Walking into Hogwarts’ll probably make me cry. :)
But I’m a sucker for rollercoasters, so Dragon Challenge!
My favorite Potter book is Goblet of Fire.
So much imagery! :D
Favorite Book: Deathly Hallows, of course
And… I want to visit Zonko’s, experience some of the magic. _
wow. a boxed set. no more trips to the library, i’ll own them! i can’t even imagine…
okay, well…what am i looking forward to at WWoHP? …wow. everything. i don’t think i can chose just one thing. possibly hogwarts itself, and the ride there in…but…according to melissa, the food will be fantastic—so that too. and ollivanders. especially ollivanders. and most importantly having my wand choose me. oohh, yeah, that. that is my #1 thing.
my favorite book? well, on my profile i think it says book 7…which is not entirely true…its a tie between deathly hallows & sorcerers/philosophers stone. book seven because it is the adventure of all adventures and the ending is just…perfect. book one because it is the beginning of everything. and entering the wizarding world for the first time with harry, with the awe, the shock, and the wonder—-that easily rivals the brilliant ending to the series. :)
I’m most excited to see The Leaky Cauldron! To walk through the doors that started it all… Amazing :) My favorite HP book is Deathly Hallows
I’m so excited about Hogsmeade and of course the food that will leave me fat and poor. :DDD
I want to taste the butterbeer!
My favorite harry potter book is order of the phoenix
i can’t wait to see IT ALL in Orlando! Most excited about the journey that the trio takes us on. My favorite book is the Deathly Hallows (but I love when Harry and Ginny first get together in THBP)
Im a book-eater so i would love to go to Dervish And Banges….it would be paradise on earth….My favorite book of all 7 is Deathly Hallows because its when The Truth (the reall not the one that everybody wants to believe) about Severus is acknowledge.
I can’t wait to experience Harry’s world in REALLIFE! I can’t possibly just pick one thing! :D
Favorite book is Deathly Hallows!
I am SO excited to see Hogwarts! It looks amazing from all of the pictures we’ve seen, and to actually be INSIDE the castle!!! I could die of happiness right then and there. I always wanted to go to Hogwarts, and although I didn’t receive an acceptance letter (I’m sure the owl just got lost making its way across the Atlantic), this is a way for me to finally go there. I also am looking forward to visiting Hogsmeade, and being able to buy my own wand!
First of all, thank you so much for making it worldwide available! I’d really love to visit Howarts castle indoors, although I’m from Argentina so I don’t know if I’ll be able to visit the park some day – I hope so!
My favorite book is definitely Half-Blood Prince. Why? It’s like the start of the end of Voldemort. I just love it!
I am most looking forward to feasting upon the spread of Deliciousness offered at the Wizarding World theme park: everything from Butterbeer to Pumpkin Juice, from roast potatoes to turkey legs, and absolutely everything in Honeydukes…I will have to save up on both money and calories for about five years prior to my visit, but reading about the food eaten by Harry and Co. was (for some reason) the highlight of books, and I am THRILLED to finally partake in their nutrional endeavours.
If I have to pick a favorite, I would say that Deathly Hallows is my favorite novel in the series, because we waited so long (and so very, very patiently) for it. And it also contains my favorite quote of the series: “Of course it has been happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean it is not real?”
I can’t wait to just see Hogwarts in person. We’ve seen the movies, we’ve seen it in our minds and now we get to see it up close! How cool is that?
My favorite book is Prisoner of Azkaban. The storyline was quite possibly the best Jo Rowling ever wrote!
Omg can’t wait!!!!!! I am so excited to be able to walk into Hogsmeade. Just the thought of expiriencing something like that makes my heart flutter. My favorite Harry Potter book was probably Deathly Hallows. OMG my fav!
Seeing the whole of Hogsmeade and Hogwarts castle.
My favorite Harry Potter book is Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
"Who're you writing the novel to anyway?" Ron asked Hermione, trying to read the bit of parchment now trailing on the floor. Hermione hitched it up out of sight.[br]"Viktor."[br][i]"Krum?"[/i][br]"How many other Viktors do we know?"
