Another sunny day in Orlando, Florida. With rain early morning, I had planned to spend the day writing on the 21st floor of my hotel overlooking the lagoon. Well, as most people know Florida rains one moment and five minutes later the sun blazes.
By noon the sun shined brightly and I ventured over to Islands of Adventure. Only a twenty minute walk to the park from my hotel, I arrived by twelve thirty.
Today's post I will be featuring the castle.
By far this is one of the most magnificent views of Hogwart's castle. The two winged warthog gargoyles flanking the entrance to at he multi-spired castle, does take one's breath away.
If you travel down a cobble stone street toward Jurassic Park, you get a fantastic side view.
Inside the Great Hall, are THE talking portraits. It is so awesome. The holograms are so realistic!
This area is a perfect replica on a smaller scale. The marble staircase only traveled up a few flights, but as you climb to the second level you can get a better look at the talking paintings.
Yes, this is Dumbledore's office. The details are amazing with thousands of books and gadgets.
Look closely and yo can see Professor Dumbledore himself as he's speaking....
When you visit. Take the time. IGNORE the crowds and LOOK at EVERYTHING. Even inside the locker room, stores, and restaurants.
Drop by tomorrow to see pics of the stores ... up close and personal.
I hope you enjoyed the pics.
Although I am leaving tomorrow to head over to Cocoa Beach, I will post pics of Wizarding World for the next few days.
Friday's post will be my regular weekly post of Earthly Angels. Don't forget if you'd like to share you experience with a special person, I want to hear about it.
Have a GREAT Wednesday.
