I can’t wait to run through the streets of Hogmeade, and buy as many chocolates from Honeydukes as I can.
My favourite Harry Potter book would have to be Prisoner of Azkaban, as that was the point where I started to really get into the series, and find others who liked it to. It’s of sentimental value to me.

I’m looking forward to visit Ollivanders’ shop. My favorite book is definitely Deathly Hallows because of the Ron / Hermione final kiss.

Probably Honeydukes, but I’m looking forward to all of Hogsmeade!

And Deathly Hallows is definitely my favorite.

I’d love to visit the Hogwarts castle. And my favorite book is the Deathly Hallows, I think … but the Goblet of Fire is a close second!

What I am most excited about, is walking into the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I can’t wait to feel the magic the themepark brings, and finally being able to walk into the magic world. I am excited about all the little details in Hogsmead and Hogwarts, anything that makes the magical world from the books real!

I can’t wait to walk into Hogwarts because it is such a beautiful location in the books. My favorite book is Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone because this book holds the magic and wonder of all childhood fantasies and imaginary worlds.

I’m excited to see the whole park, but specifically the portrait gallery! After I heard about it, I would go to Orlando just for that!

I’m not big on rides but I would love to try some of the foods that we read so much about in the books. Butter beer sound particularly good.
I don’t have a favorite book, they have all been my favorite at one point in time. right now though I would have to say Deathly Hallows it at the top.

I am VERY much looking forward to the ride through Hogwarts! It seems like so much fun, being able to see everything you see in the movies! And if I had to pick my favorite book (which is a RELLY hard chioce) I would have to say Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows because of all the sadness and romance! It was very well written :)!
