Hogsmeade, and having a butterbeer. Favourite book is definitely Half-Blood Prince.
Can’t wait to see Hogwarts. And my fave book – Prisoner of Azkaban
I can’t wait to experience Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey. My favourite book is The Goblet of Fire
I’m most excited about visting Hogsmeade! And my favorite book is Order of the Phoenix.
I’m seriously excited about walking through Hogwarts – it’ll be like one of my goals in life! (eh… maybe. ;) )
my favorite book has got to be order of the phoenix, cause it was really interesting to see a brooding Harry, as opposed to the normally super-heroic golden savior of Britain. Though, my favorite audio book has to be Half-Blood Prince, as that one just SOUNDS better…
Definitely The Leaky Cauldron! and Favorite book? Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
Will be visiting this summer for sure. OMT
I’m most excited to go into Hogwarts and try all the food there, it sounds amazing! And my favourite book is Order of the Phoenix.
I am looking forward to wandering around in Ollivander’s. My fav book is Prisoner of Azkaban.
Can’t wait to see Hogwarts =]
Favorite book is by far Deathly Hallows
I can’t wait to visit all of the Hogsmeade shops! Just being able to walk around Harry’s world, really.
My fav book is Half-Blood Prince. :)
I think my most anticipated part of the experience will be visiting the castle and tasting the butterbeer – can’t wait! My favorite book is Half-Blood Prince, because I knew at the end of it that Snape was on Harry’s side.
I can’t wait to experience the rides – wizard style!
OMG. Ever since I heard about this theme park, I’ve been keeping a very watchful eye on Leaky and any other news online for pictures, updates, etc. I can’t wait for the Three Broomsticks AND Hogwarts castle! My favorite book is still the very first one, The Sorcerer’s Stone (along with the movie, in which I can say every line along with the characters!!)
I am looking forward to the three broom sticks. I am curious to see how they take food items from the series and create them for our pleasure.
I must say that I still like the Sorcerer’s Stone, I enjoy how both Diagon Alley and Hogwarts are described.
(though I must admit Dumbledore’s visit to the Dursley’s house is one of my favorite scenes out of all of the books.)
I cannot begin to write how excited I am for Hogwarts! To be able to walk into a tangible school that I’ve been reading about since I was 11 years old will be such a special experience for me. I know that I will just want to sit inside Dumbledore’s office all day :)
As far as my favorite book, each one has something unique to offer. Yet I would have to say my favorite is Deathly Hallows…the way she was able to tie everything together and incorporate small details from the first books into the end of the series will always amaze me.
"I was at Hogwarts meself but I -- er -- got expelled, ter tell yeh the truth. In me third year. They snapped me wand in half an' everything. But Dumbledore let me stay on as gamekeeper. Great man, Dumbledore."
