Visited Harry Potter. Dreams come true.

I came all the way to Florida, from California, just to see The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I waiting in line from 6:30 am to about 11am just to get into the area, on opening day no less. It was utter and complete chaos. But I fell in love with it immediately. Despite the hour long lines and overpriced merchandise, I was consumed in a world that I've been imagining since I was 8 years old, and here I was engrossed in it. In Hogsmeade and Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. In Zonko's Joke Shop and Honeyduke's candy. It was utterly magical, no pun intended.
