Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure Part 2

Continuation from previous post: Part 1

Getting out of King's Cross Station.
It's like a mini London area with Diagon Alley entrance on the side. 

Of course. Knight bus!!


King's Cross station



Something I like about these people is that they truly act their part lol. They incorporate words and stories in HP World. It kinda feel like you are really in HP World. They make the magical experience more complete. But if you don't like HP, then you will feel like they are just babbling.

Here we are!
The entrance to Diagon Alley.

Quidditch Supplies.


Weasley's Wizard Wheezes!!
I feel like this was one of the shops that truly hit straight to the heart. (my heart, haha)

The Leaky Cauldron menu.

this is how the entrance looks like from the inside of Diagon Alley

OMGG them details!
from the left.

from the right.

Feels.


Get your uniforms here guys. 

Cages for your owl.


I swear if I live in countries with winter, I will buy a Gryffindor scarf for sure.



This was my favourite building!

There's a ride in the Gringotts Bank. 
Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts
You will have to put your loose items in the locker so I couldn't get any picture. The inside of it looks exactly the same like the Gringotts bank with all the Goblins on both sides! Google it if you want to.

There's also single rider line so go with that if the normal line is long! I know people waited for hours for this ride too and we took the single rider line again. 

Ollivanders Wand Shop is of course a must in Diagon Alley













There are two types of wand sold. One is just like a normal wand. Another type slightly more expensive are interactive wands. Those interactive wands can really cast "magic" around the park at specific spots. For instance, I remember that building on the left above have some magic effects when the wand owner wave their interactive wand in front of it. Super cool right.
If I have kids and I stay in Orlando, I will buy annual passes and we can just go there everyday lololol


Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans





Late lunch at Leaky Cauldron. Everything was expensive and I didn't feel like it's worth it so I ordered the kid's Fish & Chips.




And this is how it looks like but I felt it was enough for me. Because thankfully I did not overeat, my tummy didn't go bad after the amount of roller coaster rides I took.








 Leaving Diagon Alley back to Hogsmeade and ready to explore the Islands of Adventure

 When getting into King's Cross station, alot of people don't realize is that, when you walk through a passage, the people apart from you (means those around you in other queue lanes) can see that you are walking into the wall. Just like in movies. 
I saw it when I was walking past the outer side of the passage and the man just vanished into the wall. I wonder how they did that effect. But of course the line moved quickly so I didn't have the chance to take a picture of it.





 Getting onto Hogwarts express.


 Here we have the projections again. Leaving London.

 All of sudden, we heard dementors. lol. I was really scared for a moment..



My last picture in the Harry Potter World. It felt so weird. Like I don't want to leave, I just want to hang out there forever. But yeah, we moved on to Marvel Superheroes land.
