I can’t wait to step into Ollivander’s for the first time! And my favourite book is still Order of the Pheonix.

I can’t wait to be able to actually walk into the castle and experience what it would have been like if it was all actually real!
My favourite book is Prisoner of Azkaban because I love that Hermione finally gets to stand up for herself and we meet Sirius.

I just want to see it all, but especially Hogsmeade village. Just see the shops, taste the drinks, Olivanders and be a real part of the wizarding world.
Which nicely hooks into my favourite book being the Prisoner of Azkaban.

I can’t wait to go, and I’m saving although it may take a while as there are four of us in my family and we are in the UK. However I can’t wait to go into Ollivanders to find the wand that chooses me. My favourite book is the Deathly Hallows though, finding the truth about Snape (one of my favourite characters), the epic battle (the Molly Weasley moment) and of course the future. I sobbed when I’d finished that book though – and I’m 36 :-D

The Great Hall! I will probably burst into tears the moment I walk through those doors. My favourite book!!! It could be any of them… Deathly Hallows I guess, because it is a vortex of thrills from start to finish. You open it and then WHOA you’re at the end and your hair’s all messed up from all the wind and you know in your heart that you will never be the same…

I’m most excited to go into the Three Broomsticks and try the butterbeer and all of the other food… because I love food! Just thinking about it makes me hungry :)
And my favorite book is Sorcerer’s Stone because it was what made me fall in love with the magical world and ultimately changed my life!
