I was lucky enough to ditch the winter weather and head to Orlando for 3 days – it was just the break I needed!
On day 1 we went to Universal solely because we wanted to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Are tickets pricey? Yes. Was going to Hogwarts worth it? Yes.
Here’s a couple things you have to do if you go to Harry Potter world:
- Get a butter beer because they are sooo yummy!
- Splurge for an interactive wand. It was $55 but doing spells all day and having an awesome wand can’t be beat.
- Wait on line for the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey 3D ride – this ride was NO JOKE. It felt like a real rollercoaster!
- Get ice cream at Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlor. I highly recommend the lavender and earl grey flavor!
The next few days I spent poolside and just soaking up the sun at Westgate Lake Spa and Resort which was a really nice place.
I will recommend Dixie Dharma, a vegan restaurant, if you’re in the area! It was so yummy, it’s a bakery, restaurant, and shop and they had a lot of cool local prints, soaps, candles, etc. for sale.
