One of my coworkers went in February. Pics looked awesome, I don’t think you will be disappointed. I hope to go some day but with my sister not with FI as he wouldn’t really enjoy it the same.

I’ve been.  I’m an insane Harry Potter fan, but I didn’t think it was that great.  Only 3 rides, and two of them are like 2 seconds long.  The lines everywhere are ridiculous.  I guess it’s cool to go once, but I wouldn’t go again.  However, the pumpkin juice and butterbeer are AMAZING.  Actually maybe I would go back just for those drinks… Delicious 🙂

OH EM GEE!!!!! Just got back last week from my honeymoon at you bet… harry potter and disney world!!!

It’s insanely crowded. The best ride is the castle ride. it’s soooo awesome, except it made me sick. but you’re suppose to be on a broomstick and you fly around the castle n encounter dementors… really scary!!!

the butterbeer is sooooo good!

Yes we went last summer – it was soooo much fun! They did a really good job. I’m not sure how it will be but I imagine still the same, so I recommend this: GO EARLY! Get there before the park opens. They let you in and you go wait in line for Harry Potter basically with everyone else. Do the rides FIRST and then you can go explore the shops and the bookstore (which are awesome). We had a great time and bought stuff at their stores, etc. 🙂

the lines weren’t really long… well we had a pass to cut in front of everyone. but the longest wait was the castle one which was 20, the other 2 is like 5 min without passes.

olivanders is probably the longest line!!!

no one really goes on the rides… everyone is busy exploring and it’s pretty tiny.

more pics for you. lol i took so many.

@SouthernGirl:  well every HP fan should definitely go once.  I just had my expectations up so high when I went, and didn’t want you to be disappointed!  Here are some more pictures though:

@SouthernGirl: Yeah just go early, especially if it’s during the summer. It gets HOT with all the people milling around. But I agree, it’s a one-time kind of thing. I wonder if my future kids will even care about something I (and their future uncles) was borderline obsessed with. Probably not. LOL.
