Thanks so much to the podcast team, especially John the genius (and Kevin too because the significant others share the stresses), Duane and I had a blast! Can't wait for podcast cruise 4.0!

To whoever put this together, thank you! What a great time!

I did Forbidden Journey 5 times, in line only once, other 4 were walk on- had 3 Butterbeers, and got lots of vid (including 3 complete ride-through vids) and lots of pictures.

Hurtin a bit today, so not ready to edit or write TR, but when I get anything up, I will post here. A couple of personal shots if those folks want to drop me an email I will send you full rez- little "Weasley" boy in big smile and green T in the Magic Shop; and mom and gorgeous daughter I met in line at the front gate while waiting... I was the good looking guy on the little blue ECV!

Forbidden Journey is simply the best ride ever! Amazing! (Even if a few folks couldn't quite handle it! Whoops!)

Thank you for an amazing experience! I didn't get to meet as many people as I hoped but it was an unforgettable weekend!
I woke my 7 year old up at 4:50am on Saturday morning and told him to get dressed because we had a plane to catch! He thought I was kidding until I explained that we had a surprise trip to Florida. Last night as I tucked him in at home at 11pm he said, "Thanks mom for an awesome vacation!" We bought a wand, t-shirts, Crookshanks, Fribbles, candy, etc. (my middle child will probably speak to me again in the year 2050!)
Worth every penny and being exhausted!

Love to all,

The weather was terrific this weekend.

The rain held off until today.

Today it's gloomy, dark and wet.

Yay for the rain holding off!

Coming back to NYC was rough. I walked out of the airport in my t-shirt and fleece and almost instantly turned into a popsicle!

I wanted to quickly say thank you for an awesome event. Having been to WWOHP several times, most recently the day Deathly Hallows 2 came out, it was amazing to experience such a different side of that area. It was beyond nice not to have to fight off a deluge of people to simply cross the streets!

We spent a lot of time wandering through Hogwarts and really looking closely at everything. It was wonderful to see such things up close. I really enjoyed spending time in the Defense Against the Dark Arts room looking at everything.

We rode Forbidden Journey and Dragon Challenge. Dragon Challenge was great fun in the dark - with it being so dark it really felt like you were flying.

The podcast taping was also a blast. So many laughs and some tears too. It also spawned one of my favorite Peteisms: "Europeans are throwing crap."

Also, I was part of the team from the Dis that volunteered at GKTW on Friday morning. What an incredible experience. It really was one of those experiences that made my heart so full with the amazingness of what they do there.

What a great weekend!

Kudos to John. It was a wonderful event. I had a great time. I just got home a few hours ago.

Enjoyed meeting the podcast crew and want to do it again. The podcast was really great and I screamed as loud as I could at the beginning.

It was well done and interesting to see the crew at work. Oh and my sister won Corey's favorite thing which she is very happy about.

Another thank you for a fabulous time. The whole event far exceeded my expectaions (and Kelly was also blown away) by the Harry Potter experience. We had so much fun. Some day we'll go back, and I won't have to worry about going on any of the rides/attractions because nothing could top Saturday night. I would like to see some of the things we missed, though, like the marauders' map, Defense Against the Dark Arts room, and other details like that. The Forbidden Journey is now my all-time favorite attraction - at least, the way we were able to experience it on Saturday.

It was fun seeing friends again, and making new ones. The podcast recording was special, as always, as well as other events that weekend that I hold dear.

Thank you, John, and everyone, for your generosity in putting this together for us.

I just wanted to pop over here and also extend my thanks to John and his team who organized this event. It was a very special weekend and so worth coming down for just a few days. I have dozens of memories that I'm holding dear to me. Thanks again for putting forth such great effort and going out of your way to make things right.

I just wanted to jump in and say thanks as well. We just got back from our 10 day trip last night at the DIS event was by far the highlight of our trip, and that's saying a lot since it was our first Disney Christmas trip. We had a blast and my boys were in Harry Potter heaven all night long. Thanks for an unforgettable evening.
