All Muggles Welcome
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando is now officially open to the public. Many fans of Harry Potter have been waiting for the chance to see the most realistic creation of Hogwarts and then some.
NBC's Today Show held a contest to find the "most extraordinary class" to be chosen to be one of the first visitors to the new attraction. A 1st grade class from San Antonio, Texas and their very enthusiastic teacher were the lucky ones to be chosen by viewers out of four finalists from around the country.
I like Harry Potter, but I am by no means a die-hard fan that knows every last detail. (For that I rely on my Harry Potter Wiki.) I do have some fanatics in my family though. I have a niece that will be going to the Wizarding World in July, and a sister who is planning to take her family later in the year.
Whenever I do go to Orlando, Florida, I'll be sure to add this visit to my list. Click here for more pictures of this week's opening night festivities.
