It's always better to give, plain and simple.

Most everything Griffyndor was sold out opening week when we were there. We did find a few pins at the airport store. I'm surprised they haven't restocked yet, we were there almost a month ago! Think what they could be selling if they were able to keep the stuff in stock!

and Gryff keychains...that was the other thing she was looking for (besides the pigmy puff)

It's all good tho...now when DH & I come back in Oct, I have some birthday & Christmas gift ideas for her

I wonder if they have that mdse and are 'keeping it' till the convention people start going (tonite)? If not, there's gonna be a BUNCH of ticked off conventioners....

Thanks for the reminder! I keep forgetting about that one.

So that's three rides total that don't have express...

Does anyone know what she says? I guess there are more than 1 or 2 scenes, right?

Also, we will have a 2 park ticket for the day and will try to ride RRR. how is the wait time for that right now?
Does Harry take all the visitors? Or is there still a 60 or 90 min wait?
I highly recommend you visit the bathroom to hear her during early entry. Even then, it's sometimes hard to hear her because of the handdryers and flushing going on.

I went yesterday morning ON PURPOSE (i didn't have to actually go to the bathroom) to hear her. There was 1 lady w/ her young daughter in there. I found a speaker in the ceiling and stood under it to try to hear her. It is VERY faint and I couldn't really make out what she was saying (then again, I'm no Potterhead either). That lady looked at me weird and I explained what I was doing. She then told her little girl to quit playing with the hand dryer and come listen. She was thrilled to hear it and thanked me for pointing it out to her. So, if you want to hear her, you need to do it during early entry...earlier the better so it's less busy in there.

As for HRRR, I've been here since Tuesday afternoon, and still haven't ridden it. The one morning niece & I were at HP, DH & DS didn't want to wait for us after their breakfast, so they went there (first thing when park opened...no more than 20 min wait). The line gets long quick, and we didn't make it yesterday (on our way back from HP) ... mostly because a tour group was ahead of us. The line had to be an hour right off the bat. Oh well...maybe tomorrow we'll get up and go early for that?

Hmm, sounds like you might be better off going to Hot Topic or a bookstore for Gryffindor merchandise.

That's disappointing and I heard they don't have a lot of plush merchandise either.

DH & I are coming back in October...I'll check for stuff then. Niece (aka Potterhead) happens to have a birthday around Thanksgiving...right before Christmas...oh how convenient

There's also a couple other things she's deciding on (she's on limited funds...her OWN funds) and we'll probably buy them when we come back for birthday/Christmas gifts.

btw...we all decided we don't really care all that much for Pumpkin Juice (DH likes it best) but determined it mostly tastes like applejuice w/ cinnamon and a touch of pumpkin.

LOL! Eh, they are smart if you think about it. Someone will want that bottle but can't go to Orlando right this second. (*coughs, whistles and looks around innocently*)

To be honest, the stuff could be absolutely horrendous, but I still plan on buying one in Oct just to have that stupid bottle.

Our family really likes apple cider, so we liked the pumpkin juice.
