listen to more information as and when you want to.

All senses are looked after on the tour, taste included. I double dare you to try the Butterbeer.

Milk moustaches are so last season. It’s all about the Butterbeer bristles.

High five to my sister for letting me put this pic up. Sometimes it pays to be the photographer!

The customer service is second to none; cheery staff who really embody that ‘All American y’all have a nice day attitude’, and the queues (if there any) are fast moving with plenty to look at to keep you entertained.

Harry Potter (are you saying it in Professor McGonagalls voice too?) is a national treasure.  The books by JK Rowling are a huge part of my childhood (okay, teens), as I’m sure they are for so many others. I mean, the series to date has sold over 450 million copies worldwide and has been translated into more than 70 languages, so I’m sure you must be a fan too.

My sister and I had our noses glued to the books, unwilling to put them down until we reached the end. We hung on every word and loved being transported to an exciting, magical world (secretly hoping it might be real). We also really enjoyed the films. It was sad when the credits for the last instalment rolled up on the big screen.

The experience at the Warner Bros. Studio Tour was a perfect thank you present for my sister, particularly as it gave me an excuse to go too.  There are plenty of reasons to visit London and this makes my top ten.

Now that The Wizarding World of Harry Potter  at the Universal Resort, in Orlando (Florida) has opened, I’m dying to check it out. Even the website is ridiculously exciting. My sister and I had already poured over the details in great detail, but even as my lovely hosts (Visit Orlando) at Circus spoke about it, my giddiness remained sky high.

Unlike the Studio Tour, there are rollercoasters and rides, (Flight of the Hippogriff, Dragon Challenge, and Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey), and even Ollivanders Wand Shop, where you can watch a wand choose a wizard.

At the risk of sounding like a total super fan, you can even dine at the Three Broomsticks, and take a ride on Hogwarts Express. You definitely don’t need children to visit Orlando. In fact, I think I have enough excitement to qualify as at least five children! Have you been? I’d love to hear what you thought.

If you’ve been or are going to the Warner Bros. Studio Tours in London, I’d also really like to hear about your wizarding adventures and affections. X

P.S. I’m totally team Gryffindor. Are you?

    Ahhh I would LOVE to visit there!! I’ve been to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter twice and am actually headed back to Orlando tomorrow… but for work. There may be a late night visit to Diagon Alley, though. :)

    And yes, total team Gryffindor. I rock my Potter Quidditch jersey all the time. Swing by if you want and check out my posts from Orlando!

    Wow, Orlando for work?! That sounds fun. What do you do? Super jealous of your late night visit!

    Will definitely have a look. Thanks for popping by :)

    I’m a marketing professional at a software company. I get to travel for conferences and such! So far work has taken me to Los Angeles and Orlando. I’ll actually be heading back to Orlando in early October, too. It’s a popular place for conferences. :)

    Sounds like a good job. If you ever fancy being interviewed as part of my Travel Job section drop me a line (taylorheartstravel@gmail [dot] com). I’m always on the look out for people who have jobs that allow them to travel, especially ones that are different to the typical tour guide or rep. :)

    Have fun in Orlando. I hope it’s not all work and that you get to play too!

    Oh, my! Looks amazing! What about the Burrow, was it there by any chance? Probably my most favorite movie setting from the series..

    Yay, a fellow Harry Potter fan! Yep, it’s there in the Big Room. http://www.wbstudiotour.co.uk/en/tour/tour This link should take you to the tour map – you can then see a picture of it. I hope you get to visit soon.
