In just two short weeks, sunshine, butter beer, and magic will fill my days. While my kids were growing up, we made a yearly escape to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure in Orlando, Florida. As a family of avid movie buffs and adrenaline junkies, the destination provided thrills and memories unlike any other family vacation. In 2010, Universal brilliantly added Harry Potter to the mix and created an “island” dedicated to Hogwarts Castle and Hogsmeade. On July 8th, Universal will add a new dimension to the experience with Diagon Alley. Stay tuned for the inside scoop and photos, as well as a recap of last year’s adventure, but to wet your appetite here is the majestic Hogwarts Castle at Universal Studio’s Islands of Adventure.
