I’ve been itching to go an adventure and dreaming up all of the awesome and geeky things I could do, so I decided to write a post about my Harry Potter and Wizarding World specific bucket list items.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando
I’ve been to the Wizarding World at Universal Hollywood, but the one in Orlando looks twice as magical. With both Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade, the ability to ride the Hogwarts Express, the Gringotts ride, and all of the amazing shops and experiences, Universal Orlando’s has so much more amazing things to it than Hollywoods. Plus I miss frozen Butterbeer which is the most delicious thing ever.
Harry Potter in Concert
If you didn’t know, there is a film concert series where an orchestra plays the music from the different Harry Potter films. Each concert focuses on a single film, so I’d love to be able to see the Goblet of Fire concert. Goblet of Fire has my favorite soundtrack from all of the films because I love the Quidditch World Cup music, the mermaids singing, the darker moments as the story turns, and Durmstrang and Beauxbatons moments.
Warner Bros. Studio Tour in London
I’m pretty sure this one is on my original geeky bucket list post, which is just even more reason why I need to do it. Exploring the sets and costumes and all of the bits and pieces that made the magical world go from the page to screen is right up my Diagon Alley of things I’d love to experience.
Yes, Quidditch is actually played brooms and all. While I don’t think I have the physical prowess to be a player, I think it would be really fun and a unique adventure to go watch a match or even the Quidditch World Cup. It’s kind o crazy that people took a fictional sport, that also involved flying, and made it doable in the real world.
