Anyway after scrimping and scraping for 3 years straight, hubby and I went to Orlando Florida and had a wonderful time...We were lucky enough to visit "The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter" which was absolutely amazing....As we are HUGE Harry Potter geeks, the visit was just the best....We experienced a whole immersion into Harry's world through the gateway into Hogsmeade.... It is so authentic with everything from the Hogwarts Express to Olivanders wand shop (where Harry gets his first wand) to the Owl Post, Honeydukes the sweet shop , Dervish & Banges , Zonkos the joke shop and other authentic locations that HP fans will recognize...But the icing on the cake was the replication of Hogwarts school...Although not full size this recreation is absolutely jawdropping! Such a must for Potter fans...We were like little kids!!!
here are a few pics

You get the chance to sample Butterbeer which is a cross between cream soda and shortbread but fizzy like coke, then they dollop loads of cream on the top...so you wouldn't want one on your own!
I also took one of my girls along to Mouseland.....Catkin my Fairyland littlefee Bisou came out on a few days, so we had some fun with her

It was a long overdue holiday for us and we enjoyed every minute of it....We stayed a lot by the pool because of my anxiety issues and Andy's bad back, but what a lovely way to spend a day...Feeding squirrels every morning and just taking it all in....
