    The Magical World of Harry Potter


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     A huge Harry Potter fan and devouring the books as they came out, mjmcgrath says her heart was racing a mile a minute when she got to step foot into the Wizarding World in Orlando, FL. " It truly is a magical experience that no Harry Potter fan can live without. Getting to see all of the things I imagined from the books come to life is an incredibly special experience," she says. "I most definitely plan on visiting many more times in the future. The magic of this place never goes away since it was such a crucial part of my adolescence."

    One of my all time favorite places in the ENTIRE world is the Harry Potter area of Islands of Adventure in Orlando, Florida. I am a huuuuuuuuuggee Harry Potter fan, so walking through the streets of Hogsmeade looking at wands, potions, owls, and robes is like a dream come true for me. The Hogwarts Castle is just magnificent, as well as the cool ride inside of it. My heart was pumping with excitement just by looking at the castle from a distance. We also took the time to drink some Butterbeer, which is a famous delicious non-alcoholic drink from the Harry Potter books/movies. It is deeeeeeeeeeeelish! It sort of tastes like a butterscotch soda, if you can imagine that :) I wish I could go here every single day, it is such a magical place.
