We're also thrilled that we made the trek down on June 7-9. The onsite previews were the best thing ever.

We'll be back the end of August. I can't wait!!!

Oh wow!!! I am getting really discouraged. We will be leaving in four days for my son's wish trip and I don't know if we are even going to be able to get into see WWOHP now. There is no way he'd be able to stand in line that long

Pitbull is the concert tonight. Maybe both those rides are down right now? They were both listed yesterday.

There's a pretty strong thunderstorm going on over by the park now, pouring rain and saw some hail. It'll be gone by the concert, but I'm wondering what that's doing to the potter folks.

Is it storming right now? I just saw that many of the rides in IOA aren't available right now.

Tons of rain, thunder and lightning here in Celebration and the radar didn't look too good over Uni. I was planning to run over there after the storm but it didn't seem to let up early enough to do very much. Oh well, might go tomorrow night. I want to see Hogwarts in the dark. Never got to do that at the softs since it always closed so early.

And my favorite is a Quote from Erma Bombeck: "The grass is always greener over the septic tank."

After that we got in line at the butter beer cart and waited about 15-20 minutes to find out no frozen is available.

We then went inside the Three Broom Sticks for some dinner. We both got a frozen butter beer and fish and chips. We both agreed that the meal was quite good and that the service and order within the Broomsticks was top notch. I think this is the way all counter service should be done, its very organized. And yes even at 9:00 PM we still had to wait roughly 15 minutes to get through and be seated.

After we were done eating we attempted to go into Dervish and Banges but the line was to big and the rain had begun to pick up a little more. We stopped by Honey Dukes and Zonkos on the way out. I had already been but my wife loved the whole thing and has never seen or read anything Harry Potter. I can't wait to get back there I just love the whole thing. Everyone must get out there as soon as they can. Here are a couple of pictures from tonight, most are not as good as I wanted but due to rain I didn't really have the time to adjust to the darkness. Hope you enjoy anyways!

Oh also on a side note I forgot how awesome IOA is at night, I plan on taking advantage of later hours throughout the summer to experience not only Potter but all the other great attractions. On to the pictures...
