    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 :thumbsup2

    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.... :rolleyes1

    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. :sad2: 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. :sad2: Oh well...maybe tomorrow we'll get up and go early for that? :scratchin

    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 :rolleyes1

    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.

    :crazy2:

    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. :rotfl:

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

    We are going in April but are thinking of taking a short trip November 20-23. We will be staying off-site, so no early entry or express passes. We are not Harry Potter fans( yet, we are going to watch the first movie this weekend) so FJ is not a must see at this time. Do you think we will be able to experience WWoHP during this short time or should we just wait until April? Thanks

    This may have been already talked about, I've tried to keep up, but does anyone else think it looks weird that there is "snow" on the roofs but none on the ground... Bugs me. And I'm a native floridian... :rotfl:

    The snow on the ground will have been trodden underfoot and therefore melted and disappeared whereas the snow on the roofs is untouched so lasts longer. ;)

    "Trodden Underfoot" would be a great username.
