I almost feel as though this post needs a disclaimer. Yes, I absolutely loved the Hogsmeade portion of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando, but I didn’t fall in love with it to the same degree that I did with Diagon Alley the day before. Still, the pull of seeing Hogwarts castle was an undeniable highlight.
For as long as I can remember, books have played a huge role in my life and in who I am. I could read before the age of 3, and to this day, escaping through words into a world of imagination and adventure is one of my favorite ways to pass the time. I have loved just about every book I have ever come across, but one series in particular stole my heart from the moment I opened the first book – the Harry Potter series.
I didn’t know what to expect when cruising, really, as the only one I had been on prior to this wasn’t long enough for us to have a room or even eat aboard the ship. Luckily, I enjoyed every minute of our cruise!
