Diagon Alley

This past weekend Steven and I were attending three Warped Tour dates to see The Protomen. One of the dates happened to be in Orlando and since they were only playing for 30 minutes, Steven suggested we go check out Diagon Alley. Now, anyone who knows me knows I'm a huge Harry Potter nerd (read: psycho) but I had fully intended on waiting until the crowds died down a bit. We live in Florida and it's not a big deal to drive up to Universal for the day. HOWEVER, since he suggested it... how could I turn it down?! I'm so glad we went, it wasn't nearly as crowded as I thought it would be and the weather was actually really great. It was overcast most of the day so the heat was completely bearable, which says a lot coming from me because I'm a huge baby about the heat. The only real waiting around we did was for Escape from Gringotts because a) it's new and b) it broke down while we were in line. But besides that minor 4 hour delay, the day was wonderful and I'm so happy I got to experience it with my best friend.

I can't wait to go back in December! I already wish I had another butterbeer this morning.

  1. Love this! I'm glad you had a good time... other than waiting 3 hours for Gringotts.
