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!
The maze from ‘The Goblet of Fire’.
My favorite Harry Potter book is, The Goblet of Fire.
I can’t wait for the Forbidden Journey ride.
Favorite Harry Potter book: Half-Blood Prince.
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
Looking forward to walking the halls of Hogwarts!!
And my favorite HP book would have to be Deathly Hallows!
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!
Order of the Phoenix
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!
hogwarts i could want to see nothing more!!!
and my favorite book is the half blood prince because it was really interesting to delve into voldemorts murky past
I’m so excited to be able to have a wand choose me! And my favorite book is Prisoner of Azkaban, I love me some Prof. Lupin!
The Forbidden Journey of course!! Fave Book: Deathly Hallows!
Im totally excited about Hogsmeade! :) I always imagined myself there while reading the books, and it would be a bloody brilliant moment when I do!
And my fave HP book has got to be Deathly Hallows. Epic completes it.
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
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!
Four fully grown, enormous, vicious-looking dragons were rearing onto their hind legs inside an enclosure fenced with thick planks of wood, roaring and snorting -- torrents of fire were shooting into the dark sky from their open, fanged mouths, fifty feet
