I am most excited to visit Ollivander’s. I can’t wait to have a wand choose me!
My favorite Harry Potter book remains to this day, The Sorcerer’s Stone. It just set the tone so well for the rest of the series. Really sucked me in, you know!

I’m looking forward to seeing the movie memorabilia inside Hogwarts Castle and to the experience of buying a wand that will choose me. :-)
My favorite Harry Potter book is a tie between Prisoner of Azkaban and Deathly Hallows.

I am most excited to experience Hogwarts castle because it contains the concentration of all the magic for me, where Harry learns everything he knows about magic, loyalty, friendship, bravery, and himself, and where he feels at home. My favorite book is Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix because of the union of the students to form Dumbledore’s Army and stand up to Umbridge’s tyrannical control and the lies of the Ministry of Magic.

Hogwarts Itself!!!! Everything about it sounds amazing!!!

Favorite Book: Goblet of Fire! Darker tone, the introduction to new characters, and the begging of the end with Harry and Voldemort!

I’m looking forward to obsessing over every little detail of the castle and quoting lines (and making puns) with my friends while waiting in line to be utterly amazed. And my favourite book is Order of the Phoenix.

My favourite HP book is definitely Deathly Hallows. So well written and just brilliant. As for the theme park…like many before me said, walking through the doors of Hogwarts. It would be a dream come true. (and going to Honeydukes _)

BUTTERBEER. Oh, my god, it’s going to be amazing.
And my favourite book is probably Half Blood Prince. But choosing is so, so hard.

I cannot wait to eat some treacle tart and drink pumpkin juice in the Great Hall. Also, I want to tame the Horntail (or maybe just ride on one). My favorite book, at the moment, is Goblet of Fire.

I’m very excited to stroll down the streets of Hogsmeade and feel canon, as if I was in the series myself! My favourite book is either Deathly Hallows or The Philosopher’s Stone.

Guess That Book

To the class's horror, Hagrid proceeded to explain that the reason the skrewts had been killing one another was an excess of pent-up energy, and that the solution would be for each student to fix a leash on a skrewt and take it for a short walk.
