Let’s take the kids to Hogwarts

A virtual visit to Wizarding World

You didn’t get your Hogwarts letter via Owl Post? We didn’t either.The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter Diagon Alley

Since getting to Hogwarts right now is as difficult as trying to find your way in a flying Ford Anglia, we opted to tour The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – at Universal Studios Orlando and the Islands of Adventure Theme Park – virtually.

Grab a Butterbeer (here’s a recipe so you can make your own at home) and queue up.

Take your time and go slowly – there are plenty of details you might miss otherwise. (Though you can learn many of them here.)
