First I will apologize for my lack of pics .. I'm not sure what I did with my camera during this portion of the trip .. but for some reason I was real stingy with pics .. I know I was pretty overwhelmed and still tired from the trip down .. that's my excuse and I'm stickin' to it !

So after we left the wand shop Allyson said there was a few things she wanted to show us. The boys weren't interested in going on Flight of the Hippogriff but she said there was some cool stuff leading up to the ride. So we followed her along a path that had some great views of Hogwarts ..

[IMG][/IMG]
[IMG][/IMG]

Hagrids hut ..

[IMG][/IMG]

The actual car they used in the Chamber of Secrets ! I loved this ..

[IMG][/IMG]
[IMG][/IMG]

[IMG][/IMG]

I really tried to convince the boys to go on the Hippogriff ride .. but it was a no go .. but Jayden said he'll go in it next trip !

After strolling around with Allyson a bit more .. we parted ways and we were on our own !
We were able to go into the stores without waiting in line by showing the person at the doors our passes and pins so we browsed around .. but found it was so crowded it wasn't really fun .. not to mention if you want to buy anything you have to wait in long lines for that as well !
I took a few pics along the way ..

[IMG][/IMG]

I was sort of eager to go back over to Suess Landing .. but the boys had no interest in riding anything. I have NO idea what I did with my camera during this time !!

We did ride on the train (no cameras allowed) and ate at Circus McGurkius cafe. The food was very good .. we had fried chicken and it was very tasty !

From there we walked around to the Marvel area and rode on Spiderman .. this ride was awesome !! We loved it .. then we circled around more and came across Jurassic Park ..

[IMG][/IMG]
[IMG][/IMG]

We didn't stay long .. the boys wanted to go back to GKTW and swim .. so we made our way back over to WWoHP so Jeremy could buy something for himself ..

[IMG][/IMG]

It's Lucius Malfoy's wand/walking cane. It was pretty expensive, but pretty much the only thing he really wanted.

Some pics of Hogwarts I snapped along our journey .. I couldn't get enough of this .. it's so cool to look at !

[IMG][/IMG]
[IMG][/IMG]

A last shot of Hogsmeade ..

[IMG][/IMG]

It was still packed and we were hot and tired .. so we called it a day and headed back to GKTW. After all .. it was 90 degrees out AND it was Christmas at the village !

Will the boys see Santa and get gifts ?? I think you all know the answer to that !

More to come soon ..

I've never read a HP book nor seen one of the movies, but your TR is making me want to find a copy so we can all watch it this weekend before our trip! Hmm...I wonder if I can track one down!?

Can't wait to hear more!!

Yes !! You should. Just the first one would really help you "get" the WWoHP. Plus it's my favorite ... Although the boys love the very last one. We lucked out and the family channel showed almost every one like a week before our trip.
