I don't know when I'll be able to go, probably not for a couple of years at least, so I really should stop torturing myself. But yeah, it looks totally amazing, and if I have to wait my whole life to go, it will probably be worth it.

Avatar ImageMr. Brightside says: I have to save money for LeakyCon! And so do you all "i won't go" people1 LeakyCon is a year away so we still have time! Lol Melissa has been there before right...?

I cannot bear living on another frickin continent than that park! OK, exaggerating bit time, but that's kind of the reaction I had just upon seeing the butterbeer mug. I WANT ONE!Avatar ImageLupa says: *big time (not "bit time"), whops.Avatar Imagebeallgood01 says: Great video gang. Please talk to some more of the park employees and some children. Hoist a butterbeer for me.Avatar Imagecoolgirl224 says: I Really want to go! It looks so cool! Unforatntaly I won't be able to go unless I win a sweepstakes I entered, but I dought it. So I am saving up to go next year!Avatar ImageRinny says: anyone notice that the guy said "young children who have grown up with the series"? hate to break it to you guy, but the people who have grown up with harry potter are all in the 20s now. The young kids are the late starters. we still love them, though.Avatar ImageRavenclawGirl13 says: OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is so awesome! I must go! Does anyone know where the nearest portkey to WWOHP is?Avatar ImageRavenclawGirl13 says: OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageRavenclawGirl13 says: OMG!!!!1Avatar ImageRavenclawGirl13 says: This looks Awesome! 100th Comment from me!Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: Looks like the butterbeers are not only served ice-cold, but in plastic mugs as well. Do they even have plastic in the wizarding world? Wouldn't you think that would kind of fall into the same "Muggle stuff" category as electronic devices? I want to drink my butterbeer out of a real stoneware or metal tankard - or at least glass.Avatar ImageGwynogs_rabbit says: "Son of a motherless goat" rofl!!! Weenyowl, have you been to central Florida? You'll lose all desire for a butterbeer that warms you up - I can't WAIT fro frozen butterbeer, yay!Avatar ImageHagrid 713 says: Next year - I hope!!Avatar Imagemolly43 says: I hope they sell butterbeer mugs made of glass or pottery material - not plastic. For what I want to accomplish, it may take 3-5 yrs to afford to go. There's so much to see and buy. For those of you who don't have the money - there's joy in the planning - so plan even if you don't have the money. You may not always be in that situation. Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: That is amazing!Avatar ImageTheRealSlytherinHeir says: Amazing! I can't wait to go! Avatar Imagesongbird says: I can't wait to see it!! I can't wait for July! Wish I was going one month earlier for the opening!Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: I'm so jealous but I can't watch too much or I spoil it for next year when I go. Not even eczema can stop me.Avatar Imagedecarus says: The might not want to have glass cups outside because people act stupid when it gets late and they get drunk. Though there are a lot of bars outside Islands of adventure and universal. Avatar Imagevandy says: You guys are so lucky...and thank you for uploading this !
