Disney World and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Hey guys!

I hope the holiday season is finding you all well! Last week, I turned in my final papers and since then, have been enjoying winter break with family and friends. On the way home, I got to officially see Washington D.C. for the first time while visiting a friend on the drive home to New Jersey.

This week, I’m crossing some new items off the bucket list on a Florida adventure with mom. Never too old, right? The two previous summer’s I’ve gone to Disney, I was four and twelve years old, so it’s exciting experiencing Disney a decade later during the holiday season, as well as some rides I’ve never been on such as the Tower of Terror. Another first will be seeing the new Harry Potter theme park, where we will venture to this weekend. After we return, I’ll be sure to share some photos from the trip!

For now, here’s some previous Disney throwbacks:

For all you Disney fans, anyone have any favorite attractions, locations, or restaurants you would recommend? I’d love to hear your suggestions!

I’d also love to hear about your winter plans and goals for the New Year. Are you taking some time to relax or going somewhere new? What are some things you hope to accomplish this year?

I look forward to hearing your updates!

    Well, you couldn’t have picked a better time. Florida right now is going through a very mild cold front, temperatures these days (down about an hour and a half south of Orlando) are kicking into the high 70’s. Hope you enjoy your visit.. and I would recommend something, but it has been forever since I have been up there (tends to be a trait of us native Floridians I hear).

  2. Not sure if they have the Buzz Lightyear attraction as well over there, but it is at least my favourite from our ‘little’ European Disneyland Paris :D.

  4. R. Todd- no not all Floridians. Raised and still live in Florida about 1 hour away on the Coast! Go and just have fun!!! CLW

    YES! Harry Potter World is the best place! You will have so much fun! Drink all the butterbeer and pumpkin juice and eat all the Berty Bott’s Every Flavor Beans!

  7. HARRY POTTER WORLD hands down 🙂 ive been twice – and you must get tickets to both universal parks so you can ride the hogwarts train. Butterbeer is the first thing you should consume. The castle ride and triwizard dragon coaster are the 2 beat rides. You will have a blast!

  9. Gotta love a bit of Disney. But Harry Potter is awesome too. Mmmm… Butterbeer!
