Ever since Elaine got really into Harry Potter, we have talked about going to the new Harry Potter world in LA. So one day we kinda just set a day and ordered the park tickets, hotel, and plane tickets. After all that planning, the special day has arrived.
Elaine’s dad came to pick me up at around 6:30AM cause our check in time was 8:30AM. When we got to the airport her dad was telling us to be careful and all that and he gave his daughter a hug and he leaned in and I thought he was going to give me a hug too so I leaned in but he ended up sticking his hand out lol. Typical Asian dad.
It was both our first time riding Virgin America so we were excited, and we had to right to be cause the plane was so nice. And of course we had to get the window and middle seat to take aesthetic picture of the outside.
When we got to LA we took uber to our hotel and after unloading everything we went straight to the park. Universal is less than 5 minutes away from our hotel and there was a special shuttle that took us there, so it was super convenient.
The first thing we did when we got there was go straight to Harry Potter world. And let me just say, even though it was small, it was definitely the most magical place I’ve ever been to. Disneyland can’t even compare to this. We went into every store just looking at everything little thing. The detail in every corner was amazing and it really made me feel like I was in the wizarding world.
The main attraction was inside the castle and it was a 4D ride which makes you feel like you’re flying with Harry while on an adventure. While in line, you get to see bits and pieces of what was shown in the movie, like Dumbledore’s office, the house points, the screaming lady door, moving pictures, classrooms. It was all very overwhelming, but in a good way. The ride had so many turns and movements that it gave Elaine and I a headache, and it didn’t help that we both hadn’t eaten.
After an hour or two we decided to explore the rest of the park. We went into the simpson’s world to have lunch, and ride their 4D ride.
What a magical day it was today.
