The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

I’ve spent a good portion of today checking out videos from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, which just opened in Orlando. Sure, there’s rollercoasters and all that junk, but what I love is the mise-en-scene of the whole thing. The attention to detail. Mobility scooters aside, Hogsmeade looks perfect.

The Ollivander’s spiel made me wish I was 13 years old again (the 31-year old me couldn’t help but see the genius of the scam behind it - what parent is not going to buy a wand for their child after it has ‘chosen them’).

The AttractionsMagazine youtube channel has tons more, if you’re also a giant man-child and fancy wasting a couple of hours too.
