I’m most looking forward to seeing the new technology they used to make it look like the actors are there with you and the moving portraits.

My favorite HP book is Deathly Hallows. So emotional!

I can’t even pick a favourite place… I’d have to say the Hogwarts Express though… Or maybe just walking through it… Or the Leaky Cauldron… Hm… I’ll go with the train ^^
And my favourite HP book is Deathly Hallows, hands down.<3

The most exciting thing will be visiting the Hogwarts castle! I believe it’ll be more brilliant than the actual rides.
Prisoner of Azkaban wins for my favorite book!

I can’t wait to see Durvish and Banges! And my favorite book? Harry Potter and the Deathy Hallows because although it’s sad and the epilogue leaves quite a bit unwritten, I have seen many series go downhill and end with a boring final book, but Jo has kept me interested all the way to the end! Even though it contradicted most of my predictions, Deathly Hallows is better than the best final book I hoped for!

My favorite part of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter will just seeing Hogwarts in the distance while I’m driving towards it. The suspense will grow as the park grows bigger and bigger. And walking in will be amazing…and so will everything else.

And my favorite book is DEFINITELY Half-Blood Prince :) LOVE!

I want to try Butterbeer so badly, to sit in a corner of the Three Broomsticks with a couple of my best friends and an endless supply of butterbeer is a perfect dream. Something I’ve wanted since reading Prisoner of Azkaban. My favourite book has to be Deathly Hallows

Posted by KiwiMcI on May 06, 2010, 09:16 PM report to moderator

I want to go all over the park, every place, every corner, and every vestige of magic that I can find. I love all books but my favorite is Deathly Hallows!
