Like how I was lucky enough to spend the summer studying abroad, and how I left Hogwarts on a thestral and made the long trip from Scotland to Romania to study Dragons! I would have stopped overnight at Beauxbatons Academy to visit some friends and eventually traveled through the very forest that He Who Must Not Be Named once hid in exile in Albania on my way to Romania.

If only I could actually live in the world of Harry Potter!

I can’t wait to visit the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Florida but until then I’m so excited that I can live out my fantasy tonight at Grafton at 9:30. With Part 2 coming to theaters soon I am definitely going to take this opportunity to see Part 1 on the big screen again.
