Who needs Orlando?

February 21, 2010

I recently watched the superbowl ad for the new Harry Potter theme park at Universal Studios in Orlando and it just basically looks like one big Harry Potter shopping mall.

But really who needs to go to Orlando when you could just go to the UK and have your own Harry Potter tour which is way more authentic?

First stop, London Zoo, where Harry Potter discovers that he can talk to snakes and without knowing makes the glass disappear in front of his cousin Dudley.

Luckily the glass was still there when I visited.

Next stop is Kings Cross Station where Harry Potter has to find platform 9 and 3/4 to get to Hogwarts.

"It's best to take it at a run."

And finally it’s time to arrive at Hogwarts, which JK Rowling based on the castle built on a hill, Edinburgh Castle.

None of my pictures came out this good, but I did go there.

All it’ll take is an extra $1000 or so…
