Today, my amazing best friend took me to Universal and Islands of Adventure.

Hogwarts and Jurassic Park are neighbors!

We got there way early, so we had plenty of time to take photos before the park opened and filled with 10,000 people.

This was our very first ride of the day. I made it a while 15 seconds in line before being told I had to wear shoes while riding. That’s apparently the rule for all of their rides, even though it’s not posted on all of them.

I thought this was cute. It reminded me of Gasoline Alley in Red Deer.

So happy to be at Hogwarts!

We had lunch at The Three Broomsticks.

After lunch, we got to watch “Durmstrang students” perform.

After doing the ride inside Hogwarts, we rode the Hogwarts Express to Diagon Alley.

There’s an animatronic dragon on to of Gringotts!

Knockturn Alley is so cool!

The vanishing cabinet in Borgin and Burkes makes tweeting bird noises! I love the attention to detail!

You can buy just about anybody’s wand, and Lupin and Tonks wands are next to each other. ❤️

All aboard the Knight Bus! This is just outside the entrance to Diagon Alley.

I have no idea who this Transformer is.

We caught another great performance while we had a snack break!

We went back to Diagon Alley after our snack to take a second look at everything and managed to catch the dragon breathing fire!

All in all, a wonderful day!

Oh, and we had Moes for dinner. No issues being barefoot there.

The menu has changed substantially since I was last there. They now have these burrito bowls called Earmuffs. They’re really good and I highly recommend them!
