Leaky and PotterCast Visit Wizarding World of Harry Potter Park


May 29, 2010

Posted by Melissa Anelli

Today, Leaky’s PotterCast Trio went to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter as part of a morning-hours special preview for Universal hotel guests (that is still ongoing!), and captured a ton of pictures, videos, interviews and more that we are currently editing and preparing for posting! Meanwhile, enjoy this, our first joined experience of the magical substance known as butterbeer.

(Butterbeer is $8.50 if you buy the stein, $4.25 for a refill frozen and a little less (exact number forthcoming) for a refill cold. It is nonalcoholic, but the Hog’s Head Ale – which is as alcoholic as any other beer – is $6.50 without the souvenir stein and $11 with it.)

Info, pics and more to come shortly!
