The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando [You're The Expert]

Did you know that Universal Orlando (at Islands of Adventure) is opening a new area called The Wizarding World of Harry Potter?  Not only does it have rides, it has shops, and a post office. Check out the list of places right below, and watch the video about the area just below that. The area opens officially this Friday, June 18th.

You can totally check out the area on Universal's website, where they've put together a wonderfully interactive set for you to explore before you go. So, now that you've seen what Universal has done, tell us what you think! Would you go? (I'm itching for some butter beer myself) Which place inside the Wizarding World do you most want to visit?

I'm going for my 5th wedding anniversary! In September. Without the kids! I plan on spending millions of dollars at Honeydukes. My husband has big plans for a wand at Ollivanders.

Being a Floridian, I'm SOOOOO excited for this [are of the] park to open!!! In fact, I've been kinda tracking it for years now since they announced that there would be an HP park. FYI - I heard a RUMOR that some of the rides won't be officially open til the Fall so some of you guys might want to confirm before going to the park this Summer.

I don't know which area I'd want to explore first - I want to see it all!! Vanessa and I are hoping to go in October (once the heat dies down a bit) and that way we can combine it w/ a few other events going on in Orlando at the time!

How exciting!

Since I live in Orlando, I'm definitely going to be going. My son and his fiance have already checked it out, they've had some soft openings in the last few weeks. I want to check out the new ride, Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey. The other two rides are rides that were already there, just refurbished to fit Harry Potter, so I'm not as excited about them. I also want to find out just what Butter Beer is.

I NEED to go to! I have no idea what I want to do first. Maybe get a wand, then grab a butterbeer in the Three Broomsticks?
