A peek into the Wizarding World of Harry Potter...

So a couple of you have asked for more pictures, and I'm only too happy to oblige. ;D I didn't have a wide range to choose from because my camera is only so-so, and I was a little too overwhelmed with excitement to take enough pictures. But that only means I have to go back down, right? :D

Opening view of Hogsmeade.

Sign above The Three Broomsticks.

Another view of the castle - it was so huge! All the people look like little ants compared to it.

The Weasley Ford Anglia.

Traditional English breakfast from The Three Broomsticks - so much food, but so good. I'd never had black pudding before.

Hog's Head Bar. ;D The head would move and snort occasionally.

House points! Poor Ravenclaw. :(

Entrance to Dumbledore's office.

One of the rooms in the castle - it felt like it went on forever. It was too dark to see whether any of the portraits were actually moving or not.

I just thought it was funny that anything that was 'employees only' said 'No Muggles' instead.

The Sorting Hat! He moved and talked too.

Beauxbatons and Durmstrang students - they did the dance routines from the fourth film.

The sign for Ollivander's.

Inside of Ollivander's - it was so perfect! It was messy and there were wands absolutely everywhere. Stack on the stares, on the counter, on the floor - literally crammed everywhere.

The Monster Book of Monsters. He was so cute! He'd come up to the side of the cage and growl and snap.

And last, but not least, a quick walk down Hogsmeade village and up to the castle. Sorry for the shaky camera. Oh, and the screeching mandrakes. 


  1. Oh my gosh, it all looks AMAZING! Thanks for putting up more pics!

  2. You guys will definitely have to go one day. ;D It's worth every penny, I swear.

  3. Amazing, amazing, AMAZING! Can't wait to see it for myself one day!

  4. Totally fun photo essay. I wanna go!

  5. @Aylee: You have to! It's too magical for words. ;D

    @Lisa: Thanks! (btw, my review for Waterfall is scheduled for next week! I totally loved it!)

  6. I want to hop on a plane. RIGHT. NOW. I need to visit the castle. D:

  7. @Emi: DO IT. Sneak into the cargo hold if you have to.
