Florida/ Harry Potter World – January 2017

 

Florida is amazing, truly one of my favourite places.We arived in Florida a few days after new years it was slightly cool but still warm enough to wear shorts.Now the main reason we went to Florida was because i had recently read the harry potter books and loved them so much! So i was so excited to be going to Harry Potter world in universal.

Harry Potter world is amazing! Its just like walking into your imagination(If you love harry potter). There are two main sides of harry potter world Hogsmeade and Dragon Alley, you can take the Hogwarts express between the two parks. It is incredibly interactive and lively at harry potter world. There is so much to do.

Rides- The Forbidden Journey – you get to walk through Hogwarts while waiting in line – wound not recommend if easily motion sick. Flight of the Hippogriff- Short but fun ride- great for little kids- very hard to get motion sick on. The Escape from Gringotts- Get to walk through gringotts (amazing)- Fast ride and get whipped around a lot, beware of a drop.

Eats- The leaky cauldron and Three broom sticks. If you don’t want to eat in harry potter world there are various places to eat around universal.

Coco Beach

Coco Beach is just over an hour away from Orlando, Florida. It has beautiful oceans and beaches, we ate at a board walk resturant for lunch. After spending some time we decided to go to the Kennedy Space Center. It is so cool, especially if you are fascinated by space (like me).

There are so cool things to see at the Kennedy space center. There are many shows and observatories as well as an amazing space simulator area. I am sure there is something for every one here. It was too bad we didn’t have more time here but hopefully i can go back sometime soon! IMG_2770.JPGThis picture was taken in Disney Springs (used to be Downtown Disney), at the Ghiradelli ice cream place. They have so many amazing flavours and sundaes to choose from! We were lucky enough to meet up with one of my friends and her family this night. Disney Springs is so fun, it is primarily made up of stores and restaurants, a great place to go during the evening.IMG_4008
