GREETINGS FROM SUNNY FLORIDA ... HOME OF WIZARDING WORLD OF HARRY POTTER



After a grueling two day road trip and 1200 miles from Chicago to Orlando Florida, I arrived today at 3:30 in the afternoon. Exhausted, I checked into my hotel in the Disney resort. Plan to spend a few days here before actually going to Wizarding World. I booked a hotel walking distance to Islands Adventure in Universal Studio's, home of WW. I want to be relaxed and ready to spend most of the week there, experiencing every nuance of this exciting attraction!

Plan to see many pics and hopefully some footage (if I figure out how to on my camera) of WW. The weather is a perfect 80 balmy degrees so I will not melt.... Leaving the cold, damp north, was one of the many pluses coming down to Florida.

I don't have much to tell yet, but believe me I will have plenty after Wednesday.... so don't forget to stop back.

If I have the time and energy to do a fun Disney post tomorrow, I will try to do so. Please be patient with me, I have so much to do in so little vacation time.

Until then, have a GREAT day and thanks to all my fantastic blogger friends who follow me.

Don't forget to sigh up for my blogfest in a few weeks. It is HP themed, the winners will be getting unique HP gifts from WW, so don't forget to sign up on the linky. Press the banner and it will bring you directly there.

To all of you who have read my entry for Liz's blog. I will have a follow up to that story soon. Many have asked for details.

  10. Hope you have a fantastic time at WW! We're down visiting too - in St. Pete's but coming up to Orlando for Disney next week! Alas, the kidlets are more at the Disney stage so I'll save HP for another *being hopeful* visit. Looking forward to your pictures and have a wonderful visit!! :D

  11. I wish I was there on vacation with you. I've never been to Florida but hope to soon with the kids. Maybe in the next couple of years when my youngest is old enough to remember the trip.

    I'll be thinking of you and hope that you have a great Thanksgiving!
